GM P0011, GM P0014

GM P0011, GM P0014 Diagnose and fix P0011 or P0014 P0011 is: Intake Camshaft Position System Performance and P0014 is: Exhaust Camshaft Position System Performance. Both of these codes relate to the variable valve timing (VVT) system on the engine. VVT allows the computer to advance or retard camshaft timing to achieve optimal engine performance and optimal emissions. The system operates the advance/retard mechanism by filling or emptying oil chambers in the VVT phaser located at the front of the intake and exhaust camshafts. The VVT solenoid pulses motor oil … Read More


Diagnose and fix trouble code P0014 A P0014 trouble code is part of a family of trouble codes that can be set if there’s a problem with the engine’s variable valve timing (VVT) system. The P0014 code is a generic OBDII code defined as: Intake Camshaft Position Timing – Over-Advanced (Bank 1). Bank 1 is the bank containing cylinder #1. The following trouble codes also relate to the VVT system: P0010 Intake Camshaft Position Actuator Circuit / Open (Bank 1) P0011 Intake Camshaft Position Timing – Over-Advanced (Bank 1) P0012 … Read More

Dodge Ram P0016, P0013, P0014

What causes P0016, P0013, P0014 on Dodge Ram? If you encounter 2010 5.7L V-8 Dodge Ram P0016, P0013, P0014 trouble codes, don’t panic. These codes are all related and revolve around P0013. Here’s what’s going on. This V-8 engine has variable valve timing. The camshafts are rotated by hydraulic mechanisms to shift the valve opening timing based on commands from the PCM. The PCM pulses power to a solenoid to open and close an oil pressure port. The rapid opening and closing varies the oil pressure to the variable valve … Read More

P0014 cam phaser trouble code

Fix a P0014 cam phaser code P0014 cam phaser trouble code can be caused by dirty oil or sludge The cam phaser shifts the timing of the camshaft to provide variable valve timing. If you get a P0014 cam phaser trouble code it’s because the computer is detecting a difference between the commanded advance/retard and the actual advance/retard. The first thing to check is the OIL. You heard me. Cam phasers are solenoids that pulse oil pressure to a hydraulic actuator to advance or retard the timing. Many P0014 cam … Read More
