Also, was there an overheating problem before? A lot of time on your part! The camshaft actuator is an important and expensive part, but there are other, more expensive parts to the engine that can be damaged and you may not know about if the engine light is constantly on. Posted on Feb 18, 2015 Have no idea without testing to find the problem. You may find this information in your vehicle repair manual. I have a suspicion on either the cam shaft position sensor or one of its wiring. Each actuator is constructed with precision machined parts and includes new Viton oil seals for a leak free installation. I have to push it or wait until it cools down completely. When the intake side camshaft position actuator fails, it sets a code P0010 that stands for Bank one circuit malfunction.
If there's a sensor for it, try to troubleshoot the sensor. You can also set a code P0014 for the actuator valve over advancing the camshaft timing. Usually this points to bad ignition timing, but because of the previous lean condition vacuum leak , I'm wondering if there's too much carbon build up in the chambers. The problem is more likely to be in the circuit, between one of the sensors and the computer power or ground , a short. Clean, replace, or repair connector as required. Now I want you to keep in mind as I write this I am not mechanically inclined whatsoever!!! It uses this information to adjust the spark timing and the operation of the fuel injectors.
My truck had decided to throw the p1345 and p0014 codes after my wonderful husband added engine restorer found in wal-mart. The steel bolt screws into a soft aluminum threaded area. What Is Done during Camshaft Position Actuator Replacement? Unplug the connector and check for rust or contamination, like oil, that is interfering with good electrical contact. Make sure you need to have voltage signal with key on engine off test, otherwise, there are problems with the circuit. The screens on the solenoid get clogged , could be a wiring issue , without looking at the vehicle an doing some testing it's hard too say. Additional Cam Actuator Repair Tips On some of the YouTube videos I've seen the mechanic impresses us by using air tools or cordless screwdrivers to remove and reinstall the retaining bolts. My thinking is the a sensor is bad, either the cam or crank but i'm not an expert.
Starter system components like bad wires, dirty battery cables or a weak battery can interfere with the signal — power is not as it should be. Someone that has done it multiple times. What are the symptoms of code P0013? Although I'm a firm believer in only replacing failed components in this situation I had to adjust my thinking for the sake of my customers. April 2018 hear vibrating noice, car looses power and knocking noise. The mechanic will need to take off the actuator, inspect the area around it for any further damage, then replace it with a new part. Since the manufacturer uses two separate valves identifying and replacing the correct one becomes important. See what else we cover here on.
I have replaced the crankshaft sensor but with no luck. Also, don't forget to put a drop of oil around the rubber ring on the new one before inserting. I only had an oil change done in June it is now December and only 4,000 K since then. Note that on the intake side that this lock tab is a different color and easy to see. I used an old shirt. If you have a digital multimeter, you may want to check for incoming voltage and the signal. If the desired and actual cam phase angle error exceeds its.
Now its November and showing the same symptoms. Whenever i experience this hard start, the sound of the exhaust will sound like a lazy sound, not active like the normal one. Note the fine wire mesh screens on the bottom part. In the morning where temperature is cool the car starts quite well, but if i leave the car until 11:00 or 12:00 without starting it the car wont start until late in a day after the sun has set. Most of the time it is the solenoid.
This could apply to your particular model. It may take some time of driving miles before it relearns the best engine operating conditions for your vehicle. This other post can help you check the crank and camshaft sensors. There may be a pending code that can point you in the right direction. Waiting on the wiring harness then replacing both. Before all of this there was a few times that I had to get a jump randomly.
These enhancements include lower emission output through exhaust gas dilution of the intake charge in the combustion chamber, a broader engine torque range, and improved fuel economy. There could be a problem. The symptoms your engine may experience at this point can vary, depending on the type of sensor failure: for example, a problem in the circuit, the connector, the sensor itself, or a related component. Replace the solenoid if a direct power supply fails to activate the solenoid. I need to change it more often with just regular Full Synthetic and not Extended Performance 15k mile oil.
I ordered the actuator solenoid valve kit for a 2010 Chevy Cobalt with an intake actuator solenoid that was open circuit. Then it would cut off and hard start, code P0345. It took my wife and I roughly and hour to change put the intake and exhaust solenoids. However, what remains important is replacing the gray top intake actuator with the correct replacement part. We found the failure of both the exhaust and intake solenoids common.
