Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'm here to help get your problem solved.

Expert:  Dan replied 1 month ago.

This is a common problem caused by a failed camshaft adjuster which is located under the valve cover between the two cam gears. This is about a $500 job to have done at a shop. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.
