what is the resistance value of the Cam shaft position actuator solenoid
Chevy Mechanic: david craig, Auto Mechanic replied 11 days ago

this is not a bad camshaft position sensor solenoid. it is a problem of correlation between the crank sensor and cam sensor. its a timing issue. READ THE PDF'S

i understand ,,,,,, but the car runs fine,,,,, i drove it from the auction to home about 50 miles distance and did not notice any issues ,,,,, so if its timing should not the car have a rough ride or performance
Chevy Mechanic: david craig, Auto Mechanic replied 11 days ago

not exactly, the screens on the solenoid are probably clogged causing the actuators to advance or retard just enough to throw the code. remove the solenoids and inspect the oil screens
