P0013 P0014?? Is It Just the Exhaust Actuator??

Just wondering if both codes are for the exhaust actuator. Or is it called the Camshaft Position Actuator Solenoid Valve? Thanks.

I get that code sometimes as well.. my father in law said my timing belt needed to be replaced... but i found out yesterday we have a chain.. so what would be a good thing to do?

Thank you!

These engines with cam actuators are designed to run on synthetic oil. Synthetic oil doesn't sludge up like dyno oil. If you stretch your oil change intervals more than 3000 miles with dyno oil it will sludge and gather inside the actuators. Only solution then is to change the actuator. Simple one bolt one connector procedure. Remember the oil monitor is calibrated for synthetic so don't follow the oil monitor if you use conventional oils.
