    Hello Pontiac G6 Owner,

    I would start by having someone check your engine oil level. This code is related to the camshaft position and a valve that is controlled by oil pressure. If your oil is very low or dirty, it could set this code. Also, if you oil is low, you will start wearing out your new car's engine.

    If the oil level checks okay, there is most likely an issue with the cam position sensor, control valve, computer, or wiring issue.

    Let me know if you need anymore help,
