I found where is located but I can't reach it. The motor is SLE 6 CYL. 3.6L Yesterday the tech. Told me that the code is P0019. Is it a timing chain or sensor? Let me know and thanks for your time.

Do you

There are 4 cam sensors on that motor. 1 for each cam. That year has engine issues with the cams(head design) and sensor wiring/plugs and timing chains. So new sensor may not cure issue. First you have to know which sensor is reading bad before you replace it. You need code to determine that. P0019 crank/cam correlation error. This sounds like timing chain issue. This is a KNOWN issue with this yr/model. They should replace on their dime.

I have a similar issue with my '07. I had the code read and it came up with the P0017 Crankshaft Position - Exhaust Camshaft Position Correlation Bank 1. Timing chain?

There are four one on each cam, so if there is a code send that so we can give exact position.

See picture, but it may be the camshaft actuator causing the problem or a clogged screen in actuator. Unplug sensor unbolt and reverse to reassemble. It is for intake cam bank 1 RH head.

My check engine light comes on periodically. It was diagnosed that the camshaft position sensor was bad. Where is this part located on the engine and is it difficult to replace? 2007 GMC Acadia
