P1140 and Intake valve timing control position sensor

My 2002 Sentra has just under 100,000 kms on it, and a few days ago, the "service engine soon" warning popped up. I took it to a shop, and the error code was P1140.

After consulting the factory manual, it appears that the "Intake valve timing control position sensor" or "Intake valve timing control position solenoid" needs to be replaced. Is the aforementioned part reffered to by some other name, as i can't seem to find a part number for it? Most likely, i will not be getting the original Nissan part.

Also, any advice regarding the replacement would be appreciated. I have driving the car around a little bit in the meantime, and i haven't noticed any other problems.

Between, the mechanic at the shop wanted to replace the O2 sensors.

Made some progress towards solving the problem. More details here: http://x.nissanhelp.com/forums/sentr...on-sensor.html

As you can tell, it should be fixed soon, assuming all goes well.

I think this was a recall at one time. Ask your dealer.

Yes, you are right. There was a recall, but my VIN is not amongst the VINs of cars recalled.

Typical Nissan. My 02 was not on the recall for the loose butterfly screws but every one of mine was loose.
