    Hello, I have the Opel Astra H 2009 with the z16xer engine (1.6 gasoline). The error P0011 "Reference position of the inlet camshaft phase-matching mechanics - signal out of range (bank1)" flashed from the moment of purchase. In addition, there was a rattling noise in the engine, so I did a little research on the internet and found out that it was KZFR. After replacing, the rattling noise has stopped, but the error keeps repeating itself. I will add that the timing has been set on the locks and in my opinion it is OK, the engine runs smoothly. Has anyone had a similar problem? Can changing to a thicker oil help? (currently 5w30).

    Have you checked and washed the selenoids (solenoid valves) that control KZFR? Do they open fully, clean filters? What type do you have - old or newer ones, after modification? With older ones - the filters are removed because they block the oil flow. In addition, to check the condition of the wires and the pins of the plug.
    The oil is to be only as specified by the manufacturer (5W30) - a different oil may cause problems in the oil flow through the narrow channels of selenoid and KZFR (through the deposition of carbon deposits in them). In addition, change the oil more often (every 10-12 tkm) - there will be no problem with the timing and KZFR.
    According to TIS2000 - after repair, the current adaptive parameters of the programming menu must be reset (F5 key of the control unit, fault group 13).

    I do not have certainty about these solenoids, but I swapped them places because they are the same, and the error is still on the suction, so I think it will not be the fault of the solenoid valve, and how to recognize whether they are old or new? and what is this parameter reset? how to do it?

    Have you solved the problem? I have the same only with 1.8 140. Diesel engine diagnosis of variable phase wheel. Have been replaced. As before, there was an error p0014, after replacing I have p0011. I cleaned the valve, changed places, in the end I bought a new one and the error still pops up ... The engine works quietly, well, after a long time, it gives a characteristic scratching noise for 1 sec to 2 sec. but the engine only ticks. I don't know anymore, I don't want to replace half the car to eliminate this error.

    Have you dealt with this topic?

    In my Opel Zafira B 1.6 A16XER - replaced: 2 KZFR wheels, solenoid valve, intake shaft adjuster, all beautifully cleaned, blown and linden. The car only runs nicely on a cold engine until the first shutdown. After restarting, no power and the orange light with the key lights up. The computer shows error 0011. The mechanic says that you can still try to replace the intake camshaft position sensor. The hands drop.
    best regards

    Check the oil pressure at idle speed on a cold and warm engine (this is regarding error P0011) and valve clearances (valves on a hot engine can be supported) - hence the problems after restarting it. Valve clearance works well on a cold engine, by the way.

    Check the timing on the original locks, not the Chinese ones.

    The suction shaft position sensor was damaged. Error 0011 does not appear.

    Hello . The same problem in my Astra. I bought a new car in 2019 and installed STAG gas in an authorized company. And then this error appeared. My question is whether since June, that is, since the repair, the error has appeared with you?

    Hello . I am looking for information about the error p0011 in the Opel Astar H 16XER and I found your post. My story is identical to Panska. I bought an Opel in the Stag gas showroom and it started .. I drove 60,000 km and, in the meantime, a few times a week the engine, I bought the ELM 327 BLUETOOTH BT OBD2 INTERFACE and I go. I wonder if this error is related to the STAG mota. How did you deal with it ??
