The common cause for the code P1140 to set on your 3.5 is in most cases caused by a failing Intake Valve Timing Control Position (IVTCP) Sensor (passenger) side. (. Before you consider replacing it you should check the voltage at the sensor. I have enclosed the steps to do this in the link below. If the voltage reading check okay then replacing the sensor should solve this code for you.
