Replace solenoid if resistance is out of spec. Edited March 15, 2011 by Kevin M Got a call from the service department. Same shifting but nothing else noticable while driving. What are the common causes of code P0010? I replaced Camshaft Position Actuator Solenoid Valve about 5000 miles ago and the camshaft position sensor about 1000 miles ago. I am from Russia Edited September 15, 2011 by Policeman Hi.
This is because the camshaft actuators use hydraulic energy to move. It's V6 alloytech engine,Lumina Ls 2006 The code are P0010 and P0020 camshaft actuator open bank 1 and 2 Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk. Anyway a trip to the Zone later I came up with the P0011 code, which indicates camshaft intake position system performance. The wiring harness to the intake camshaft position sensor may also develop a poor connection. This is great for both power and fuel economy. This is because the cam profile will not allow it run a performance power curve when you need more power.
Having a proper diagnosis is always recommended before replacing components based upon the code alone. Camshaft Position Actuators change the lift of the camshaft up to 25 degrees. Otherwise, a digital voltage scope used to monitor the sensor signals will be required. How to article: Backyard Mechanic. Design specifics vary from system to system but in principle, the pressurized oil acts on an actuator to rotate the camshaft either clock-wise, or counter-clockwise relative to a base timing position to advance or retard the valve timing, depending on operating conditions such as varying loads on the engine, and throttle inputs from the driver. Could that sensor be related to my other issues? For about a week that was happening almost daily, once on the way to work and once on the way home. So, if you have low oil pressure or dirty oil, it can keep them from doing their job properly, and trigger P0011.
It could be a faulty actuator' a bad connector, or a broken or shorted wire between the camshaft actuator and the Engine Control Module. Possible Terrain P0010 Causes There are quite a few different things that can cause the P0010. Note: Follow the manufacturer's recommended pinpoint test to narrow down the problem, since each engine may be tested differently and possible engine internal damage may be done if tests are not performed in accordance with a correct procedure. When the camshaft timing will not return to a less aggressive profile after heavy engine load, P0014 will be thrown. While this is a more challenging trouble code to diagnose, it is possible to do at home. It is common to remove the solenoid which the code indicates to inspect the screen filter for sludge and manually activate it with a test probe.
I have found part of my cam position sensor: 12585545 I will try to change this sensor, and then we will see result. On higher mileage vehicles, I usually suspect engine oil sludge, the filter screen on the solenoid clogged, or the solenoid not working. P0010 is properly diagnosed with an advanced scan tool capable of factory sensor readings and codes not just one from your local auto parts store to start. Due to emissions and performance standards, manufacturers have installed systems to increase the engine valve lift under certain conditions based upon load and performance. The wiring harness to the intake camshaft position sensor may also develop a poor connection.
I'm beginning to think I have some electrical gremlins. So, if you have low oil pressure or dirty oil, it can keep them from doing their job properly, and trigger P0010. YourMechanic offers certified mobile mechanics who will come to your home or office to diagnose and repair your vehicle. The engine will idle normal. Need help with a P0010 code? It s fine while accelerating and driving but when I slow down to a crawl or stop, it throws the code. Whether it could affect occurrence of error P0011? Common mistakes when diagnosing the P0013 code? What repairs can fix the P0010 code? Certainly, this is not the most likely cause, but it is certainly possible. What causes the P0010 code? Code P0010 relates to the A, or Inlet camshaft on Bank 1, which is the set of cylinders on one side of an engine that contains cylinder 1.
Please ask your dealer if you wish to know how much time will be needed to schedule, process, and repair your vehicle. Always make sure that you check everything else that you can before actually opening up an engine. How serious is the P0013 code? Do be aware that this code can be thrown when there are oil pressure issues, low oil, or dirty oil. Instructions for making this correction have been sent to your dealer. This service will be performed for you at no charge. This means that it has the same definition regardless of the make or model of the vehicle. The complete recall notice is accessible.
How does a mechanic diagnose the P0013 code? Your problem will probably be that the timing will be slightly out, due to wear stretch of the timing chain; this will all be linked to the overall cold start issue and the timing position. The image below shows a typical oil flow control valve, with the solenoid and electrical connector making up the top part of the assembly. Note: The symptoms may change depending on the camshaft timing positions when the camshaft stopped advancing or retarding. What causes the P0013 code? Always make sure that you check everything else that you can before actually opening up an engine. Possible Terrain P0011 Causes There are quite a few different things that can cause the P0011. Clean, replace, or repair connector as required.
Okay, a little background maybe related. This allows for a more efficient cam profile at any speed. You need to diagnose the problem with the camshaft actuator circuit and repair it. The best news is he is getting everything covered under the power train warranty I think I found a new dealer. Additional comments for consideration regarding the P0010 code Engine timing between the crankshaft and camshaft s is critical to the performance and smoothness of the engine.
Maybe the solenoid itself is malfunctioning. Verify the P0010 code returns or the symptoms exists or determine if it is intermittent. With P0011, the camshaft actuator is leaving the timing too far advanced, or there is a system performance issue not working right. Jul 24, 2016 The code P0014 is for Camshaft Positon Sensor Actuator Bank 1. Note the fine wire mesh screens on the bottom part. What are the symptoms of code P0010? Get that timing checked, or push for the full fix for the cold start timing issue.
