    Your timing belt replacement was due at 60K, better not wait much longer. The camshaft cover must be removed to replace the cam sensor on your 2005 Chevrolet Aveo so it may be a good idea to replace it while the timing belt job is being done. Make sure the wiring and the electrical connector at the cam sensor are all OK that way if the code does reset after the timing belt and sensor have been replaced you can be fairly certain the problem is not behind the timing cover. Remember, intermittent sensor problems can be very difficult to diagnose and sometimes the best option is to simply replace the sensor and see what happens. If the fault code does reset after replacing the sensor a complete inspection of the sensor wiring all the way to the computer and the computer itself would be in order.
