Default How-to: Fix codes P0010, P0011, P0013 or P0014 on the 2.4L ecotec engine:

Remove the engine cover. Find the two small cylinders just to the left of the #1 spark plug. They are called the intake & exhaust camshaft position (CMP) actuator solenoids. I recommend that you replace them both. But if you choose, you can just replace the intake actuator for a 10 or 11 code or the exhaust actuator for a 13 or 14 code. There are no aftermarket versions available...just the OEM ACDelco. Either get from a dealer or (probably cheaper) online (though a bit harder to find online than at a dealer). Just remove the hold-down bolts & pull up on the actuators. Put engine oil on the new o-rings & don't over-torque the hold-down bolts (torque spec is only 7 ft-lbs). The actuators are keyed differently (& have different part numbers) so you can't interchange them.

Part #
Intake: 12646783
Exhaust: 12646784

I see in this post that it says no Aftermarket replacements available...granted this was posted about 6 months ago, but I did buy an aftermarket Exhaust Camshaft Solenoid from Oreilly's yesterday and installed it. CEL just went off today...we will see how reliable/durable it is. Just an FYI, there are some becoming available.

The one I bought was $44.

Are your connectors in good shape to your Solenoids? Also, are you low on oil? What viscocity do you use? Has it been changed recently? All these factors could make this code pop up, especially if you changed the solenoid....report back and we can help you from there.

Furthermore - when I unplugged mine to replace them, one connector was saturated pretty well with engine oil, believe it was the intake one - closest to the front bumper. I used electrical contact cleaner spray to clean it all out and let it air dry about 5 minutes before I plugged it back into the new sensor.

Yours might be wet w/ oil and not making good connection or giving faulty reading.

Good luck!

This is a great post. For those like me who are afraid of breaking plastic parts I thought I would add some details about removing the engine cover. The cover is held to the throttle body by a band clamp. The screw is accessed from the driver side of the vehicle. On my 09, the engine cover has a slot which allows you to see the screw head that is used to adjust the clamp. Using the slot for viewing makes this 100% easier.

Once that clamp is loosened, there is a hose on the front passenger side that can easily be removed. Then pull up on the rear cover. Each side is just pushed onto a rubber grommet. Once the back is loose, pull up around the throttle body in the front. It may take some gentle rocking but if the clamp is loose it will wiggle free.

I had P0013 (Exhaust Camshaft Position Actuator Solenoid Control Circuit) come up after finishing a 5 hour drive about a year ago. Basically I cleared the code, drove back to Toronto with no problems. Code hasnt come back and I've put about 10,000km more on it. The only other work I've done after on the car is changing the plugs.

Just had this same problem on our 2009 Malibu.

I changed exhaust cam solenoid now to see if check engine light (CEL) (MIL) stays out after I reset it.

Point of information 12646784 number has now been superceded by 12655421
Point of information 12646783 number has now been superceded by 12615873

Solenoid valve was listed for 56.14 but with my discount I got it for $45.46 at Chevy dealer.

OReilly's had it listed for 49.99 under Dorman 917-216 number but did not have it in stock. Amazon lists Dorman valve for $24.75 on sale.
