I have noticed this before normally the fix is to replace the camshaft actuator
Here are the steps to check every options
This is most likely the solenoid being bad But just in case you have the test procedures and know what to look for.

I need additional help indetifing sensors and the location, I replaced what I thought was both cam shaft sensors located high and on the very front of the engine. Bopth sensors were only about an inch to an inch and a half long. The crank sensor does not look like the one in the illistration, the one I pulled out and replaced with an auto zone replacement was about three inches long and was a brass slug, (no holes or screens), this was lacated on the drivers side of the block. Am I looking at the wrong sensor, if so where is the one in your illistration.
Lets see if I can get a image of the location
Thats what it will look like
This will go into the head I dont have a exact location still looking
camshaft position actuator valve this is most likely a dealer only item and will fix the problem
Please take a moment to press ACCEPT so I can credit for my time and effort if this was helpful Thanks Danny
Il'l hit up the dealer tomorrow and buy one, thnks for your help, Il'l let you know how it turns out.
The Gary Lange Chevy was still open and had one in stock, $56 and change for a new one, pulled out the old one to find screen #1 missing, ran my finger down the hole to feel nothing, installed the new actuator and still getting mixed unusual things happening. Idles ok one second and then rough another, tried to rev the engine and nothing, pedel is to the floor and not much more than idle happening. Cleared the error code and engine light still hasn't come back on yet, let it idle for a while and thing appeared to be running better as each minute went by, took it for a test drive and it sputtered a couple times but ran much better, parked it and let it idle, a few more sputters but overall better. Will see over the next 24 hrs how things go.
