P0013 and P0014
This forum has been a great help to me in the past and I am expecting great results this time. Thanks for reading.
2009 Cobalt LT, 2.2L, approx 160,000 miles
Wife came home and said the CEL was on. I put in the OBD2 bluetooth dongle and fired up my Torque app and it came up with a P0013 and P0014: "B" Camshaft Position - Timing Over-Advanced or System Performance (Bank 1)
P0013: "B" Camshaft Position Actuator Circuit (Bank 1)
Apparently, infrequent oil changes, or low oil or wrong oil can trigger these codes. I do regular 4,000 mile changes with Valvoline 5W30 Semi Synthetic High Mileage. Checked oil and it is good...actually still looks clean despite halfway through a change cycle. So, I am going to rule out oil being the problem.
The other more likely problem seems to be a bad part but I am unclear as to the name of it. I have seen Camshaft Postition Actuator or Variable Valve Timing Solenoid???
There is an intake and exhaust one and I believe it to be the Exhaust one.
Can someone clarify for me what part I would need to replace.
Also, I cleared the codes and my wife has driven the cars since with no return of the CEL to this point. It it returns and pops the same codes, I will replace the part necessary but I need to know exactly what the name of the part is and if possible a part number. AC-Delco or Dorman are both fine.
