So I'm new to this site. My wife and I drive a 2016 Cruze LS, 1.8L 4 DR, Automatic transmission. I recently took it to a Firestone mechanic shop where they replaced both the exhaust/intake VVT solenoids 2X (the tubular ones). https://www.amazon.com/Variable-Valve-Timing-Solenoids-G1156V/dp/B07BBNXZSD/ref=asc_df_B07BBNXZSD/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=241914879076&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=9758664983964976089&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9030798&hvtargid=pla-493886355823&psc=1

These are not the exact solenoids but for more of a reference. They also did an oil change. The check engine light came back after about 40 miles of driving. I saw the video where the guy replaced the camshaft position actuator.

Has the above actuator in the video been removed or upgraded on newer model Cruzes or am I completely missing something?

That vid is a 1.4, you have a 1.8.

That video isn't relevant to your car.

I've seen aftermarket solenoids have out of spec resistance, The p0011/p0014 can set due to low oil pressure. Failed camshaft sprockets, failed ECM, and connection issues. Sounds like Firestone just shotgunned solenoids
