Hello and thank you for using Just answer! I'm Billy and i will assist you with this. Feel free to ask if you need any further info.

Billy :

This basically is a problem caused by the VVT system (variable valve timing).

Billy :

The VVT system essentially would retard and advance the camshaft, to get the optimal valve opening throughout the whole range (RPM)

Billy :

I will include the detailed description and operation of the system, as well as the check procedure, so you check accordingly:
