06 Solstice: with 50,000 comes back after a half hours driving

This answer was rated:

Have a '06 Solstice with 50,000 mi. Getting a P0014 code. Cleared it and it comes back after a half hours driving. Once it even cleared itself, then returned. Should I replacing the camshaft position actuator or sensor? What's the chances that either one of these replacements will fix it? Should I be checking out or replacing something else? No performance degradation with this code that I can tell. Thanks Chuck

Replace the actuator and your problem should be taken care of, let me know if you have questions. Thanks
