P0016 Diagnostic code

Hi all,
Just had the oil changed today by the dealer on my 2015 Jeep SRT after initial break-in. Saw that they put 5w-40 synthetic instead of 0w-40 synthetic. On my way home from dinner tonight, noticed engine was running slightly warmer than normal. Check engine light came on with diagnostic code P0016. Any ideas? Is it safe to drive it 15 miles to dealer tomorrow? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

Re: P0016 Diagnostic code

According to my code list, P0016 = Crankshaft Position - Camshaft Position Correlation (Bank 1 Sensor A). I do not know if it is safe to drive or not. Hopefully another member will be able to help you with that.

Re: P0016 Diagnostic code

Took it to the dealer and they ran diagnostics. They said every thing looked fine. Said motor looked like it was running fine, crank/cam angle was fine. They cleared the code and told me to drive it and see what happens. This afternoon the check engine light came back on with the same code. Could installing a oil catch can be what is throwing this code? This is becoming slightly frustrating. Thanks

Catch can wont do much for this i think. Its more for long term health of the engines. Did the dealer say why they put in 5w40 instead of the normal 0w40? You passed the break in period so you should be back to the normal oil it needs.

Re: P0016 Diagnostic code

Here is an interesting read abou that code. I am guessing the dealer has damaged somrthing during your service.
P0016 Crankshaft Camshaft Position Correlation DTC

Sleeps I already have the catch can installed and was wondering if this could be the cause of the diagnostic code. I installed the catch can the night before and had the oil changed the next day by the dealer and that same day the check engine light came on and gave that code. Was just wondering if having a catch can installed can cause a diagnostic code

Yes the dealer put in 5w-40 instead of 0w-40 because they said they didn't have 0w-40

O not at all. Its just a filter no way it could mess with the crank sensor. Tons of people have them here and never a bad thing to say about them.

Maybe the dealer did mess with something. If you got it after the service.

Hopefully it's just a bad sensor or something simple since today the dealer said the crank/cam looked ok before the cleared the code. Just frustrated to have the code com back again. Could the dealer using 5w-40 instead of 0w-40 cause this code? Thanks again

Re: P0016 Diagnostic code

Less than 1,000 miles and already having to leave it at the dealer. Check engine light back on with same code P0016 and engine shuts down and goes into some sort of limp/safe mode when trying to accelerate over 4k rpms. Not what I was expecting within the first month

I agree with ChrisA. I think they loosened or damaged the sensor wire harness while they were putting the wrong oil in it. Oil changes are usually performed by the least trained service rep. Maybe while loosening the oil filter he slipped and hit the wire harness. I can't believe it is anything internal to the engine. A good mechanic should be able to figure it out very quickly.

Re: P0016 Diagnostic code

i had that sensor go out on my truck. it should be on the outside the engine near the flywheel. its just a little magnetic sensor.

it did not affect the engine running, but made it progressively harder to start.
