OBD Code P0015 - B Camshaft Position - Timing Over-Retarded Bank 1
This error code is actually a generic code that indicates the PCM (or ECM) has determined a problem in the exhaust camshaft timing in bank 1. The problem refers to the camshaft timing, in which it’s over-retarded (delayed) compared to where it should be. This over-retarded issue can occur in either advancing or retarding phase. This means the camshaft and crankshaft timing is off, and that the camshaft is behind from where it should be in relation to the crankshaft. This primarily causes issues with the overall running of the vehicle and potentially impacts engine performance.
What causes this problem with the "B" Camshaft Position -Timing Over-Retarded?
- The variable camshaft timing oil control valve can be stuck in the open position
- The camshaft phaser is stuck in the retarded position because of damaged or clogged oil passages
- Oil flow problems to the VCT piston and phasor from incorrect oil viscosity
- The OCV or the ECM might have an open circuit
