p0013 - 159 SW 2.2jts
Has anyone had a definitive conclusion having had this error code?
The look up gives: ' "B" Camshaft Position Actuator Circuit (Bank 1) '
I've searched high and low but cannot find a definite cause.
The code (and symptoms: lethargic engine, way down on power) are intermittent, but it's obvious that the variable timing isn't working. Sometimes its for a minute or two, sometimes longer, and sometimes weeks pass without issue.
Timing chain was replaced about a year ago before I bought the car, and the only code presenting is P0013. Interestingly an oil change cleared things for several weeks before the problem returned.
My first thoughts are cam position sensor. Cheap and easy enough to replace, but I wondered if the solenoid is the more likely cause.
Any thoughts anyone?
