    Hello, I’ve had a p1009 code for a while. I’ve tested and cleaned the solenoid, the strainer, and changed the timing chain/tensioner. I’m assuming it’s the actuator. Is there anyway to check it before ordering a new one? I’m not hearing the typical grinding noise, and the engine runs fine.

    Brand: Honda

    Hello. First I assume you checked the basic things like ensuring you use the right motor oil type, newly made oil change and have a good oil level.

    It could be a faulty actuator, but from what I can find it seems quite mechanical so would double check all other things first.

    Would rather test the solenoid with a scanner to see if it’s opening and closing like it should

    I found a service bulletin related to the issue, but it seems that only cars from 2005 and above are affected, anyways here it is if it could help somehow:

    The oil was fine but I went ahead and changed it. Code still came back.

    Also I tested the solenoid using the battery and it opened and closed as it should.

     

    Yeah I saw the service bulletin, which made me question if it could be the actuator. It just seems odd it isn’t grinding, and isn’t apart of the typically affected vehicles.
