timing might jump

oil might be low, u need oil pressure to advance/retard timing - variable valve solenoid might stuck on/off position because of that,

 

check timing marks first, let me know

Oil just changed 4 weeks prior. since then had to replace coil number 3 and now this. oil level is okay. vehicle runs normal. I read possible oil flush may correct problem? timing belt is original.
