p0010 2006 Chevy Impala

Re: p0010 2006 Chevy Impala
This is fairly common and luckily a pretty easy fix. What you need to do is change the cam position actuator magnet that is located on the front of the engine. It looks like a large black triangle with a connector coming out the side of it. There are three torx screws that hold it on. Easy to replace....but...you need to check the following. There is a small 'button' that rides between the camshaft and the magnet. Once the magnet is removed, you should be able to push the button in on the timing gear and have it pop back out. If it does not, then you're looking at having to replace the camshaft and the timing gear set. This is very rare, so you'll most likely be good with just replacing the magnet, but just wanted you to know the details of everything involved.

Re: p0010 2006 Chevy Impala
Okay i ordered and changed the magnet like u said very easy, cleared code, stupid thing is back, what else ecm ?
Re: p0010 2006 Chevy Impala
Problem solved, after getting the car up on a hoist, i found that the plug that goes into the magnet had bare wires touching, after repairing that, i cleared the code and it never came back, Thanks for all the help.
Re: p0010 2006 Chevy Impala
Where does that wire go that plugs into the magnet can you get to it without a shop lift??
