P0019 - Crankshaft Position Camshaft Position Correlation Bank 2 Sensor B

About Trouble Code P0019

Trouble Code P0019 surfaces when the signals between the crankshaft sensor and the Variable Valve Timing Position Sensor B for the bank 2 exhaust camshaft do not correspond. These sensors help with the powertrain control module or the initiation module control ignition and timing.

Symptoms of Trouble Code P0019

The check engine light will illuminate, as soon as a problem is detected. When being driven the vehicle may hesitate upon acceleration and it may run roughly. Fuel economy will diminish and depending on the failure, it may drive erratically.

Causes of Trouble Code P0019

If the Variable Valve Timing is out of position from what the engine’s computer correlates it should be with the crankshaft you will have trouble code P0019. Also, if the oil control valve is stuck in the open or closed position you will see this code. Two other reasons it may come up are, if the oil pressure to the Variable Valve Timing Sensor has blocked passages to the camshaft or the camshaft gear phaser is stuck either open or closed.

How to Fix Trouble Code P0019

Clear the trouble code and take the vehicle for a drive to validate the code. You will want to check the camshaft sensor for bank 2 and repair any damaged or corroded wiring and connections to the camshaft sensor. You may need to replace timing ears, chain, and guides for both engine banks. Double check the oil and filter for proper viscosity. Finally, check the engine’s computer for damage.
