GM Tech (Cam) :

Hello, I'm Cam. Please include all the details about your issue so I can accurately advise you. I cannot see your vehicle so please be detailed.

GM Tech (Cam) :

so the first thing I want to ask is your mileage.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Mileage is 44734
Expert:  GM Tech (Cam) replied 2 years ago.
Ok, before we go too far I want to draw the GM powertrain warranty to your attention. You are under mileage and there is a chance that this may be covered.

Now, onto the issue. This is a problem with the timing of the exhaust can shaft. It is controlled by a solenoid in the passengers front of the engine, the actuator that is housed in the exhaust cam gear or the timing chain itself.

If I was to suggest a part to try, it would be the solenoid since it can be removed and changed very quickly.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
is this also the result of P0300? are the two related?
Expert:  GM Tech (Cam) replied 2 years ago.
The timing will cause the P0300, which is an engine misfire so yes I am certain they are related.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
being a novelist at auto mech., could you locate the solenoid for me? thanks
Expert:  GM Tech (Cam) replied 2 years ago.
It is simple, far right (passenges ) side of the cylinder head, on the front, round, 1.5" around and 3 long with a single connector coming out.
