Pontiac Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome. this engine uses variable camshaft timing. in other works, the two camshafts have actuators that change the cam timing. the actuators are feed engine oil from the control solenoids in the top of the cylinder heads. this causes the actuators to rotate, thus changing the cam timing. this code can be very difficult to check without a tech two scan tool. the most common problem is the control solenoid mounted in the head. the cam sensors very rarely fail.
DTC P0011: Intake Camshaft Position (CMP) System Performance
this is what happens to set this code.
The difference between the desired CMP actuator angle and the actual CMP actuator angle is greater than 6 degrees for greater than 13.5 s.
If it is just the control solenoid, about $100.00 for the part. takes about 10 mintues to replace. here is a picture of the control solenoid.
