2011 Chevy Malibu 2.4L P0017

Chevy Malibu On the 2011 Chevy Malibu with the 2.4L engine, the P0017 code is pointing to a problem with the Crankshaft-to-Exhaust Camshaft correlation. First thing to check here is the timing chain. Many times the chain can stretch or jump slightly which can cause the correlation issue. Make sure the timing marks are still set dead-on perfect. Even the slightest bit off can set this code. If the timing marks check ok, then this can be a problem with the Camshaft Position Actuator Solenoid. This solenoid advances/retards the ignition…

The 3.6L is very well known for the timing chain to “jump” due to a problem with the chain and/or the chain tensioner. However- when this is the case, more times than not, there are multiple correlation codes (P0017 – P0021). So, if this is the only code set, best place to…
