    Default Engine fault:Repair required

    My Pug 308(2010) with 80k on the odo is giving the Engine Fault:repair required alarm.This usually happens during cold starts.If I do about half an hour drive restart the engine it does not come on.An OBD scan gave fault code as P0016 :Cam/Crankshaft Pos. Correlation sensor A-Bank 1.The engine runs smoothly with normal power and fuel consumption.Any thoughts what is triggering the fault given it is not affecting performance?Timing chain was replaced about 3 years ago.

    Does it need an oil change and/or has it had regular changes? I think the cam timing gizmos work off oil pressure and with cold oil combined with a bit of gunge it may be causing this issue so once the oil's warm it's not happening. I could be wrong of course. I'm sure our resident Pug tech will be along soon though.

    Agreed, check the camshaft timing. The code is saying that the camshaft position sensor is giving a result at odds with the crankshaft sensor. The camshaft is variably phased by an oil operated device on the chain wheel.

    Oil as mentioned above could be the culprit if a blockage affected the phasing.
