I've gotta confess, I don't even know what a camshaft cover is. I know about an appearance cover, I know about a front cover, I know about a valve cover. Is the camshaft cover and valve cover the same thing? My gut says valve cover and camshaft cover are two terms for the same thing. The engineers in that bulletin call it the camshaft cover, I would have always called it the valve cover. If a valve cover, the problem is the busted parts from the valve can't be found and dislodged - if you just replace the oil control valve and leave one little stuck part, flow is compromised and you get code.I understand an oil passage getting blocked if one of the valve pieces breaks off, but why would the cover have to be replaced?
The hope is when removed and inspected the valve has no missing parts.
