Took my car to the stealers today for an MOT and they failed it on exhaust omissions.
They said that they had done some diagnostics of the lamda probes and that had come back fine, which suggested that it was the cat at fault. They then said that for a further £160 they would diagnose whether the CAT was indeed at fault.
Didn't bother with that and took the car home plugged it into VAG COM and there is the following fault:
16396 - Bank 1 : Camshaft A (Intake): Advance Setpoint not Reached (Over-Retarded)
P0012 - 35 - 10 - - - Intermittent
Been doing a lot of searching on here and other forums to see what the problem is, and from reading other posts it seems like it is either vvt adjuster or oil pressure related.
All cars that had this fault seem to have bad idling/running issues which my car doesn't have which is confusing.
I take it this would also give me bad omissions?
Any help or clarity on this would be greatly appreciated. Cheers
