In my experience, gmpartsdirect.com makes SURE to have the lowest posted price, and tack on higher shipping/handling to make up for it. Don't fall for their trick and dismiss other vendors until you compare the price to get it to your door.FYI to all- gmpartsdirect.com has part number 12615873 for $54.01, plus shipping.
Kind of old post but simple question about the solanoid. Is it suposed to spin when the bolt is tight? I took mine out and cleaned it. Thought it fixed the code but poped back on. Truck runs fine scanner sayscam position exhaust advanced timing bank 1. Replaced the cps already cleaned solanoid oil change. Not sure if actuator is supposed to spin doesn't seem right tho thx for the help in advanceSorry if I missed it when I scanned the thread, but is it normal/acceptable for your CPAS to have oil pooled INSIDE the connector?
Both the connector to the wiring harness and the CPAS female portion were filled/soaked.
EDIT: Finally used my noggin, and remembered our Colorado has the same engine minus a cylinder.
If there is a screen missing, or oil in the connector, replace it.
BTW...NAPA is selling this part now for $31. I called just to see if they would carry it and to my suprise they had it.
I lied...the guy swore it was the correct part, but NO he was quoting the camshaft position sensor! :duh:Somehow I cannot believe this is true.
(well I hope it's not true as I just purchased one for around $62).
Sure you have the right part and not the Camshaft Position Sensor thing.
Isn't the part #12615873 "Camshaft actuator solenoid valve"
I just replaced mine and it eliminated that idle your having i had the same thing. for a 30 dollar part its not that bad. Go for it it probably will help!. Or clean the throttle body. or sea foam the intake line.!Do you think this could be why my wife's car idles rough while in drive but not in neutral? I have also noticed that the car does not accelerate very well. Would this be the problem too?
