Hi
my car met with a small accident, insurer fixed everything, but I told them that the car was beyond sluggish, no power out of first(and engine light came on directly after). They said they fixed the body and radiator and what else that was damaged but the engine light and sluggishness was incidental. I took it an idenpedant repairer, said engine seemed fine checked all of the oils, ran a code check, and only found p0012, cam shaft timing, this is brought in by oils but the oils are good. Lost for answers,
Cheers

Hi Lankanflyer10.98 👋

As Steve suggests one of the reasons could be engine oil...
A quick 'google' gave this....

Causes of the P0012 Code
There are several reasons the P0012 code can occur. Some of them are easier to deal with than others, so it’s important to perform a complete inspection to figure out what’s going on, thereby resolving the fault and the initial cause.

Here are some of the most common causes:

Hope this is of some help.....Keep us updated (y)

Well, there were a number of helpful posts put up to assist Lankanflyer but sadly no response from them :( sad really when members take valuable time to impart knowledge to a new member asking a question but the new member fails to give the courtesy of a reply.

The adage of Manners maketh man seems to be rarely put into use in recent times.
