Check Engine Code P0014

Check engine light just came on.. Autozone test generated P0014 code. Definition: ECM has detected the camshaft phase angle has exceded its tolerance value, Probable cause: Loose cam or crank sensor, excessive timing chain free play, blocked oil passage in the camshaft actuator assembly or engine, incorrect oil quality or viscosity

Couple things: I spent the day towing a u-haul 5x8 trailer, well within the limits of the vehicle's capacity and I have been using 87 grade gas and just filled it with 93 that morning. Also, I am down to about 12% on the engine oil life according to the DIC.. Anyone else have this? I'm thinking change the oil and switch back to 87 and see what happens?

I'm pretty sure the switching gas shouldnt be a problem cause on my snowmobile i usually run 93 due to high performance parts but if the price is a lot more i run 87 no problems.

I had the same thing happen to me a couple years ago, I took the actuator out, cleaned it, one of the screens fell out, I put it back in the voy and it ran even worse. Went to the dealership and bought a new one for like $90.00 Ran perfect after that. I think you can get them cheaper online, but I needed it asap.

I tried changing the oil and all that stuff, but it didn't work. replacing the the actuator is very easy.

Where is the actuator? My engine light came on again and I suspect it's the same again (will check first). Still 50% right now on oil life
