P0013 Chevrolet Description

The Camshaft Position (CMP) actuator is attached to each camshaft and is hydraulically operated in order to change the angle of the camshaft relative to Crankshaft Position ( CKP ). The CMP actuator solenoid is controlled by the control module. The control module sends a pulse width modulated 12-volt signal to a CMP actuator solenoid. The solenoid controls the amount of engine oil flow to a CMP actuator. The CMP actuator can change the camshaft angle a maximum of 25 degrees. The control module increases the pulse width to accomplish the desired camshaft operation.

Possible causes

  • Dirty Oil
  • Low engine oil level
  • Faulty Exhaust Camshaft Position Actuator Solenoid
  • Exhaust Camshaft Position Actuator Solenoid harness is open or shorted
  • Exhaust Camshaft Position Actuator Solenoid circuit poor electrical connection
  • Faulty Engine Control Module (ECM)
