Default P0017 trouble code

Ok i just did a scan on my truck and came up with the P0017 trouble code, and i got this description when i looked it up.
The powertrain control module (PCM) uses the crankshaft position (CKP) sensor and the exhaust camshaft position (CMP) sensor information to monitor the correlation between the crankshaft and camshaft positions. If the PCM detects a CMP sensor pulse occurs during the incorrect CKP, DTC P0017 will set.

occasionally the engine light comes on but after a while of driving the light goes away. What can cause this? malfunctioning sensor or a miss timed engine? cause i doubt its a miss timed engine since it runs perfectly. Any help would be appreciated.
I've also been doing research on the forum about this and have come up with some info. But not enough to help pin point whats causing the problem.

Well for about 60 to 70 bucks it would be worth it to replace both sensors. I would start with the exhaust camshaft sensor. Then drive it for a couple of days before changing the crankshaft sensor. First i would pull the Camshaft Postion Actuator and take look at it. There should be four screens on it. If one of the screens has fallen off there is your problem.

Not a problem. GM only part. List for about 105 dollars, wine and cry a little should get it for about 92 bucks. They should have them on hand due to the fact that they do go out quite often.

Ok. Having the same code problem but have had it for over a year and never had an actual problem out of my 2006 4cyl automatic until I took it to have new plugs, engine flush, new oil, and fuel system cleaned out. Now It has started sputtering while idling.

I have changed both the cam and crank sensors (the crank sensor appeared slightly burnt with a screwed up ring). I also pulled the actuator to inspect it. All the screens are there and nothing appears damaged. there was a little debris on it but nothing clogging the screens, blew it off by blowing on it. Truck seems to have some of its power back but it still sputters.

I really do not want to spend money on the actuator and it not be the problem though I have to make a 1900 mil drive Friday.
