INSPECTION PROCEDURE

Tech Tips

Read freeze frame data using the intelligent tester. The ECM records vehicle and driving condition information as freeze frame data the moment a DTC is stored. When troubleshooting, freeze frame data can help determine if the vehicle was moving or stationary, if the engine was warmed up or not, if the air fuel ratio was lean or rich, and other data from the time the malfunction occurred.

PROCEDURE


  1. CHECK ANY OTHER DTCS OUTPUT (IN ADDITION TO DTC P0016 OR P0018)


    1. Connect the intelligent tester to the DLC3.

    2. Turn the engine switch on (IG).

    3. Turn the tester on.

    4. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine / DTC.

    5. Read the DTCs.

      Result
      Result Proceed to
      DTC P0016 or P0018 is output A
      DTC P0016 or P0018 and other DTCs are output B

      Tech Tips

      If any DTCs other than P0016 or P0018 are output, troubleshoot those DTCs first.

  2. PERFORM ACTIVE TEST USING INTELLIGENT TESTER (CONTROL THE VVT LINEAR (BANK 1 OR BANK 2))


    1. Connect the intelligent tester to the DLC3.

    2. Start the engine.

    3. Turn the tester on.

    4. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine / Active Test / Control the VVT Linear (Bank 1) or Control the VVT Linear (Bank 2).

    5. Check the engine speed while operating the camshaft timing oil control valve assembly using the tester.

      OK
      Tester Operation Engine Condition
      0% Normal engine idle speed
      100% Engine idles roughly or stalls

    NG
    OK
  3. CHECK WHETHER DTC OUTPUT RECURS (P0016 OR P0018)


    1. Connect the intelligent tester to the DLC3.

    2. Turn the engine switch on (IG).

    3. Turn the tester on.

    4. Clear the DTCs Click here.

    5. Drive the vehicle for more than 10 minutes.

    6. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine / DTC / Pending.

    7. Read the pending DTCs.

      Result
      Result Proceed to
      DTC is not output A
      DTC P0016 or P0018 is output B

      Tech Tips

      DTC P0016 or P0018 may be stored when foreign objects in the engine oil are caught in some parts of the system. The DTC will remain stored even if the system returns to normal after a short time. These foreign objects may then be captured by the oil filter.

      Text in Illustration
      *1 Timing Mark

      Remove the cylinder head cover sub-assemblies RH and LH.

    2. Turn the crankshaft to align the timing marks of the crankshaft.

    3. Align the notch of the crankshaft pulley to the "0" position.

    4. Check if the timing marks of the camshaft pulley and camshaft bearing cap align.

    5. Turn the crankshaft clockwise 360° if the timing marks do not align. Check if they align once again.

      OK
      The timing marks of the camshaft pulley and the camshaft bearing cap align when the notch of the crankshaft pulley is in the "0" position.
    6. Reinstall the cylinder head cover sub-assemblies RH and LH.


    NG
    OK
  5. INSPECT CAMSHAFT TIMING OIL CONTROL VALVE ASSEMBLY (FOR INTAKE CAMSHAFT)


    1. A019PD8E08

      Remove the camshaft timing oil control valve assembly for intake camshaft.

    2. Measure the resistance according to the value(s) in the table below.

      Standard Resistance
      Tester Connection Condition Specified Condition

    3. A019O40E02

      Connect the positive (+) battery terminal to terminal 1 and connect the negative (-) battery terminal to terminal 2. Check the valve operation.

      OK
      Valve moves quickly.
    4. Reinstall the camshaft timing oil control valve assembly for intake camshaft.


    NG
    OK
  6. INSPECT OIL CONTROL VALVE FILTER AND OIL PIPE


    1. A019L1VE01
      Text in Illustration
      *1 Bank 1
      *2 Bank 2

      Remove the No. 1 oil pipe or No. 2 oil pipe.

    2. Remove the oil control valve filter RH or oil control valve filter LH.

    3. Check that the oil control valve filter and oil pipe are not clogged.

      OK
      The oil control valve filter and oil pipe are not clogged.
    4. Reinstall the oil control valve filter RH or oil control valve filter LH.

    5. Reinstall the No. 1 oil pipe or No. 2 oil pipe.
