In this video I have a look at a 2010 Kia Sedona 3.8 that came in fresh from the auction with a P0016. Working with a head cold I almost pull the trigger on the timing chain! Better have a closer look and not make any mistakes. Remember, TEST DON'T GUESS! -Enjoy!

    What is the name of the tool that you used to check the solenoids by energizing them? Thanks

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars SerenoOunce says:

    Working on a 2008 Sorento 3.8l, had same codes P0016, p0300, P0301/3/5. What had me chasing my tail was the misfire counters on scan tool climbing for the bank 2 cylinders. Sometimes on #2, go to restart they'd be jumping up for #4, occasionally then on #6. Once I saw the difference between intake advance actual/desired and it being stuck at 50 deg adv, it became obvious the VVT was the culprit. Fortunately it wasn't corroded in on this vehicle but Kia put a steel coolant Y pipe in the front engine bracket that prevented removal. Rather than take off the lower intake and deal with draining coolant + a lot more labor time I cut off 1/4" of the pipe and it slid right out. Section of the filter screen was torn and got lodged in the valve. Removed the debris, replaced the screen with an old dead valve I was hoarding and wound up being a no-parts req fix. Dealers want stupid $ for these and aftermarket quality is shady at best.

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Cesar Jimenez says:

    That is some excellent diagnosing. High five on that. What was the final report?
    Also, what is the name of the software that your using to read the ociliscop readings.

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mr. C says:

    2010 Kia Soul 2.0L, just completed a timing belt, water pump, tensioner replacement. No check engine lights prior to installation. The engine ran smoothly right after the installation.

    The very next day, 2 codes appeared; P0016 bank 1 sensor A and P0441 EVAP. The engine sounded fine and eventually P0441 disappeared.

    Should I recheck my work as far as timing/alignment, improper tension of the timing belt? or could I have possibly disturbed the crankshaft/camshaft position sensors?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, TY

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Maxwel Anyanwu says:

    Hey Eric, can the timing affect the MAP sensor?

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars HunterShows says:

    Wow, carfax certified!

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michigander says:

    So what was the cause?

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Milkey says:

    Hi, Thanks for the vvt sensor videos. I had a similar problem on my 2012 Soul. Could you please tell me the name of the clever little wire protection tool you were inserting before knifing open the harness. Thanks

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gerald Hinson says:

    Eric (or whoever), what was the little red gadget you used to check the ohm and to "give it the beans (TM)"? I checked your store on amazon and didn't see anything that looked like it. My multimeter will do the former but not the latter I think. I'm doing this same diagnosis on my son's Kia at the moment. Great video as always!

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars atsimas says:

    Seriously, we send people in the space, and they still haven't made an interface to just plug the connector of the car's interface intermediately and record what you want to record?!

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Scott B says:

    What is the name of the tool used to protect the wires in the loom when you cut?

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars simon pitts says:

    Hi great video , can I ask where you get that tool that you put in the wiring loom to protect it when cutting ??

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars JL's Auto Solution says:

    A common issue is the screen around the ocv(oil control valve) becomes loose and blocks the ocv from operating..

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bluewrench61 says:

    What about watching the pattern from first cranking, extended cranking and then run to possibly see the oil pressure build up and advance the cam timing if you were unable to access the oil control solenoid?

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars LAnonHubbard says:

    Hope your cold is better. About to watch part 2. Thanks for making the video!

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin Johnson says:

    Always a pleasure watching you work. I definitely know how hard it is to think with a 'cloudy' head. I have an '07 Mitsubishi Galant ES 2.4 that seems to 'struggle when starting. I want to check the connections when it gets a bit warmer. They stuck the damn starter under the exhaust manifold, but such is life. I've the car for 3 yrs. now and am happy with it. Also had problems with battery not have=ing enough oomph, but thats mostly because I don't drive it every day and only happens on '0' days. Also want to go through and check all the circuits to see if I have any drawing extra power which I believe you mentioned in a video. thanks for sharing.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Spencer H says:

    Hey Eric, So where did you get that New Tool from?

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Eric says:

    South Korean Auto repair channel

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Radio Rescue says:

    What year was this van? Great find on the phaser

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 8power0 says:

    ERICK ERICK I HAVE NEVER SAID THIS ABOUT YOUR DIAGNOSTIC VIDEOS BEFORE BUT THAT DAM VIDEO WAS REALLY WORTH WATCHING…, AND ANOTHER THING I ALSO LEARNED SOMETHING NEW I HAVE WATCHED MANY OF YOUR VIDEOS BUT THIS ONE WAS A BIT DIFFERENT IT WAS DOWN TO EARTH TRULY EASY TO UNDERSTAND AND TO REMEMBER . JUST THOUGHT I WOULD LET YOU KNOW THAT WAS A DAM GOOD VIDEO THANKS AND I WILL BE LOOKING FORWARD FOR MANY MORE .

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gary Vanderbrink says:

    WHAT WAS THE NAME OF THE NEW TOOL YOU HAD WHEN YOU OPENED THE WIRING HARNESS, AND WHERE DID YOU GET IT? I FOUND THE TESA TAPE AS YOU SAID ON AMAZON. KEEP UP THE EXCELLENT VIDEOS.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Just2362 says:

    Can you use a low currant clamp for the relative compression test?

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Arthur Fricchione says:

    Good video Eric. Guess I should have watched part 1 before part 2 but what the heck. Somedays are just that way as im sure you know. ❤️️

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars markam campbell says:

    what is the oil pressure

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kaye Wortman says:

    I wish I could learn to read and understand how to use electronics….so sad I can't

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars backyardbasher says:

    Come on Eric we are waiting for P2!

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars J U says:

    As a prior owner of a 3v 5.4 triton, my mind immediately went to "stuck phaser/solenoid."

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Keith DeFazio says:

    Ya need to tap it like the Fonz silly 😉

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars spin1275gt says:

    Great video Eric, there just one thing i think you shouldn't use with the pico and thats the static crankshaft degrees. A running engine is accelerating and decelerating all the time. So the 720 crankshaft line should be dynamic. Youre now measuring 30 degrees but it could be something like 28 of maybe 32. For this diagnose it doesn't really mater. But if your checking ignition timing for exemple 1 or 2 degrees does make a lot of difference.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nick L says:

    good work!

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Auto-Tech says:

    Hi Erick, great video as allways. I't would have been great to dry-run the engine (no/low oil) for 5 seconds to re-take the cam-crank correlation, and i would have checked the pcm driver for that actuator before seelling the actuator to the customer (wich i'm pretty sure you did). I'm also looking forward to part 2. 👍👍👍

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andrew Maas says:

    Quick question I have a 98 s10 and I can’t get the security light to shut off I’ve done the key relearn process several times and it still won’t work

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars German Karpov says:

    vvt i "phasers' on toyota doesn't work at idle /// Does Kia designed this things differently?

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Airman says:

    The telltale of P016.
    Its always good to watch SMA in action

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars IVOR WM says:

    Thank you for sharing. I cannot afford to contribute. But I appreciate your video

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tony Griffiths says:

    Hmmm 50 lashes for catching yet another cold ! We need you fit and perfetct for the job, nothing else will do. Goodness me Sir, that is not only extremely rude, that is also anatomically impossible 🙂

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars mike y says:

    Great tutorial! Thank you Eric. It's a 2011-2013 3.5Lv6, 272hp, 250lbs, 6 speed auto in Cristal Blue. I bought the same new in 2011 for my wife. Paid CAD 25252 cash taxes in. There was 8k cash discount. Very strong peppy engine, smooth tranny. As of today we put 82000 kM. My wife drives kids to school, shopping and to church, same scenario. Change oil every 7K kM. Most of those km short 10- 15min drives on a cold engine. ( heavy duty cycle.) There were 3-4 recalls. Most significant: oil pressure probe leakage and front control arms. Would buy again in a 💓 beat.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars korutube says:

    I always check the intake and exhaust solenoids when I see a correlation code. A lot of the time they are full of sludge and cleaning them fixes the issue. If you do change them best to change in pairs. Same with the cam and crank sensors.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jr neff says:

    quote the job cheap we wanting to see you fix the car lol maybe the customer will give the thumps up what are they going to do park it under a tree lol normally yes a shop messed with the car first thing is to check timing maybe that shop is off the hook now maybe they timed the engine right timing is still timing they couldn't go the extra step or have the scope to see dang the cam phaser is bad thks mr o

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Voltage Drop Diagnostics says:

    Another great video! one of my favorites uses of a scope is checking cam timing. It would have sucked to pull valve covers and timing covers to just find it had a bad solenoid. Good find!

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jason Cassidy says:

    Try using a sewing seam ripper for cutting tape on harnesses, that’s what I use and it works good

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Larry K says:

    Canada says Hi Enjoy your video keep it real.

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Snake Skin Productions says:

    Nice catch. I would be very interested to see how this turns out. I have run into this a time or 2 before with varying results. First time the boss farmed out the vehicle to another shop and I never did find out what the out come was. The shop I worked in at the time was fast paced (used car lot) and the boss didn't like us to get to in depth. Guess that's why I'm not there anymore.(lol) The other had a heap of other issues and the boss (same one) opted for an engine swap. Have a good Home (shop) I'm at now and would very much like to see how this spins out for my own reference. Thanks brother and keep um coming.Peace out…lol

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Two pumps Andimdone says:

    Same with wife’s car, next day I went out to the drive way to start it..wouldn’t crank money light on. Gave me the same code, I don’t believe it, tried to start again…kicked it..said *ucki&@ Hyundai..randomly did a compression test..
    All cylinders DEAD..

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars toolbox845 says:

    Will there be a floe

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars dan man says:

    hope there part 2
