DME Fault P1349

Recommended Posts

Dear All,

I have been having an intermittent problem with the check engine light coming on every so often and needing to be reset by the dealer. There is no deterioration in engine performance and no signs of anything going wrong except for the dash warning light.

Fault identified by the dealer was P1349 camshaft adjustment, bank 1, intermittent (unfortunately I have no idea what any of this means).

The report also mentioned that the camshaft position 1 deviation was 1.76deg crk compared to camshaft position 2 of -3.17deg crk. Once again no idea what this means except to understand that the engines timing is out one side compared to the other.

The dealer has informed me that it is an intermittent problem and not serious yet. Car is going in for full timing adjustment/check within the next few weeks but in the meantime just want some additional comfirmation that it is not a major issue to continue driving the car whilst awaiting sending it in. Would the durametrics be able to clear the fault in the meantime (I have just ordered it)?

Much thanks in advance for any further expansion of what are the implications of the current engine fault as per the DME reading, as the dealer is not great at explaining. Understand that if it gets worse, the cars ECU will go into some sort of "limp" mode to prevent damage to the engine?

P1349 Camshaft Adjustment, Bank 1 – Below Limit

Solenoid hydraulic valve is triggered, camshaft does not switch into early position.

Possible fault cause:

- Dirt in system

- Solenoid hydraulic valve mechanically blocked

Thanks very much Loren. That is what they thought so they replaced the solenoid valve. When they took the car for a test drive, all was ok until a few minutes later the check engine light came back on. They changed out the valve back to the original and now say that it is possible the timing is out. Intention is to drop the engine and do full adjustment/check on timing. Does that make sense or should they be checking something else first? My concern is we could be going down a big dollar wild goose chase here.
