SOURCE: p0014 engine code

THE CAM SHAFT ACTUATOR IS LOCATED IN THE CYLINDER HEAD ON THE FRONT RIGHT HAND SIDE JUST ABOVE THE POWER STEERING PUMP. AFTER YOU REMOVE THE ACTUATOR CHECK TO SEE IF ANY OF THE SCREENS ARE DAMAGED OR MISSING. IF SO REPLACE THE ACTUATOR. ALSO CHECK THE CRANKSHAFT END PLAY. IT SHOULD BE BETWEEN 0.0044" - 0.0153". if excessive crankshaft end play is causing this concern, it will be obviously out of specification by as much as.050" or more when a pry bar is used to move the crankshaft back and forth. IF THIS IS THE CASE AN ENGINE REPLACEMENT IS RECOMMENDED DUE TO THE AMOUNT OF DEBRIS IN THE ENGINE. IF NO EXCESSIVE CRANKSHAFT MOVEMENT NOTICED REPLACE THE CAM ACTUATOR. IT WILL ALSO BE NECESSARY TO DO AN OIL CHANGE.

SOURCE: where is the intake camshaft position actuator

if it is a V-6 engine look on the belt side of the motor. You will see a black cover with a connector right behind the serpentine belt about in the middle of the engine.

if its a 4 cylinder there will be two of them located under the engine cover and mounted on top of the valve cover towards the front of the engine.

SOURCE: I HAVE p0010 code Problem.CAMSHAFT

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 get a code of P0011,canshaft timming was advanced beyond limits,for a predetermind period of time.could you tell me how to solve this problem?


You didn't state year, make, model, or engine, but this DTC is normally associated with vehicles with variable valve timing. There are several possible causes including the camshaft(s) actually being out of time due to a slipped timing belt/chain, the variable valve timing actuator(s) not working properly, bad wiring or connectors to the vvt actuators, and ECM problems. Your best bet is to have it evaluated by a qualified shop. Your worst bet is to just start replacing components and hope you eventually get the right one.

How to change a csmshsft sensor on a 2008 cadillac srx


Before you replace a part you may or may not need . Why ? What code ? Does the vehicle run ? There has been a lot of confusion on these vehicles with variable valve timing , mixing up cam sensors with camshaft actuators
DTC P0008: Engine Position System Performance Bank 1

DTC P0009: Engine Position System Performance Bank 2
The presence of DTCs P0008 and P0009 along with P0016, P0017, P0018, and P0019 indicates a possible condition with the primary timing chain and the alignment between both intermediate sprockets and the crankshaft. Or, the crankshaft reluctor wheel has moved and is no longer referenced to top dead center (TDC).


?€¢
Observe the scan tool CMP Desired, Actual, and Angle Variance parameters before a DTC sets. This may help to isolate whether a condition is specific to one camshaft, one bank, or caused by a condition with the primary crankshaft timing.

I'm sorry but when dealing with these problems your best bet is to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop , I have never see a DIY'ER correct the problem with these , an in the end always end up taking it to the dealer .

Got code P0026, replaced oil control valve and the solenoid next to it. still the code came back


answer courtesy of obd-codes.com Potential causes of a P0026 diagnostic trouble code may include: Low engine oil level or contaminated oil Clogged oil system Malfunctioning control solenoid Malfunctioning camshaft actuator Timing chain/belt loose or incorrectly adjusted Malfunctioning ECM/PCM Possible Solutions Engine oil - Check the engine oil level to make sure engine oil capacity is sufficient. Since the actuators work on oil pressure, the proper amount of oil is critical to ensure proper operation of the VVT system. Dirty or contaminated fluid may cause buildup which can lead to failure of the control solenoid or the camshaft actuator. Control solenoid - The control solenoid for the camshaft can be checked for continuity using a Digital volt/ohm meter (DVOM) using the ohms function, by unplugging the solenoid wiring harness connector and checking the resistance of the solenoid with the (+) and (-) leads of the DVOM on each terminal. Ensure the internal resistance is within manufacturers specifications if available. If resistance is within specifications, remove the control solenoid to verify it is not contaminated, or if there is damage to the sealing O rings to cause a loss of oil pressure. Camshaft actuator - The camshaft actuator is a mechanical device controlled by internal spring pressure and adjusted by oil supplied by the control solenoid. When no oil pressure is supplied, it will default to a "safe" position. Refer to the manufacturers suggested procedure to remove the camshaft actuator from the engine's camshaft to ensure no leaks are present that would cause a loss of oil pressure to and from the actuator's hydraulic supply/return feed lines or within the actuator itself. Check timing chain/belt and components to ensure they are in proper working order and installed in the correct position on the camshaft gear. ECM/PCM - The ECM/PCM commands the control solenoid using a Pulse width modulated signal (PWM) to regulate the amount of on/off time, resulting in a control of the pressure used to move the camshaft actuator. A graphing multimeter or oscilloscope tool is required to view the PWM signal to ensure proper operation of the ECM/PCM. To check the PWM signal, the positive (+) lead is tapped into the ground side of the control solenoid ( if supplied by constant voltage, ground controlled ) or the powered side of the control solenoid (if permanently grounded, positive control ) and the negative (-) lead is attached to a good known ground. If the PWM signal is not consistent with changes in engine RPM, there may be a problem with the ECM/PCM

P0022 for 2004 toyota sienna van


P0022 Toyota - Camshaft Position \'A\' Timing Over-Retarded Bank 2



























Possible causes




- Dirty Oil

- Faulty variable valve timing (VVT)

- Faulty oil control valve (OCV)

- Variable Valve Timing (VVT) harness is open or shorted

- Oil Control Valve (OCV) circuit is open or shorted

- Damaged Engine Control Module (ECM)




Tech notes



If the engine oil is clean and the VVT and OCV circuits are OK, replaced the VVT to resolve the problem.





When is the code detected?


After the ECM sends the target duty cycle signal to the OCV, the ECM monitors the OCV current to establish an actual duty cycle. The ECM determines the existence of a malfunction and sets the DTC when the actual duty cycle ratio varies from the target duty cycle ratio.


Possible symptoms


- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)

- Lack/Loss of power

- Engine rough idle


P0022 Toyota Description


The Engine Control Module (ECM) controls the Oil Control Valve (OCV) to regulate the intake camshaft angle. As a result of the angle change, the engine timing is advance or retard. Optimizing engine timing will help the engine improve torque and fuel economy, and the exhaust emissions decrease under overall driving conditions. The Variable Valve Timing (VVT) system includes the Oil Control Valve (OCV) and VVT controller. The ECM detects the actual intake valve timing using signals from the camshaft and crankshaft position sensors, and performs feedback control.

Variable cam timing


should not have had pressure not running...test by unplugging tyhe vvt selonoid when running.it should cause a miss fire @ 2000 rpm if no change the vvt control selonoid is faulty. verify that the hub on the cam shaft is lined properly with cam sprocket.look at back side of hub there is a "tab" that should be set into a "notch" of the sprocket.also on side of cyl head should be a small plate or plug container an oil strainer pre-vvt control.it needs to be clean and not clogged with carbon deposits. good luck. farfanugin

2001 volvo s40 trouble code P0015


This is a common issue particularly with vehicles that have had some neglect to the oil change routine. The VVT solenoid on the top of the valve cover gets clogged with thickened or sludged oil.

Replace the VVT solenoid and gasket with a new unit and clear the codes.
