Thanks so much for any help.
p0016 is crankshaft/camshaft misalignment
Check both the crankshaft and camshaft position sensor connectors and wiring first. Either CKP(Crankshaft position sensor) or the CMP(camshaft position sensor) could be on its way out which would cause a misfire.
The CMP is located to the right side of the timing chain cover below the generator.
The CKP is located on the right rear side of the engine block.
