Default P0013 - Cam Position Sensor?

I have 2 codes on my car.
P0446 which is said to be Evap Control Solenoid related
P0013 - Camshaft sensor Bank 2. Which the parts store says is most likely the exhaust cam position sensor.

P0446 I'm not worried about. I had it cleared it and it hasn't came back. Sounds like the P0440 I got on my Saturn SL2 a couple times every spring and fall but never actually caused a problem. But, I will most likely try to fix it eventually.

P0013 sounds like something I should definitely fix. Looking up on AC-Delco.com it lists two different cam sensors. One it says there is two of on the car. The other says there is one. But, it doesn't give any indication which is the exhaust cam.

I found forums/showpost.php?p=2021551&postcount=26 (won't let me post the actual link) but I'm not understanding it. Could just be that it is still somewhat early and I didn't get enough sleep.

Have any of you had experience with this code?
Do you know which sensor is the right one?

I still need to find a manual for this thing so I'll be going in somewhat blind when it is time to replace it...

I believe you are correct with bank 2 being the exhaust side. They are the easiest part to replace on our engines. Both sensors are located on the driver side of the engine and held in with one screw. I would replace the exhaust one first and if that doesn't fix the code just switch them around.

Being VVT, I expected there to be two. But they are actually identical?

But yeah, ACDelco says the engine has 2 "25192205" "Engine Camshaft Position Sensor"
1 "55352609" "Camshaft Position Sensor"
and
1 "55555806" "Engine Crankshaft Position Sensor"

So... not sure exactly which one I'd be replacing. Guessing it would be the "25192205"

25192205 is the one I replaced last summer, and cured my sluggish throttle response.

Default Re: P0013 - Cam Position Sensor?

I've had the part for weeks but finally installed it last night.
Just to attempt to completely perform the process of elemination, I installed the new sensor in the intake position and the (no codes thrown so should be good) intake sensor in the exhaust sensor position.

Cleared the codes and the car felt more peppy.

Then... it threw the same exact code again. OpCom gives 2 more digits and a quick explanation.

Do you know if part 2240050 is the same as part 55352609? Searching on ebay I get the same part, ie., they look exactly the same to me.
