Question about 2006 Pontiac G6

Open Question

Over the past couple of months my 2006 Pontiac G6 has been shifting hard. It does not do this everyday and it seems to do so more once the car is warmed up. Now we have replaced the crankshaft position sensor and this did not help. It has 114000 miles on it.We had it scanned and it is bringing up the code p0014 which is the camshaft position sensor. Has anyone had this problem and fixed it by replacing the sensor or is it much more complicated than that?

SOURCE: I have a 06 pontiac g6 and have the code pOP0011

Has to do with valve timing. Check out this thread, http://townhall-talk.edmunds.com/direct/view/.f0f642e/94

Also this is for Toyota, but a good description of the problem area. http://www.ncttora.com/fsm/04-06-Tundra/techinfo.toyota.com/ileaf/06toyrm/06toypdf/06rmsrc/06tundra/di/eg2uzfe/cip00111.pdf

SOURCE: I have Pontiac G6 2006, I have a code P0014,

You dont say what engine you have so I ASSUME its the 4 cylinder??? I dont know what your car needs because I dont know what has been checked, but even the wrong viscosity engine oil or low oil level can cause this code. Or it could be a cam sensor problem. I would have a professional repair shop check it out and recommend repairs.

I think I know why you are having trouble understanding this. Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P0014 is NOT a "cam position sensor" code. It is an "Exhaust Camshaft Actuator" code...BIG DIFFERENCE! When the exhaust cam actuator is malfunctioning, it causes your exhaust cam to be out of time. This can cause ALL KINDS of drive-ability problems!

The Camshaft Position (CMP) Actuator is attached to the camshaft and is hydraulically operated in order to change the camshaft position relative to the position of the Crankshaft Position (CKP). The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) controls the camshaft timing by sending a pulse to the Camshaft Actuator Solenoid. The soleniod controls the flow of engine oil pressure to the camshaft actuator. By this method the PCM can change the camshaft timing by up to 25 degrees.

DTC P0014 sets when:
(A) The PCM has enabled the CMP actuator.
(B) The difference between the desired CMP angle and the actual CMP angle is greater than 6 degrees
(C) The CMP actuator is steady for 3 seconds
(D) The condition is present for 13.5 seconds

This code can be caused by several diferent things including the wrong viscosity engine oil, PCM failure, Cam Actuator Solenoid failure, faulty Cam Actuator circuits, and a few others.

The transmission hard-shift can be caused by this or it may be a completely separate problem. There are several Technical Service Bulletins (TSBs) for your transmission having a hard shift problem. One of them (TSB 04-07-30-013B) even states that a hard shift can be caused by contamination of the Mass Airflow Sensor (MAF)

I would recommend scanning ALL of your modules (PCM, ABS, BCM, IPC, AIR BAG, etc.) to see if there are any communications faults recorded or any other faults that may have any relation to your problem such as power loss, or ground faults in one or more of the circuits so a COMPLETE diagnosis can be achieved.

There are many reasons for the light to come on example: tire pressure not same in all tires, tires of diffrent size, ABS sensor wire loose or cracked. The best thing is to retrive the code which will tell you exactely what and which VSS vehicle speed sensor is failing.

Car shifts


Hi I am Vortash sounds like Torque slip check your fluid levels in the transmission. Rpm will rise if there is weak drive then as the vehicle reaches change speed it will snatch because the rpm is high .. if your levels are ok you may need to get your Torque converter checked out .. hope this helps regards Vortash
