CONDITION:

Check engine light illuminated following an oil change; DTC P0015 (“B” Camshaft Position – Timing Over-Retarded Bank 1) was retrieved. Vehicle equipped with a 2GR-FE engine.

CAUSE:

Inspection of the oil filter revealed an incorrect filter cartridge had been used and was crushed during installation. This may have caused a restriction that affected oil pressure controlling the variable valve timing system.

CORRECTION:

The correct oil filter cartridge was installed, the codes were cleared and a road test was performed. Problem solved.

*May also be seen in other models which share the same engine and/or filter type (e.g. 2005 Avalon)
