Re: P1354 - VVT (Variable Valve Timing) System Malfunction

You need a valve replacement brotherman! Cleaning it wont solve the prob permanently, it will still giv u a brain freeze. Also l think you should mind the type of oil you are running as most gurus on the site advice for synthetic 5w 30 or 5w 40.

ATF deep stick

Hi Guys

Hope u doin great.

This might sound a bit silly but im havin trouble re-inserting back my ATF deep stick, it seems something is blocking it from going down. Is it normal that l should push it down with so much force?.

Please help a brotherman asap.


Cheers!!!

Re: Misfire at 3000rpm when warm

My guess is its the valve that goes into the top of the engine on the intake side of the motor right next to the cam. That is the vvti selenoid which has gone bad.

Re: Altezza misfiring and shutting down at low rev
