I'm sorry you are having problems with your vehicle. I will try to help.I'm a full time mechanic and have been a mechanic for over 20 yrs and I work part-time here on JustAnswer to help you and others repair their own vehicles, and I get credited by your ratings.. So before leaving the site make sure and leave me a rating. You can still reply to me as many times as neeed, even after the rating.. I will need for you to be my hands and eyes since I'm not there.It determines the timing of the vvt by reading the cam and crank sensors. So if you accidentally got the belt off and advanced the cam that way it would set the code too.Double check and make sure the t-belt is dead on.Let me know if you have any questions.Thanks

I seemed to have sorted the P0011 code ( bad plug ) now I have a P0345 code, camshaft position sensor "A" circuit ( bank 2 ). Where is the sensor on bank 2? Mitchell on demand and all data do not even show a cam position sensor on bank 2
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Sorry Tim, I don't mean to be all over the place but my tech didn't have the cam sensor plugged in. Once he did P0011 and P0021 popped there ugly heads up again. I'll get back to you after testing.
Toyota Mechanic: tims auto repair, mechanic replied 1 year ago

ok,please do

Hey Tim, I've run all the tests I can but I do not have an oscilloscope. I can command the valve timing to advanced with my Snap-on scan tool which causes the engine to idle terribly.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
We have checked valve time and again the timing marks are dead on.

New expert here.

No one has said anything about the engine oil. Have you checked the oil level and condition?
I have seen aftermarket oil filters cause these codes as well, they filter too much restricting the flow. Which sets the code.

Please reply to this if you need more help, then we can continue this conversation. Please rate at the top of the screen. Rating does not close out your question. Remember, sometimes it is difficult to completely diagnose your vehicle without being there, but I will try to give you the best answer I can.

Thanks Dan

Hey Dan, the oil has been changed with a Wix filter. Some history on this job. Vehicle came in with bad timing belt. Vehicle very well maintained. Replaced belt, waterpump and all valves. Also replaced OCV filters on both sides. Checked OCV's with digital ohm meter then cycled both with 12 volt power. All tests pass. Vehicle is running poorly, lacks power and fuel economy poor. Have DTC's P0011 & P0021. Have checked timing marks a dozen times. No exaggeration. Used a Gates timing belt with alignment marks and arrows. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thank, Kevin.
Toyota Mechanic: Dan, ASE Master Technician replied 1 year ago

Can you see the cam phasers moving on the scan tool under live data? You will need to be driving and under some acceleration while watching the scan tool.

No Dan I have not checked that as of yet I will do so tomorrow and get back to you. What should my readings be?
Toyota Mechanic: Dan, ASE Master Technician replied 1 year ago

I can get the specs tomorrow. I am not at the shop right now.

I understand and I'm not at my shop either I will talk to you tomorrow morning thanks again. So far you've been the most knowledgeable of anyone I've spoken to.
Toyota Mechanic: Dan, ASE Master Technician replied 1 year ago

You should be able to see the timing advance on the scan tool while driving on both banks.

I am not familiar with wix oil filters. I would put a Toyota one on. That is the easiest thing to try first.
