The code poo14 is telling you that the camshaft position timing over advanced / system performance.

This can also be lack of oil to the vvt.

Change oil and filter with good oil and not cheap oil.

Hi can you ask my question the car is Monterey California I drive all way done to check up now I'm ready to came back to Sacramento I like to fix this car this morning thanks Malcolm
Mercedes Mechanic: Merc320, Technician replied 6 months ago

The vvt is the camshaft sprocket itself. It is controlled by oil pressure thats why i suggested changing oil.

You may have to renew vvt sprocket to stop it advancing too much.

Ok when'd I change the oil was very dirty you think if I still drive with the code is going to damage something else
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
If my marks looks perfect on the top and bottom you think this problem is related on the oil pressure or the camshaft sensor?
Mercedes Mechanic: Merc320, Technician replied 6 months ago

I would put an oil additive in the engine to clean the parts.

Then drain and renew oil again if the oil was that bad.

what you definetly dont want is the vvt advancing so much a valve touches a piston.

Rectify the problem before you drive far.

Mercedes Mechanic: Merc320, Technician replied 6 months ago

You think Lukas syntetic additive is good for this mb I can't find forte additive?
Mercedes Mechanic: Merc320, Technician replied 6 months ago

yes it will.

Read the instructions ,some just idle for half an hour and some you can drive for a while then drain.

This is trial and error ,you might still have to renew vvt sprocket but this is a cheaper option to try first.

Hi we done ????
Mercedes Mechanic: Merc320, Technician replied 6 months ago

Hi

i am sorry my internet has been playing up.

The vvt sprockets are on the camshafts.

the valve timing must be incorrect.
