I'm thinking what can cause this without giving me any codes? can a clogged injector do this, ? On the other hand once I start moving it drives fine
Expert:  BOBBYSS replied 9 months ago.

Most commonly on this engine it is either a clogged injector or an issue with the variable valve timing. Most of the time it is the timing as it tends to only cause this at idle.

How do I adjust the timing?
Expert:  BOBBYSS replied 9 months ago.

The valve timing is not adjustable. This is controlled by the computer. This only occurs if the valve timing solenoids are not functioning or if the oil pressure is low.
