On the 2013 Chevy Captiva Sport with the 2.4L engine, the P0014 is a fairly straight forward code pointing to a problem with the exhaust camshaft position performance. This is most commonly due to a faulty camshaft position actuator solenoid. These are fairly common fail items. The solenoid is located on the top, passenger’s side of the engine, just to the left of ignition coil #1. The exhaust solenoid is the rear-most of the two solenoids (the front is intake side). To gain access, remove the air cleaner outlet duct and the intake cover. Carefully inspect the electrical connector and wire harness for any loose, broken or damaged wires. If no problems are found, replacing the solenoid should solve the problem. To replace, unplug the electrical connector. Remove the mounting bolt. Using and twist-and-pull motion, remove the solenoid.
