This code is new to me: P003F “A” Camshaft Profile Actuator “A” Control Stuck on Bank 2.
Based on my research, Volvo calls it the Variable Valve Timing Solenoid or more commonly VVT. Asking if anyone has direct experience with it on the Volvo S80 or P3 cars? It started awhile ago accompanied with random/multiple cylinder misfires P0300. The solenoid allows more oil into the cylinders as the vehicle accelerates or is under heavy load. On inline 6-cylinder Volvos there are two next to the ignition coils: passenger side (Bank 1) and driver’s side (Bank 2).
When I got the first misfire errors, I changed the oil, replaced spark plugs and checked the coils. Cleared the codes, but they returned, so now I am focused on P003F code. Google found only one reference to an XC70, so it is not a very common issue for S80 or P3 models. The XC70 owner posted that he first replaced a Camshaft Impulse Sensor but that did not help. He then replaced the VVT Solenoid 36002689 and reported the problem fixed.
Tasca shows Volvo part 36002689 discontinued with no replacement?? FCP has one for $173 + $25 core charge and also a Volvo remanufactured part 31216281 for $115. I could also try to clean the existing one. Any advice would be appreciated. No access to VIDA/Dice at the moment.
