I have a 2013 Impala and my check engine light came on while I was about 75 miles from home. I pulled over in the next town and found an auto parts place to get the OBD2 code. It posted a code of P0014 Camshaft Position- Timing over Advanced or system performance (Bank-1). My car was running fine so I drove home. No issues. Ran fine, good gas mileage, starts fine, oil is not quite due, etc...
Any Idea what it could be and how to fix it?

Thanks,

Ted

How many miles? If under 100k miles, just take it to a GM dealer and get it resolved under warranty. My understanding is that this is usually a mechanical problem...

EDIT: Also - just realized that this is posted in the wrong forum (posted in the "site issue" forum???

Older 3.5L engines have had history of the P0011 CEL coming up pointing to the Camshaft timing position also. In that engine, there is a GM part number 12589784 camshaft actuator magnet that solves the problem if the sensor and wires check out and are fine.

I had the part installed on my 06 3.5L just last week. I sometimes did not have any symptoms at all with smooth engine, but then I started getting surging of the RPM's and some rough acceleration and the code would come up after highway and higher speed trips.

Here is the description for your code:

Possible causes
- Dirty Oil
- Low engine oil level
- Faulty Exhaust Camshaft Position Actuator Solenoid
- Exhaust Camshaft Position Actuator Solenoid harness is open or shorted
- Exhaust Camshaft Position Actuator Solenoid circuit poor electrical connection
- Faulty Engine Control Module (ECM)

which is very similar to the P0011 code description. Look at my thread over on the 8th Gen forum 1088737-camshaft-position-sensor-and-p0011 for some details on the parts that I found. Verify them to your specific engine and parts list for your 13 Impala.
