Customer Question
I just took in my...
I just took in my 2004 Chevy Colorado for the engine light. The problem was code P0014 and the dealership replaced the cam actuator. I picked up my truck and the next day the engine light came on again. I got a meter to see what the code is myself. It is the same P0014 code. Why would I get the same error code? Did the dealership do something wrong when they replaced the cam actuator?
