Interesting... I have the engine rattle noise but am not experiencing any power-loss issues. So I'm not too worried just yet. Should I?

I'm at 19k miles.

I just had mu Astra in today, and the dealer performed this repair under warranty. I originally had a check engine light come on last Sunday, and it went off yesterday, but the codes were still stored.

The car is running much better now. There is no dead spot (hesitation to rev) between 2200 and 4000 rpm, like I had before. The engine revs freely all the way to red line now.

Has anyone noticed hesitation while idling? as if the alternator was going/car stalling, my car occasionally (maybe once every 2 months) does this. haven't really noticed any issues though, it drops for a split second then comes back up.

Yes, me too. I remember this coming up in a thread, and there are quite a few people that experience the little near stall and recovery every couple of months.

Yes, and more often than I used to. Approach a traffic light, clutch in, and there's a brief stumble that feels as if it's about to stall (but it never does). Can this be related?

They just did that repair and they charged me 62$.its not covered by the powertrain warranty.i will call gm canada to know why its not covered by the 160000 km warranty.its a really easy repair to do.Only remove the two cam actuator and remove the 2 orange screen/filters.torque the bolt to 53 inch/pound or 8 newton-meter.20minutes and you are done.

Bro, they shouldnt have charged you on that repair, if your car is still under warranty, that should have been covered, i just had both of mine replaced and it was covered. So, yea i would call up and tell them what happen. good luck.

Will they do this repair without the check engine light/codes? My engine is very rattly and has very uneven power output/acceleration... but the check engine light has never come on.

Powertrain warranty ..... Look it up, see what it means. It's really rather simple.

Hi - have any of you who have experienced this issue found a permanent fix?

Just had the dealer replace the intake cam actuator for P0011 and I'm not feeling that the performance issue has been resolved.

basically find the torts (star) bolts holding each one on. They are at the base of the solenoid. once the bolt is removed you need to really pull them out with force to unseat them. Do you have a new one to replace them with or are you removing the filter?

On a quick note:
#2 placing a drain pan underneath... uhh not really needed barely any oil comes out. I did mine not during an oil change and it was fine. I'm still looking for one of the solenoids with a new part number and not the old one. I'm running one new, and one old just fine but it's getting loud during cold starts and cold running so I am trying the new ones to see if thats the root cause as I've read before.

My kid's '08 Astra is getting DTC P000B. From what I've read, the TSB that covers this is simply to remove the filters from the CAM Position Actuator Solenoids. Can someone confirm this is correct. If this is the case, I can remove them tonight so she can drive to work in the morning.

Yes, codes P000A and P000B are for "Camshaft Position Slow Response" and the TSB is for removing the filters.

I have had this problem occur on both of my Astras - the first time I was unaware of the TSB (and so, evidently was my dealer), and I replaced the actuator. The next time (with the other actuator), I simply removed the filters and haven't had a problem in 20,000 miles. When my second Astra started exhibiting intermittent power loss (it seems that the problem becomes intermittent and driveability is impacted well before a code is set), I removed the filters there also and it's been trouble free for about 20,000 miles.
