Land Rover Evoque – Engine Problem With Timing Chain Sprocket

The Problem
This Land Rover customer visited our workshop with a 2013 Evoque with a Check Engine Light (CEL) on, and a load noise from the engine.

On inspection, our technician verified that the CEL was on, and carried out a visual assessment. Then using the diagnostic computer we checked and scanned for fault codes. We found the following codes, P052ACold start camshaft timing over advanced bank 1, P0011 – Intake camshaft position timing over advanced bank 1, P0341 – Camshaft position sensor A circuit/range performance bank 1.

Fault codes are only a starting point, we never use them for component replacement without additional testing and inspection. We also use the codes in conjunction with factory service bulletins, and a large database of common pattern failures…35 years of experience is pretty helpful too. 😉

2013 Range Rover Evoque Repair ManualWhat We Discovered
Following the test plan, our technician then removed the engine cover and found an excessive oil leak, and that the plastic valve cover was cracked as you can see. This is a very significant finding, much indicative of an internal engine failure.  As it was very possible something has broken in the engine timing system, the technician next removed the camshaft cover and external engine components and found a failure of the camshaft retaining pin.

Land Rover has a technical service bulletin (TSB) about this very matter, TSB LTB00916NAS1 (Download) for camshaft keeper coming loose. Fortunately, the client had brought the car in an early stage, and our technician identified and localized the fault before it led to a catastrophic engine failure.

How It Works

Like many newer cars, Land Rover uses a system called “Variable Valve Timing” (VVT) in which the engine valve timing is controlled dynamically via engine oil pressure and electric solenoid valves. The aim is to improve volumetric efficiency, decrease NOx emissions, and decrease pumping losses. Today, there are two major types of variable valve timing: cam phasing and cam changing. With cam changing, the ECU selects a different cam profile based on engine load and speed, whereas, with cam phasing, an actuator rotates the camshaft, changing the phase angle.

There are dozens of ways to go about varying valve timing, lift, and duration control, Land Rover uses the solenoid valve method, controlled by the engine computer. These valves allow the oil to flow into a VVT gear on the end of each camshaft, allowing the engine timing to be varied to provide better performance and fuel economy. The system provided that the engine oil is kept clean and full, is generally very trouble-free.

2013 Range Rover Evoque Repair ManualHow It Fails
Because the cam sprocket needs to move for the VVT system to work, it must have a mechanical stop, so it does not over-rotate and for retention. It is this stop, pin, or keeper that fails, and creates the problem that we found. So with that in mind, the most common cause of the Land Rover VVT or VCT sprocket failure is the failure of the retaining pin on the intake camshaft, what Land Rover calls the “VCT Stopper”.

Land Rover’s exact phrase for the problem is “This may be caused by the ‘stopper’ in the intake camshaft Variable Cam Timing (VCT) actuator becoming detached, leading to the VCT actuator not functioning.” Which is a polite way of saying something really bad just happened.

Usually, the Land Rover VVT or VCT sprocket failure comes on as the vehicle gets on in miles, our experience and industry reports seem to typically indicate at 60,000 to 80,000 miles. This seems to be some defect in design or manufacturing, resistance from advancing and retarding the camshaft position becomes too much, causing the weakest part, the pin to break.

2013 Range Rover Evoque Repair ManualThe Proper Repair
The only true and “permanent repair” is to replace the intake VCT sprocket, timing chain, and all guides with the newer, and updated design, while properly cleaning and servicing the cylinder head. Any “repairs” are usually very short-lasting and risk having failed parts fall into your engine, or worse, a catastrophic engine failure, resulting in very expensive engine damage and quite possibly ruining your engine. It’s just not worth the risk, do it right the first time, and it’s good to go.

At our workshop, we’re all about providing our customers not only Great Service but also Value. We understand that “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” (my mom would be proud I remembered that.), in other words, preventing, or catching problems like these brake lines early, can save you more than just money.

Knowing, not just “doing”, that’s the Dardoor way.

    I actually bought this on dardoor because I could not find it at any local or online store. I own several of these manuals for some of the other model cars I own and they are full of helpful information. Sure, you can trust the people on YouTube if you want to but I’ve been referring to the information on the pages of these manuals since before there was even internet. I trust them.

    These things are a must when working on your vehicles. If you are mechanically inclined and have one of these manuals coupled with some youtube videos and you should be able to do just about every possible repair on your vehicle. Thats the reason I buy one for every new vehicle I acquire.

    This is the typical Dardoor repair OEM manual in that it tells and shows you a lot but not everything.
    Still good to have when you need it, It was worth the $19 bucks.

    Bought one for my 2013 evoque. unfortunately, with new cars built to last seven to nine years, and with the equivalent of two miles of wiring by using CANBUS, the automotive DIYer is becoming a dying breed.
    Too many sections are for ‘pro”
