Hi im kevin any other sympthoms ? Or codes present ?
Ok the code points to a correlation issue so its basically saying that the cams and the crank arent always in time with each other compared to what its expecting to see .how many mikes have you covered ?
I dont offer phone service im happy to continue online
How many miles have you covered ? Any rattle from cold start ?
To be honest the code and milage would make me want to check engine timing . Its highly possible timing chain has jumped or is stretched
Did you read reply
Not really all the solonoid does is control oil flow into vvt pulley
Ok i would go back over what youve done before going any further .mabye remove cam cover and check internals and check the chain for slack
Dont use timing lights any more unfortunatly .you would need to purchase engine locking tools .these tools lock into engine to ensure correct timing
Without the correct tools its going to be very hard to confirm that mechanically everything is in time .the fact you have rough running and a correlation issue woukd all point to a timing fault
Its a couple or hours labour for someone with the correct tools to confirm this
