|How to Fix the P0010 2005 SCION XB Code?

Start by checking the "Possible Causes" listed above. Visually inspect the related wiring harness and connectors. Check for damaged components and look for broken, bent, pushed out, or corroded connector's pins.

|P0010 2005 SCION XB code tech notes

If the engine oil is clean and the VVT and OCV circuits are OK, replaced the VVT to resolve the problem.

|What is the cost to diagnose the P0010 2005 SCION XB code?

Labor: 1.0

The cost to diagnose the P0010 2005 SCION XB code is 1.0 hour of labor. The auto repair's diagnosis time and labor rates vary by location, vehicle's make and model, and even your engine type. Most auto repair shops charge between $75 and $150 per hour.

|When is the P0010 2005 SCION XB code detected?

After the ECM sends the target duty cycle signal to the OCV, the ECM monitors the OCV current to establish an actual duty cycle. The ECM determines the existence of a malfunction and sets the DTC when the actual duty cycle ratio varies from the target duty cycle ratio.

|What are P0010 2005 SCION XB code possible symptoms?

  • Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
  • Lack/Loss of power
  • Engine rough idle

|What Does the P0010 2005 SCION XB Code Mean?

The Engine Control Module (ECM) controls the Oil Control Valve (OCV) to regulate the intake camshaft angle. As a result of the angle change, the engine timing is advance or retard. Optimizing engine timing will help the engine improve torque and fuel economy, and the exhaust emissions decrease under overall driving conditions. The Variable Valve Timing (VVT) system includes the Oil Control Valve (OCV) and VVT controller. The ECM detects the actual intake valve timing using signals from the camshaft and crankshaft position sensors, and performs feedback control.
