hi there

im cam, a licenced diagnostic tech

this code is for over-advanced timing.

2 problems that would cause this code..

1. Engine oil level or quality

check the oil for low level and if the oil is old and requires changing. wrong grade oil will also cause this code as this affects the vvt system.
low oil level will cause this code

if the the oil is low or excessivly dirty than change it and reset the codes and see if it returns

2. VVT solenoid (variable valve timing solenoid)

these are common to get stuck and keep timing over advanced. the computer will notice this and store the code

If the oil level is ok and not dirty than your likely cause of your trouble code is this vvt solenoid as it is faulty and over advancing the timing when commanded off, and this will require replacing.

let me know how you make out !

please take a moment to rate me and i am always available for follow ups after rating

thanks and i appreciate positive ratings!
