Hello, my name is Bobby. Thank you for the question. This code if for a camshaft position issue. Most of the time it is because the cam sensor has failed or there is a bad connection on the sensor. This can also be caused by low or dirt engine oil. I would check the oil level and change it if needed. You can then reset the code and see it is returns. If it does then I would replace the cam sensor as it is unlikely that you have a serious internal engine problem if there are not any other noises going on within the engine. Please let me know if you need more help.
