|blkSVTfocus||I've got an '04 SVTF and I'm waiting on my 3rd solenoid. Car threw code # P1380.... This whole VCT stuff is really beginning to get old. Any ideas...bad replacement, shorted out harness, PCM issue???|

|kylebal||this tsb is exactly what is wrong with my car and i brought it to my svt ford dealership and its been there for two weeks now and i had to pay $700 for a new timing belt cause they thought that was the problem well it wasnt now he is just guessing on it i dont think he knows what he is doing because i no us techs are trained to look for tsbs if you come to a problem like this(i am in training at wyotech). I know there are ford techs on here so i would like to know if there is away to get my money back for there miss diagnose and what should i do since this tech cant find the problem?|

I actually did a How-To on changing your own Valve Cover Gasket and VCT Solenoid...pretty simple DIY.

|dpm2000bolt||WEll I am another one that just had the VCT replace and along with throttle body (sticky throttle reponse) and while it was in I had them check TSB and there is a recall out for corrosive states that the rear door latches need replaced I thinks since I have the ZX5. I only have 30000 on my and the VCT made the engine light come on and ran rough. My dealership acted like idoits when I said anything about mods so mine has stayed bone stock|

|finalley||Just for reference and an alternative repair, Tom at focus-power has designed a VCT eliminator for I think a 100 bucks.|

Correct me if I'm wrong, but at the bottom of the TSB it stated that it was also covered under the emissions warranty - doesn't that extend out to like 5 or 6 years and 100,000 miles?

Ford legal can have all the money in the world to throw at it, but it's cheaper for them to keep a class action lawsuit off their hands by just saying "yes"
especially since it's a well documented issue with SVTFs and has a TSB out for it. They don't release TSBs because people who have heavily modded cars are having issues, they do it because ALL the cars do.
Anyways I had this same thing done, but I don't think it was a TSB at the time. When did they release this?

|EURO04SVT||We are pretty cool with it here. Its not good to turn away money, FMC doesnt know whats done to the car. Its the ass service manager. If it was cams or cam gears that has a direct effect with VCT I would understand but UDPs have no real direct role with VCT at all.|
