Does oil advance the cam timing or retard it? And which would apply at lower RPMs? I've always thought it was my valve cover leaking, but maybe not...

Thanks! It came out nice, there were some oddity markings in the valve cover top side that I had to sand down, and if you look closely (in person) you can see they didn't get resolved entirely. Whoever had this car before me had no idea what they were doing and messed up so much stuff. Like I cant replace my grill lights because the last guy jammed them in there and spun it the wrong direction

In my case the leak was causing a retard in timing only because the solenoid wasn't seated correctly. I'm not sure entirely on general oil leaks through the valve cover gasket. Now that that one is fixed, my thermostat seems to be failing. Check engine light for failure to reach operable temperature, I don't remember the exact code, but it seemed to be common when I searched it here. Figured I might as well get the CFM housing and OEM t-stat with the higher temps

The picture of the puddle around the VCT solenoid looks quite familiar to me, it could be a valve cover gasket on mine, but I'm going to look into it. Did your car run fine at higher RPMs, anything above ~3800?

Yeah, after 3500-4000 it ran fine, it was only before that that it struggled. I tested by screwing in the solenoid and watching how flush it stayed the the block. In my case it lifted at the opposite side of the bolt, hopefully it helps you 👍
