    My 2006 300 3.5L V6 is giving me the p0016 code. I have reset the code but it keeps coming back. In the morning when I first start the car aftter resetting the code I can drive for about 10 minutes or 5 miles with no code but then it pops back up and if I reset it comes back immediately. The car actually runs pretty good. No missing back-firing, or hesitation none of the symptoms that are accompanied by crankshaft position sensor or camshaft position sensor. Any ideas that might cause this code to throw. I don't wanna start buying parts that I don't need....Thanks

    Get to a better scanner (snapon modis) and run a cam crank relearn. If it won't take a relearn you need to start by changing the cam sensor. They have mild likelihood of going bad. Check the crank sensor for metal dust that will stick to the magnet and throw off your readings

    I would definitely replace the timing belt if haven't in a long time.
