Scion uses the Toyota Information System database for factory service information. This includes diagnostic troubleshooting guides as well as technical specifications. Our tooling allows us to interact with Scion vehicles and monitor the onboard systems so that we can verify the vehicle is operating as desired. If we notice any abnormalities, we can make the adjustments or repairs necessary to return the vehicle to "fresh-off-the-line" performance.


A common issue that affects the FR-S is the clearance on the camshaft position sensor. This is referenced in the following technical service bulletin: S-SB-033-14. From the factory, the design for the placement of the camshaft position sensor doesn't allow enough adjustment for the aging of the engine. The sensor can move too close and cause faulty readings which in turn cause misfires. Several trouble codes are related to this issue. The fix is to remove the camshaft position sensor and reinstall with .1 mm shims until the reading becomes accurate. This is a frustrating and laborious procedure but you can rely on Discovery Automotive to isolate and solve this issue. We have the correct tooling to identify and adjust the cam sensor position.
