Hi guys, I need your help here:

i really enjoy the 04 CTT and changed some faulty parts during my ownership including the coils, coolant pipes and the air pump O-ring. but the check engine light keeps coming back and it is really annoying(it however never shows at the system warning section on the dash, only the CEL light shows up sometimes). It would dissapear after couple of days and come back shortly.

I got a chance to scan it with the Durametric today and get the following:


Positive crankcase ventilation

hearter output stage

No signal/Communication


Crankshaft Position-Camshaft Pos.

Correlation Bank 1 Sensor A

Short to Ground or Positive

after I clear the codes and restart the engine, the P1182 code came back but not the P0016 one.

any suggestion here?? I never heard of the P1182 code

for the P0016 code, should I just change the camshaft position sensor? is it a big job or at DIY level?

I do appreciate any feedback.

I checked the F50 fuse and there was nothing there. and according to my owners manual there should be nothing.

I put in a 10 amp fuse and then delete the error code just to see whats gonna happen.

after restarting the durametric, the code was not coming back! I did not re-start the engine since I was in the closed garage(I just pull the key out after deleting the code and put it back and turn to the first stop, hope that was the proper way to do it).

I will plug in again after couple of days driving and see what happens.

THANKS guys :)

some updates for the issue. and I still need your guys help:

  • P1182:

I put the fuse in F50 and I also replaced the PCV valve under the "TURBO" plastic cover. the old one that I have is not working : the check valve on the branch to intake could not be closed. It is really easy to check and it is like 2 mins job. after that no code comes back.

  • P0016

I still have this from time to time. and I notice it always happens during the first 10 mins/3 miles driving. It never comes up after that. and after 3-4 driving cycles, it goes off. and it comes back in a day or two. I hooked up the Durametric last night and checked the camshaft actual angel of bank 1 and 2. I noticed that the bank 2 is at -1.00 all the time. but bank 1 moves around -4 to -6. I rev the engine to 2000rpm and then bank 1 came to -1.00 and stayed there. code did not came back.

so if i want to do some further trouble shooting, what parameters should I be tracking on Durametric? and what are the limits for these readings?

someone was suggesting that the chain might be a little loose.

I really appreciate your advice! and happy new year :renntech:

BTW it is a 04 CTT with 115k miles on it. I replaced all the plugs(except one), coils, pipes,T,new 2nd battery under the woofer,purge valve, PCV valve at around 100k miles.

idle is a little rough. it improved a bit when I had the injector cleaned last week.

Any one?

I now kinda believe it is related to the timing chain, either stretched or the VarioCam, or just the tensioner.

but i could not find much information regarding the timing chain replacement. it seems they are pretty solid pieces.

somehow i did not see the "camshaft deviation angle" parameter on my Durametric,

Only saw the camshaft Actual angle and the Setpoint angle(16.5).

could anyone tell me what are the readings on your CTT for the setpoint angle and the actual angle?

thanks a lot!
