Open Question

I have a 2004 Elantra GLS, The car is throwing a code P0010, I have changed the timing belt, water pump, Camshaft Position Sensor, Oil change and engine oil flush, I have pulled the ground cable to clear to codes but after about five miles of driving the code comes back. I am stumped here The code is "camshaft position actuator circuit failure bank A" Any idea would be greatly appreciated

Should just be a simple remove and replace. Engine off disconnect sensor, remove sensor, install new and good to go (assuming the sensor is the problem to what ever issue you were having).

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.

Probably hit or bumped it when changing belt. Probably loose connection, or out of position now. Do you know where it is? Look back where you were working, for piece pointing at camshaft area, and wires running to it.

P0017 and p0014 cobalt 2009


So, I hate to be the bearer of bad news but the codes are as follows.

P0017-Crankshaft Position - Camshaft Position Correlation Bank 1 Sensor 'B'
Possible causes
- Mechanical timing fault
- Blocked oil passage
- Low oil level
- Faulty Exhaust ('B') Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor
- Faulty Crankshaft Position (CKP) Sensor

P0014-Camshaft Position 'B' Timing Over-Advanced or System PerformancePossible causes
- Dirty Oil
- Low engine oil level
- Faulty Exhaust Camshaft Position Actuator Solenoid
- Exhaust Camshaft Position Actuator Solenoid harness is open or shorted
- Exhaust Camshaft Position Actuator Solenoid circuit poor electrical connection
- Faulty Engine Control Module (ECM)
Bank 1

So in short, you can try the oil change if its been a while, always a good practice, however the fact that its throwing both of these codes together, makes me heavily suspect that your car is experiencing the worst of the possible causes, all your symptoms are tell-tale signs of your cars timing being off, meaning a timing belt job is needed. I highly recommend trying your best not to drive that vehicle, if the timing belt grenades on you while your driving, it will cause catastrophic damage to your motor. I cannot stress to you enough to limit your driving. Timing belt jobs as a general rule of thumb, are anywhere from $700-$1000 depending on the shop, anything more and they are ripping you off. I hope this helps, Good Luck!

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.

Engine code P0010 canshaft position actuator circuit How would you begin to fix this problem thank you


The CVVT (Continuously Variable Valve Timing) system is installed to the chain sprocket of the exhaust camshaft. There is no variation in valve timing of the exhaust cam because the exhaust camshaft is driven by the timing belt. The timing of the intake cam is varied by the relative operation the CVVT vane to the housing. This system helps the engine decrease exhaust gases and increase engine power and fuel economy by changing the valve open/close timing of the intake camshaft.

The code you are getting can be caused by a mechanical problem with the CVVT or with an Engine Control Module (ECM) malfunction. The most common cause of a mechanical failure of this system is debris clogging the very small oil ports that control the position of the CVVT vane hub. Improper oil viscosity can affect this as well as deposits caused by not changing oil at the specified intervals.

There is a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) that deals with properly checking the CVVT system for mechanical/electrical failures. It is bulletin Number 09-EM-002.

Trace your steps, look for the sensor wire or plug that connects the sensor to your harness, you may have unplugged it, or damaged it.

Elantra Timing Belt off by one tooth


The timing system is very precise regarding fuel trims (fuel map). If the timing is, in fact, one tooth off, I'm surprised you haven't had a 'Check Engine' light with the DTC of P0016 - Crank position to Cam position Correlation and P0010 Camshaft Position-Timing Over-Advanced or System Performance(Bank 1). This condition will definitely affect fuel efficiency - no doubt about it. You can verify this by checking the ECU fuel trim data adaptives (OBDII scanner) - they should be near 100% (or zero '0.0'). You might also get a P0171 or P0172 - System too Lean or Rich.

2004 huyndai elentra code po 010


The CVVT (Continuously Variable Valve Timing) system is installed to the chain sprocket of the exhaust camshaft. There is no variation in valve timing of the exhaust cam because the exhaust camshaft is driven by the timing belt. The timing of the intake cam is varied by the relative operation the CVVT vane to the housing. This system helps the engine decrease exhaust gases and increase engine power and fuel economy by changing the valve open/close timing of the intake camshaft. The deviation of the camshaft position from the target point is evaluated during stable driving condition. The PCM accumulates this deviation for a certain period and sets DTC P0010 when the accumulated deviation is too high. The target camshaft position is a predetermineded value depending on engine speed and throttle angle communicated to the PCM. The MOST FREQUENT CAUSE is DIRTY OIL. The NEXT most frequent cause is restriction/obstruction of OIL FLOW to the CVVT unit (oil control valve supplies this). Remove this valve & inspect it for aluminium flashing (bits of metal which might be interferring with the valve's operation). We use Z-MAX treatment to solve this problem at our service center (after changing oil & filter (genuine Hyundai Oil Filter).b0f9f5a.jpg
