Firstly, Im new to the forum since and hoping to get some help.
The car (2009 RRS 5.0 Supercharged) cut out whilst accelerating. No bang, pop or anything. It just died - Engine and battery light on.
Managed to coast as far as I could to the side of the road: A slip road on a blind corner in the dark, dressed in all black, black car and 2 small kids in the freezing cold.
I quickly inspected it this morning at the yard it was recovered to. No fluid leaks. No hole in the block (assuming since no fluid escape). I attached a jump-pack but it just clicks on the start button and seems not to be turning over - but possibly could be that the battery is just too dead (trying to remain optimistic!).
My handheld scanner shows the following codes:
- P0340 Camshaft Position Sensor "A" Circuit (Bank 1 or Single Sensor)
- P0345 Camshaft Position Sensor "B" Circuit (Bank 2 )
I've not cleared the codes as will wait for a plug in on a snap on diagnostic machine before doing so.
I'm no expert, but to me it doesn't look good that both banks are picking up Camshaft Position sensors - so am thinking possibly Timing Chain Failure
The car was driving perfectly beforehand, although did notice a *very slight* surge when driving (almost hunting). However doubt it's related to the break down?
Any help /advice would be greatly appreciated.
