    Ok so let me start by saying that I just got done making the drive up to California from Phoenix, Az. As I was about 40 miles from my hotel my ultra gauge threw a code. The code is P0011 and after some research is due to the cams timing being advanced?? What should I do? Will I be ok driving till I get back to Phoenix?

    I just recently had a P0012 code on mine. Went to autozone to check the code and they gave me a similar description saying my camshaft timing was off. However, when I took it to the dealership the real problem was a bad oil control valve. My code kept getting thrown every time I got my oil changed...

    I would say you're good to drive back. The ECU has a failsafe in it if the OCV gets stuck open or closed. Not saying this is a good thing, but I drove with my bad OCV for over a month before having it replaced. Is your CEL intermittent?

    How much was it to replace? And the CEL was a steady constant light. I cleared it using my ultra gauge and hasn't been thrown again yet so we will see. Thanks for the help man

    this is where the 2 OCV valves are located. its one of the 2 orange circle. the code yours is throwing deals with the one on the passenger side. You don't have to remove your intake manifold/supercharger(if u have one) to get to these. the reason mine was removed was to change out the valve covers. anyways, just wanted to show you where they were in case u wanted to replace them yourself

    Awesome thanks for going out of your way for helping me out guys. It doesn't seem too complicated I may attempt to do it myself when I get back home. Do you have the link and part #? Again, thanks so much I was worried it would be something a lot worse

    Hahah no it doesn't idle high or rough and doesn't make any weird noises or anything. You wouldn't notice anything unusual if it weren't for the CEL
