P0014 Code: Stretched chain? Dodgy Sensor?
I had the engine warning light come on last week and I've confirmed P0013 and P0014 error codes. I cleared them last night and the P0014 has come back this morning so there's definitely an issue. (She's an 07 plate 2.2JTS with 49k on the clock by the way)
I've been reading up on it for the past few hours and it seems it's either a stretched chain, dodgy solenoid or dodgy sensor. Obviously I'd prefer if it was one of the latter two!
I've used multiecuscan to check the intake/exhaust desired and actual values - they're close on both (see attached) so I think I can rule out the solenoids.
Is there a way to check the sensor? Or a way to confirm it's definitely the chain? Please bear in mind I'm a complete mechanical noob!
EDIT: I've not noticed a drop in power or rough idling, so I'm still keeping my fingers crossed. However, although I've changed my oil every 8000 miles (twice in the 2yrs I've owned her), I know the previous owner only followed the Alfa 18k service intervals....
