Q: P0017 code 2008 Isuzu i-290

asked by on

p0017 code. Have changed the oil & filter, changed both the camshaft and crankshaft position sensors. Also changed the valve timing actuator solenoid. Still have the code p0017. What can I try next?

My car has 98050 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi There, As you know, code p0017 relates to the correlation of the camshaft and crankshaft position sensors. There are a number of things beyond replacing the sensors that also may trigger this code such as the following:

-Timing chain stretched -Timing belt skipped a tooth due to wear -Misalignment of timing belt/chain -Tone ring on crankshaft slipped/broken -Tone ring on camshaft slipped/broken -Damaged wiring to crank/cam sensor -Timing belt/chain tensioner damaged -An improperly torqued crankshaft balancer

I would recommend having a professional from YourMechanic come to your location to take a look at your vehicle.
