C0601 Dkw Sonderklasse is triggered when the bank 1 camshaft position sensor doesn't match the signal from the crankshaft position sensor. Other symptoms that may indicate this problem are when the Check Engine Light illuminates and when there is a visible lack of engine power.
Possible Causes :
If the engine displays a miss and there wasn't a code, determine which cylinder is misfiring. If the exhaust manifold is visible, spay or pour a small amount of water on each cylinder exhaust port. Water will evaporate immediately on good cylinders and slowly on the missing cylinder. If this can't be accomplished pull the plugs and check the condition. With the valve disconnected, the red voltmeter lead should be attached to the IMRC valve power wire and the black voltmeter lead connected to ground. If you find a related TSB, the information will often help in diagnosing the code in question as TSBs are crested from many thousands of repairs.
