Camshaft Actuator Solenoid (2008 LS 3.5L flex K)
 
Started my car this morning and out of no where , my CEL came on. I plugged up my OBDII , and it gave me a "P0010" code. Which came to be "Camshaft Position (CMP) actuator solenoid control circuit ". Im not sure exactly where this actuator is located, or how hard it would be to access and change it if possible. I have yet to find anybody else with the same problem yet with theirs. ANY ideas or input would be greatly appreciated.

It has come up a couple times here, but it isn't common. The actuator is located on the front of the block where the camshaft goes in. Directly under the PS pulley.

I swear man you are a life saver!!!! I look forward to your responses on my questions. I figured out earlier today at work that the piece I was looking at was the cam actuator. I just needed the confirmation. So now it's finding the part and figuring out can I do it myself .

No problem, wish I could help further, but I have not had to replace one of those yet.

It's looks fairly easy like four screws and a plug. Ill let you know how it turns out.

Checking it out the morning. when I unplugged the connector, to check it and the wire is frayed. It was rubbing against the serpentine belt. So I may be just looking at a plug connector .

That would be much easier, and cheaper! I bet that's it.

So I spliced the wire together and cut the light off with my obdII reader. Everything is ok ill just have to order another plug connector. ALSO if the actuator goes bad it will effect how the tranny shift . I didn't believe if but it does. it gives it that hard stiff snatch into gear as they are changing. I thought my tranny was messed up again so I took it back to the place that rebuilt it. And that's when I found out that it effects it. And I also found out my oil pressure sending unit circuit is bad or the unit it self is bad .

So was it just the wires ?
