Hi . I have a 2008 kia sorento 3.3 engine . I have a trouble code of P0016 . I replaced the crank sensor because it ohmed out to high .I removed the bank 1 solenoid and it was clean and the valve moved with power to it , Still have p0016 code

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the vehicle stall at low speeds? Does it sputter?

NO . Has a longer crank time to start

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Sorento yourself? What have you tried so far?

I replaced the crank sensor because ohms were not in spec . I removed the the bank one solenoid to check the screen and it was clean .I powered it up and it moved . don't know what else could cause this trouble code

No . I have not replaced the timing and the oil is clean

For this DTC to set

DTC Description
ECM monitors timing misalignment while no active faults is present and fully warmed up engine oil at idle.
If the timing is misaligned ECM determines that a fault exists and a DTC is stored.
