CAUTION:

Perform this inspection only when DTC P0011 or P0014 is detected in self-diagnostic results of CONSULT and it is directed according to inspection procedure of EC section. Refer to EC-171, "Diagnosis Procedure" (P0011) or EC-174, "Diagnosis Procedure" (P0014).

  1. Check engine oil level. Refer to LU-7, "Inspection".
  2. Perform the following procedure so as to prevent the engine from being unintentionally started while checking.
  1. Release the fuel pressure. Refer to EC-143, "Work Procedure".
  2. Remove intake manifold. Refer to EM-27, "Exploded View".
  3. Disconnect ignition coil and injector harness connectors.
  4. Support the bottom surface of engine using a transmission jack, and then remove the engine mounting bracket (RH) and engine mounting insulator (RH). Refer to EM-82, "M/T : Exploded View".
  1. Remove intake or exhaust valve timing control solenoid valve. Refer to EM-48, "Exploded View".
  1. Clean the mounting area of intake or exhaust valve timing control solenoid valve, and then insert a clean shop cloth with no oil adhesion into the oil hole of the cylinder head.
  2. Install engine mounting insulator (RH) and engine mounting bracket (RH). (After the removal of intake or exhaust valve timing control solenoid valve and insertion of a shop cloth into the oil hole.)
  3. Perform cranking to check that engine oil comes out from the oil hole (mounting hole of intake or exhaust valve timing control solenoid valve) of cylinder head.

WARNING:

CAUTION:

  1. Perform the following inspection if engine oil does not come out from intake or exhaust valve timing control solenoid valve oil hole of the cylinder head.
  1. Remove components between intake or exhaust valve timing control solenoid valve and camshaft sprocket (INT) or (EXH), and then check each oil groove for clogging.
  1. Installation of remaining components is in the reverse order of removal.
