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

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

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

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'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???
