Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today. In some cases, I may need more info to assist better. I apologize for any delay.
I try to be here most weekdays and some weekends. If you respond and I do not respond back right away I will do so as soon as I can.

This is a circuit electrical fault code that is setting here. With all that has been replaced already, this can be the engine computer itself at fault internally. You will need to follow the circuit diagnostic part of the diagnostic test procedure for this code. I will post it below. It will lead to the cause and I suspect with all that has already been done here that this will end up being the computer itself at fault.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above). You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question. I work on delivering the best answer and help here but in some cases, it can be difficult to do without seeing the vehicle.

Thanks, Pete

already replaced computer and same code reappeared almost instantly., also I switched the wires at computer so that the intake cam sensor was looking at the exaust and the exaust was looking at the intake, and p0013 still returned.

Unfortunately, I am unable to place a call on this myself here can .however continue here. Others will see you have requested a call and may still call you on this. Did you follow the diagnostic test procedure for this code at all to see what it led to?
