Vct without oil pressure switch


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, this will be a long one! I recently swapped engines in my turbo territory. We left the loom on the inlet manifold as we removed it. There is no damage as far as I can see. New engine has gone in and runs like a champ. Except I'm getting very odd codes. Code P0520 (oil pressure switch/circut fault) and P0196 (oil temperature sensor out of range)


We have tested the engine with a mechanical gauge and it has good pressure. Have replaced the pressure sensor as a precaution. No change. So I was wonder if I turned off the codes would the VCT still work as the ecu has no reference as to pressure or temp.


Cheers, Tyler.
