    Hello again

    I have a check engine code P0010 which is Intake Camshaft Position (CMP) Actuator Solenoid Control Circuit

    is this an easy "do it yourself" fix or better for a mechanic to fix?

    Thanks

    No worries, one could assume that it was a 2.2 since you posted in the LS section, just wanted to be sure.

    Here's what the GM Service Manual says for that code.
    So things you need to check:
    Oil, is it at the correct level, of the correct viscosity and when was it changed last?
    Check the resistance of both of your CMP actuator solenoids, they should be 8-12ohms

    If you find the solenoid that is bad (it'll be the one closest to the front of the car) it's pretty cake to replace if you know your way around a set of hand tools. I'll post instructions in a minute.

    Images didn't show up so here's an image that I can explain from. Cyl 1 is on the passenger side of the motor, just to the left of that spark plug coil are 2 smaller plugs, those are the cam actuators. You want to disconnect and remove the one closest to the front bumper. In my picture there's a long ziptie end that runs right over the top of them. Just squeeze the clip and pull to remove the connector.

    Best of luck, I would make sure it doesn't need new O-rings first, and if everything else appears fine I would replace the actuator.

    Here's what I believe the part number is 12628347 Make sure to verify with a local dealership that this is the correct part for your car. GMpartsdirect.com has it for $29.91+shipping. Dealer will want at least $50.46.

    Did you end up needing to replace the pay or just an o-ring?
