Code p2563. I have the position sensor ordered. I will replace solenoid if that does not fix it. Then,, do i have to do anything else, or will the truck take care of it? Does anything need synced or positioned?

No i did not test it. I was feeling all smart when my code reader said the sensor was bad, so i ordered one right away,,then researched and found out it could be other things too. Too late to cancel order so it gets installed.

Is this an involved/difficult procedure to replace it? I am very mechanical, but no duramax experience.

No it's just one 12 point bolt that holds it in the turbo. Little bit of a pita but fairly simple. You can test yours with a multimeter to see if it's still good just do a search it should come up fairly easy. Like I said though don't buy a cheap one, I did once what a waste.

Here is a link showing how to do it. I've never took off the oil line to the turbo like it says but other wise it's straight forward https://www.dieselhub.com/maintenance/6.6-duramax-vgt-solenoid.html
