OK guys I have another question, I have noticed that my Camshaft Position Actuator Solenoid seems to be leaking oil all over the place... It looks like it's coming out the end but I am not sure, it also seems to be in the plug itself. This can't be normal but I have had no one ask me or tell me about it while working on my truck. Over the years I have owned my TB it has been to 3 different GM dealers as well as oil change places and not one mentioned this "leak"

What is the deal with this? Do I have to buy a new one? or clean it up?

Thanks guys!!

New one. The core rotates and the o-ring that allows that to happen can deteriorate. Well-publicized over the years.
