Started throwing a code indicating the timing was out of spec. "DTC P0341: CMP Sensor A and CKP Sensor Incorrect Phase Detected" The blanket fix is to replace the VTC oil control solenoid, VTC actuator, cam chain and auto tensioner. I've always changed the oil on time with synthetic, including the filter everytime. I believe this defect is indicative of a larger quality issue in these engines. There is a TSB related to this even though it wasn't possible to prove it was the cause. A timing chain should not need to be replaced at the same frequency of a timing BELT.

We couldn't remove the key. They said there is an electric interlock that keeps you from removing key while driving. If we wanted that replaced it would be $249, or we could drive as is. We had them unplug it. Engine maintenance light on dash came on. Manual says it may be fuel cap. So today I bought a new cap. Time will tell if it fixed it.
