    P0216 is the dreaded vp44 code of death correct? :flipthebird:

    From what I can find, I have two definitions of the 1693: Tachometer Circuit Low voltage and DTC detected in companion JTEC Mod. Any help deciphering those 2 definitions?

    P0216 code is a wear issue of the timing piston. Kind of like this... This one was nearly seized tight in the bore.
