Re: 2009 Mailibu - 2.4L - Check Engine - Intake Camshaft Position Sensor
Have you checked to see if it is covered under warranty yet? It is easy to replace if the sensor is the problem. The only one I encountered with this code was a wiring problem at the PCM, but that was because the car was in an accident. So, if it isn't under warranty and you want to just try the sensor it is located below the oil fill hole in the cylinder head.
I would check to make sure the connector is fully seated before doing anything. If you change the sensor the bolt torque spec is 89 in lbs. Also, before putting in the new sensor lubricate the o-ring on the sensor with clean engine oil and be sure everything is clean.
