Code P0010 According to advance auto, this is a camshaft sensor or something. Can you tell me what this code really means?

    I have a Pontiac G6 2006 and my car seems to ride smooth then suddenly when I put my car in reverse it makes a LOUD clunk sound and then it begins to shift hard on every gear. It feels like its slamming in there as if someone was hitting me on the rear. It jerks when it shifts then the Engine Light comes on stating the P0010. Is this a symptom of the camshaft sensor?? I already had the wiring changed and the very next day it started the same exact thing. Check engine light and riding rough on every gear. and the loud clunk sound when I put it into reverse or even in drive. Please help! The dealers don't seem to know either!!!

    I have the same issue as the rest of the folks in here. Howoever, I did replace the camshaft sensor and it still did the same thing. A mechanic told my that the car has two camshaft sensors one is at the intake and the other is at the exuast side of the car. But I don't if they would both have the same symprtoms, you know, the hard changing of the gears. I don't know if the camshaft itself may be damaged, but Geez the car is only freakin 3 years old. Come on GM!

Had the same issue with 2006 G6 GTP. Come to find out the issue was not the cam shaft position sensor. The factory had routed the wiring harness in between the intake and power steering pump. Over time it rubbed through the sheathing and exposed the bare wire which was causing it to ground out. Fixed and moved the wires and all is good now. Seems to be a common issue with these cars. Just move the wires and it will never happen again!

The sensor or the circuit has a malfunction. It's a small sensor on the cylinder head that tells the computer where the cam is at. (It's important information) It's not an expensive part and easy to replace on most engines. If it's in the wiring that's a more difficult issue if it's not obvious damage.

Camshaft sensor in 2009 hhr


You should probably take the car to a reliable shop or the dealer for that problem because those codes pertain to the intake and exhaust camshaft position actuator valves - not the sensor itself. It's more than just simply replacing the sensor for that problem.

What can i do to fix p0420 & p0430 code.. 2005 ford expedition 5.4 ,,,, can you please tell me where is located p0010 code, A camshaft position actuator circuit/open bank 1... Same truck .. Thank you


p0420 and p0430 both indicate a clogged catalytic converter. the vehicle's control module has detected that the three-way catalytic converter is not working properly (is not as efficient as the factory is expecting). Replacing the oxygen (O2) sensors may sometimes fix the code, but in most cases the catalytic convert needs to be replaced to fix the problem. The p0010 indicates camshaft sensor. The camshaft sensor may be the main problem, as it will affect your timing and fuel/air ratio, which in turn can effect what your Oxygen sensors detect, throwing the p0420 and p0430.

Make sure your car is timed correctly by the timing chain/belt, reset light, then if it dont' solve the problem, change oxygen sensors, if those don't help, catalytic converter is clogged.

Where is located thecam sensor on a jetta 1.8L


A P0010 code refers to the VVT (variable valve timing) or VCT (variable camshaft timing) components and the car's PCM (powertrain control module). That consists of an oil control valve (OCV), also called a solenoid valve and other components. Basically the check engine light and associated P0010 trouble code means that the voltage in the circuit has fallen below a set limit for a specific amount of time (varies by make/model/engine).

Carefully inspect the Bank 1 VVT/VCT system circuit wiring and connectors, repair as required
With a warm engine, test the operation of the OCV, replace/repair as needed.

The P0010 means "A" camshaft position actuator circuit(bank1)
p0456 means evaporative emission control system leak detected (very small leak)
p0130 means O2 sensor circuit (bank 1 sensor 1)
p0700 means transmission control system (MIL request)

I HAVE p0010 code Problem.CAMSHAFT POSITION ACTUATOR CIRCUIT


P0010 - "A" Camshaft Position Actuator Circuit (Bank 1)

A P0010 code refers to the VVT (variable valve timing) or VCT (variable camshaft timing) components and the car's PCM (powertrain control module). That consists of an oil control valve (OCV), also called a solenoid valve and other components. Basically the check engine light and associated P0010 trouble code means that the voltage in the circuit has fallen below a set limit for a specific amount of time (varies by make/model/engine).

Symptoms may include:
* Check Engine Light illuminated (Malfunction Indicator Lamp)
* Rough running
* other symptoms may also be present

Causes: A code P0010 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
* Faulty oil control valve (OCV)
* Open or short in the VVT/VCT circuit
* Open or short in the OCV / solenoid valve
* Damaged computer (PCM)

Possible Solutions: Some recommended troubleshooting and repair steps are:
* Carefully inspect the Bank 1 VVT/VCT system circuit wiring and connectors, repair as required
* With a warm engine, test the operation of the OCV, replace/repair as needed


Hope this helps to solve it (remember to rate this answer).

I think your sensors are pattern parts and the readings /resistances are not the same as the original parts ,try some bosch units is my first suggestion ,
