Code P0011 - Cams advanced

Postby TeddWoody » Mon May 04, 2020 1:55 pm

**2006 M35 with 211k**

I have done some work, figured out the misfire issues on the car but still getting a P0011 code and it will occasionally start idling very rough. I figured out, with the help of my dad, that if the service engine light is on, it runs much rougher. We found a couple of coil packs were bad and 1 plug was finger tight and the plug well was full of oil: Fixed!

Wondering if there is any way to turn back the timing electronically? Is there a way to do this with a "Superchips" type tuner or even through an Infiniti specific mechanic that is not the dealer? Or do I just get the ODB2 reader on my phone and be able to clear the code when it shows up?

Thanks in advance,

Tedd "Not-a-mechanic" Woody

Have you considered the vvt solenoid? I suggest going to a local auto wreckers and pull the solenoid. P0011 point to the Bank ! which is the passenger side for your car.

Hi Dennis Yes we checked that and took them apart and they were working fine, not sticking, no rust, no issue

I had a similar problem with a P0014 code. The solenoid bench tested fine but I decided to change it anyway. The new solenoid solved my problem. I think the old one was probably just weak.

Wow, you don't mess around. You probably didn't need two since you don't have a code for the "B" bank. Not a bad idea to change them at the same time though, especially with that much mileage.

I found them for a deal, brand new pair for $35.00 Im sure they are not the highest quality, but if they fix it for a while. I don't want to spend a ton of money on a car with 211k miles on it, but I need it to work for a while. They are easy enough to change out.
