2013 G37 P0011

Postby nsbritt » Sat Mar 20, 2021 9:50 am

Our 2013 G37AWD has 62K miles and its giving the P0011 code. We bought it with 20K on it and I don't think they ever changed the oil. I have been trying to clean up with lots of oil changes. It went into limp home mode and showed the 0011 code. Changed the oil and it started but then died. I cleared the code and it never came back but car still wouldn't start, NO CODES now. The research I have done has been frustrating because all I find is info for older models and isn't accurate for a 2013. Does it need to run for a bit to show the code again? I cleaned all the sensors and actuators but the car still won't start, which is strange to me. I would think it would start even if still in "limp" mode. I'm new to the forum thing so I hope I am using it right and am desperate for any help. Thanks folks.

Nothing about a stuck IVT will prevent starting, so even though the oil history is bad, that's most likely not your problem. It sounds more like a cam or crank sensor was dying and now it's dead. Most N/I ECM's will no-start if one cam sensor is bad but will start up using the crank sensor only if both cam sensors are bad. So try pulling the connectors on both cam sensors and see if it starts. If not, the bad one is probably the crank. If so, the code indicates bank1 (passenger side), so the culprit is probably the bank1 cam sensor.

Bought a cam sensor and swapped it in both places with no help. Will try crank sensor, thanks so much. This is the type of help I have been needing.

Crank shaft sensor did not change anything, still can't get a code on my cheap code reader. Sprayed a little starter fluid in both intakes and it tries to start. I was hoping that would get it to turn over enough to show a code but no luck. Any more ideas?? PS: crank sensor was tough to find and takes a little wrestling to get replaced, wish it would have helped. Thanks again.

My vote is for the Intake valve timing control solenoid valve, even though the motor should still be able to start if that was the only issue. Looks like you have exhausted other possible causes. I would take the the bank 1 valve out and inspect (clean). If that doesn't help I would replace it.
