    Camshaft chain tensioner problem?

    Hello,

    I replaced the camshaft chain tensioner, with a new one, 3weeks ago, because it was rattling and leaking oil.
    A couple of days ago I scanned my car for errors and I got this error:
    "16396/P0012/000018 - Bank 1: Camshaft A (Intake): Advance Setpoint not Reached (Over-Retarded) - Intermittent ". I deleted it and checked yesterday if it reappeared... it did, but the "intermittent" is missing now.
    Before replacing the tensioner I had no errors and the "check engine" light has not come on yet.

    Any idea where the problem could be? Does the ECU need some time to "learn" the new tensioner?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated

    Forgot: Car is Audi A3 1.8T AUM

    Did you replace it with an OE one or one of the cheap ebay jobbers?
