are you there?
Expert:  Edward replied 1 year ago.

Yes, I am here. With those codes on this particular car, I am in agreement, that likely you would need to really look at the cam closely, and replace the CVVT hub. As well as check the vehicle for any vacuum leaks. How many miles approximately are on it?
