Default 2008 Saturn Aura 3.5 P0010/P0340

Hello,

I have a 200& Saturn Aura XE 3.5 with 140k miles with codes P0010 and P0340.
Check engine light is on. The car stalls on occasion and has no acceleration on occasion. Itís my wifeís car so I picked it up from the stalled location since she couldnít get it started and have not been able to recreate the symptoms. The car was drivable once I reset the codes.

I went ahead and replaced the camshaft sensor, which I found under the power steering pump. Reset the codes and light came back after a few miles. Took it apart again and replaced the harness with one I pulled from a junkyard since itís a circuit code. Figured the harness was crap since itís brittle plastic, and a lot of the wiring seems to be this way on this car. Check engine Light still comes on after splicing the harness and reconnecting the wires.

Iíd like to get some pointers before taking the car in because if itís electrical I am not sure all I can do.

Thanks for the help in advance.

2008 AURA XE
Default Re: 2008 Saturn Aura 3.5 P0010/P0340

P0010 is for the Intake Camshaft Position Actuator Solenoid. P0340 is for the camshaft position sensor. It's possible P0340 was set because the actuator solenoid is bad and the camshaft is not being driven to the expected position.

This links to some pages from the shop manual that describes the operation and details removal and replacement.

You could test the solenoid for continuity with an ohm meter. Should be something like 9-15 ohms.

Hey thanks for that info imaddicted2u. Itís my first time on SaturnFans threads.
Would the replacement part be this below?

AC Delco Part#12589784 - https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/...actuator,12910

I will try and test the OHMs of this part as you mentioned. If not, I may just bite the bullet and purchase the part from RockAuto or pull it from a yard maybe for cheap to test.

Iíll be sure to post back with a update.
Side note, I do maintain regular oil changes and the oil is currently at the correct level.
Any other recommendations?
