2010 chevrolet equinox 3.0L v6...I had a check engine light

Customer Question

2010 chevrolet equinox 3.0L v6...I had a check engine light on so I plugged my snap on pro link ultra into the bod. The code i got was for a camshaft timing sensor bank 1 sensor b. According to a diagram i found on the internet it said it was on the rear head but closer to the front of the car. I replaced the sensor. I'm still getting the same code for the same sensor. Did I miss something?

What is the exact code you are getting?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Crankshaft-camshaft correlation bank 1 sensor b
Expert:  Tool Hut replied 1 month ago.

A correlation code is almost never a bad sensor. Usually it is a timing chain or tensioner problem

Wow. Ok. So how do I verify that?
Expert:  Tool Hut replied 1 month ago.

Do you have a scope? If no the only way is to remove the front cover

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Wow. What am I looking for when I pull the cover? Proper tension ?
Expert:  Tool Hut replied 1 month ago.

Align the timing marks and make sure they align. Broken tensioner. Debris, broken guide. loose chain

OK. If I can get ahold of a scope where should I look with it?
