    Both P0011 and P1391 codes

    Hey finally flushed my engine today. The P0011 Cleared for now, waiting to be happy about it. The P1391 has persisted. Is there anything I can do, other than buying a 3rd sensor and giving that a whirl? I will do that, if need be, but perhaps there's a diagnostic technique to see if there could...

    I drive a 2004 Vw gti vr6. It has 235k and I recently had the timing chains done, along with cam sensors. My mechanic is currently stumped. I'm getting P0011 and P1391. Re-replaced the sensors and timing chains have been triple checked. Car has no problems with starting or stalling. I feel like...
