The solution to codes P0010, P0011, P0013 & P0014 for a 2.4L engine:

Firstly, these two parts are covered by your 5 yr 100,000 mi powertrain warranty, if it hasn't expired.

Pull off the plastic engine cover. Find the two small cylinders just to the left of the #1 spark plug. Replace them both. They are called intake & exhaust camshaft position (CMP) actuator solenoids (among other names). Autozone should carry the Dormans but I'm not sure they'll have the AC/Delcos (OEM). Just remove the hold-down bolts & pull up the cylinders. Put engine oil on the new o-rings & don't over-torque the bolts. The two are keyed differently (& have different part numbers) so you can't interchange them. Here's a how-to video:

Dorman part # 917-216 (exhaust) & 917-215 (intake)

To help illustrate which part it is, here are a couple of pics I snapped.
The parts in question are in the red circle and are labeled...





Torque spec is 89 inch-pounds (just over 7 ft-lbs). So definitely be careful not to over-tighten them as greenman said.

sorry I just figured with the limited years of production all the 3.5 would be the same.

I have the 2007 base sport 3.5

Also could the actuators contribute to engine noise, almost sounds like a lifter ticking was think maybe it could because of limited oil flow? I haven't drove the car much but it seems to just do it after it is driven for a little while. FYI I just got the car 3 days ago.

I got a P0014 code on my 2008 G6 2.4L. I disconnected the plugs on the 2 sensors, started the car with them diconnected, shut it off, plugged them back in, and started it. Code cleared so far....

I'll bet the code came back soon enough.

I just did this myself. I had the P0010 code and replaced the intake solenoid. The easiest way to get it out is to remove the valve cover as well. Might wanna check your valve cover gasket while you're in there too. Mine was weeping in the corner. Not an overly time consuming job, just kind of a pain to get the valve cover back on.

Replacing the solonoids fixed my intermittent P0010 on my 2009 2.4
I replaced both for good measure. If one is failing/failed the other isn't far behind.
