Engine light came on, showing code p0014. Camshaft issue. Also burning two courts of oil every 2000 miles
Engine light came on, took it to Autozone and got code P0011. Car has stalled 3x now. Looking to take it in this week.
Engine light came on and I had it checked and this is the code that came up. The dealership told me it was an exhaust camshift sensor, currently this was not covered under my warranty, however the dealership I bought it from is paying for the repair cost since I bought the vehicle this way...
Reduced engine power light on. Issue with camshft timing. Engine nneds torn apart and new camshafts and timing belts not happy...
PCM code displayed and was repaired at no cost by dealer. However now vehicle will not start on two separate occasions since vehicle returned. Is it related? Vehicle will only start after being jumped and starts fine for about 3 weeks then has to be jumped again??????
Coded for second time in 4 months. Engine runs normal; no drivability issues. Only DTC light.
Check engine light just came on. Got it checked came up with a code P0014. Hoping this is a powertrain issue
Actually the problem happened when I first bought the car used and I traveled 3hrs. away from my home in the winter and it was snowing ungodly when the car started shutting down and stating engine power low. The dealership I bought it from replaced the gas pedal they said. Well, its happening again and I am very concerned with my children in the vehicle when this happens I have no control. The steering wheel locks up and the car just shuts down. It is doing this again, but it has been riding rough for awhile. The code states its the throttle sensor. But who knows, there a several engine recalls. I don't know, but I think GM needs to replace these vehicles at no cost! Our lives are more important then their bank accounts being debited!!!!!
I have noticed my car burning oil fast. I usually have to add a quart after 1000 miles of an oil change. Recently my check engine light was coming on and I'd add oil and it would go off. Now my check engine light came on and stayed on. I did a scan on it and the p0014 code showed up along with p0411 for a faulty secondary air injector flow. I'm guessing the two are related. I got a new camshaft position sensor and will see if that fixes the problem.
I was getting the gas cap engine warning light on and off for approx 2 months .I was due for transmission flush and another flush which I thought was the problem.After the flushes were done I did get the gas cap engine light for approx one month but then it started again so I took my car into gm dealer ran a code of poo11 service advisor stated the camshaft actuator solenoids shorted. I was informed there are 2 of these on which one was bad but advised to have both replaced my car did not stall but it started hard.I just had work done today and hopefully this resolves the problem
Check engine light came on. Car was running fine. Pulled code P0014, definition was: indicated that the bank 1 exhaust camshaft position timing was advanced beyond limits for a predetermined period of time. Just pulled code today, this started last night so I have not hadn't fixed yet,
