Default camshaft bearing ledges - 05-15-2019, 08:12 PM

anybody here ever have to replace their cam gear ledges? car isn't building boost and stuttering low rpm, read the codes with MHD and got there 2DEC, 2DED, 2DEB, 30FF, 3100, 29E1, 2A82, 2A87, 29CC, 29D0, 29D1, 29D2.

i cleaned the vanos solenoids, and put them back, car pulled good for like 3 pulls then same thing. Ordered some amazon ones, same thing, used a friends solenoids, same thing.

what should i check/do next, boost solenoid?

What oil filter and oil? See this all the time and often is related to non oem oil filter or old oil.

For boost under target isn't that more of a boost system related issue? 30FF or 3100? Not sure on the other issues. And interesting to hear that oil quality, filter, and frequency of changes could be a factor.

I’m using the fcpeuro kit of liqui moly and mahle filter, although the very last time I used mobile 1.

So should I just do another oil first?
