I've seen several articles posted like this one
My check engine light came on and these were the codes that it threw. From what I understand this has to do with the camshaft position sensor.Autozone felt that it may be the camshaft position sensors or oil. I replaced both camshaft position sensors, and changed the oil, reset the battery.Performance returned, drove 100 miles without turning the car off, when I turned it back on again, in a few seconds the light came back on and threw the same two codes (P0013 & P0014).Also, my performance went down. When I reset the computer, the check engine light turns off, and everything runs fine, regardless of how far I drive, until I turn the car off. Once I turn it back on, same code, same performance drop. This is repeatable.Anyone have any other suggestions or things I can try before I take it to the garage? I've tried searching everywhere that I can but I haven't found any other solutions other than to replace the camshaft position sensors and change the oil.

Fastener Caution

Caution: Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.

on my OBD reader it says B camshaft pos actuator control circuit, Open Bank 1 for the P0013 code. Does this mean that just one of the sensors are bad?
for the P0014 it says B camshaft position, Timing over advanced or system performance Bank 1.
do you know what the "B" and "Bank 1" mean? I'm hoping I don't have to buy two of the sensors......
Pontiac Mechanic: john aka eaut, The Car Guy replied 2 years ago

B is the exhaust cam side...

I opend it and circle the area in yellow which (I believe) refers to one of the parts you are suggesting I replace
In the red circle are two parts that a couple other articles suggested I replace. I no longer have that info and was wondering what the parts inside the red circle are called. Just in case your plan doesn't work, I will then maybe try replacing the parts inside the red circle as a 2nd option.

Last question John, when I asked you about what the "B" meant, you said B is the exhaust cam side... closest to the exhaust manifold, I would assume the one closest to the exhaust manifold would be the one side closest to the cab or rear of the vehicle. Or farthest from the front of the car. Or the #1 in the picture attached?

would the #1 be closest to the exhaust manifold?

ok thanks John. Actually the info I found where they suggested replacing the solenoids first was a guy named "Goodwrench9124" who is also on this site. I'm going to O'reileys to buy the parts now. Thank you

hope you rate me 5 star it can be either... a good scan tool with live data would help confirm

code 13 is the solenoid code 14 is the sensor... so try the solenoid first...if that does not resolve it the sensor would be next I doubt its a timing chain unless the timing chain is noisey

OK John, the woman at O'reileys said that that(in the attached picture) the #2 part is the camshaft sensor. She said this car only has one of them and that the #1 part is called a CRANKshaft sensor. I showed her the picture and told her that I was told that both #1 & #2 are camshaft sensors. Regardless I bought the exact part you mentioned above. Installed it, started the car and the check engine light is still on. Ran it a while, turned on and off and the check lite was still on. I hooked up the OBD reader and again I got the same results with codes P0013 & P0014.
Can you verify that #1 and #2 are indeed different parts or the same part and if I replace the two solenoids, can I get away with replacing one of them and if so which one should I replace? one of them is $44 the other is $48. I think its BS that I'm supposed replace one part that costs $50 and if that doesn't work spend another $50 on the next part and just keep doing that until the problem goes away. I could end up spending $200+, when if this OBD reader would tell me What the problem is instead of giving me vague answers. seems like the OBD reader was a wasted $100 just like this f**king sensor.

  1. Ignition OFF, disconnect the CMP actuator solenoid harness connector at the CMP actuator solenoid.
  2. Test for less than 5ohm between the low reference circuit terminal B and ground.

¤If greater than the specified range, test the low reference circuit for an open/high resistance.

  1. Verify that a test lamp does not illuminate between the low reference circuit terminal B and the control circuit terminal A.

¤If the test lamp illuminates, test the control circuit for short to voltage. If the circuit tests normal, replace the ECM.

  1. Remove the test lamp.
  2. Command the CMP Actuator Sol. ON with a scan tool. Verify the scan tool CMP Sol Ckt Short Gnd Test status is OK.

¤If not the specified value, test the control circuit for a short to ground. If the circuit tests normal, replace the ECM.

  1. Install a 3A fused jumper wire between the control circuit terminal A and the low reference circuit terminal B. Command the CMP Actuator Sol. ON with a scan tool. Verify the scan tool CMP Sol Ckt Short Gnd Test status is Fault.

¤If not the specified value, test the control circuit for an open/high resistance. If the circuit tests normal, replace the ECM.

  1. Determine that the vehicle has the correct engine oil. Refer to Service and Appearance Care.

¤If the engine oil life system monitor displays the Change Oil Soon message, the engine oil is more than one year old, contains additives, or is not the correct viscosity, change the oil.

  1. Test the engine oil pressure. Refer to Oil Pressure Diagnosis and Testing (See: Engine, Cooling and Exhaust\Engine\Testing and Inspection\Component Tests and General Diagnostics).

¤If the oil pressure is low, correct the low pressure first.

  1. Inspect each CMP actuator solenoid valve assembly for the following:
    • Torn screens
    • Debris on the screens
    • Debris clogging the oil ports
    • Missing screens
    • Oil seepage at the solenoid connector pins
  1. Connect a jumper wire between the CMP actuator low reference circuit terminal B at the solenoid and a good ground. Connect a fused jumper wire to the CMP actuator high control circuit terminal A at the solenoid. Momentarily touch the fused jumper to B+. Observe the spool valve inside the CMP actuator. The spool valve should move.

¤If movement is not observed, replace the CMP actuator solenoid.

  1. Inspect the engine timing components. Refer to Camshaft Timing Chain and Sprocket Cleaning and Inspection ().
  2. If all circuits test normal, test or replace the CMP actuator.

Component Testing

  1. Measure the resistance of each CMP actuator solenoid valve assembly. Resistance should be between 8-12ohm.
  2. Connect a jumper wire between the CMP actuator low reference circuit at the solenoid and a good ground. Connect a fused jumper wire to the CMP actuator high control circuit at the solenoid. Momentarily touch the fused jumper to B+. Observe the spool valve inside the CMP actuator. The spool valve should move from fully closed to fully opened position
