    CEL on please help codes (P1613, P1250, P1338, P1136)

    I have 1.8T 4 cylinder and had a CEL coming and going for the past year or so. I haven’t paid much attention to it (I was little idiotic and out of cash to pay for repairs) until recently where the CEL stayed on for all the time.

    Now I went to Auto zone to do a scan and found four codes on it. P1613, P1250, P1338, P1136. I researched a little bit on this site and found that P1136 (is a vacuum hoses leak). I saw a hose coming out of my power steering tank that is leaking a bit and I think it may be a problem (Correct me if I am wrong)

    P1338 – Found that this may be a problem with cam shaft position sensor. If some body has a DIY info on this, please guide me to it.

    P1250 – I guess this is because of poor maintenance 

    P1613 – Not sure what this is? Still researching (does any body know about this??)

    If experts here can suggest if I am on right track that would be lot of help.

    Thanks in advance

    Sounds like you may have electrical issues.
    P1250 means low fuel. Never seen that before..

    How many miles on the car and has the timing belt ever been changed? You don't want to find out the cam sensor is on because the timing belt has skipped.

    The P1136 may be a vacuum leak, not a power steering leak. It may also be a bad MAF.

    Not sure about the P1613, maybe the light has been on so long it set it's own code!

    Thanks for the reply. I have 110000 miles on the car. Timing belt was not changed any time recently. I was long ago, probably like 3 years ago.

    Do you think Timing belt has to be changed again or can this be a problem with Cam sensor it self?

    what is the worst case if cam sensor is on because the timing belt slipped?

    P1136 was cleared after I cleaned MAF sensor.

    P1338 got cleared after replacing the Cam position Sensor.

    P1250 and P1613 went away automatically, I didn't do anything for these but just had the engine check codes cleared but they never came back again. Its been more than a month.

    Good to hear. I would not worry about the timing belt yet as long as it had been changed in the last few years.
