Emc Fault Code P1349

Recommended Posts

I have just bought a 2003 1.6VVTi with 66k on the clock. The eng module control light came on on the way home [20miles] and then went out the next day. I had arrnged to take it to the garage that had recently serviced it as they offered to read the fault. The car had been serviced in Oct and stood idle for 3 months until the sale.I believe the cleaned the trottle body although the revs do not seem to drop quickly when changing gear.

The fault code 1349 VVTi malfunction was reported with no action taken. They said that it could be a software problem.

I have inspected the Oil control valve filter ]clean] and checked the risitance [spec6.9-7.9 actual 7.4] WHERE NOW?

Has anyone experience of a sticky Oil control valve?

Is it posible to check its operation by connecting a Battery to it?

Should I just take it to the Toyota dealer?

I fear some fault with the mechanical timing control device on the front of the cam that would be stupid expensive?
