yes also forgot to mention that the MIL light is on it can be reset but returns when start up
you are right that is not the answer I wanted so at the moment i am trying to get the codes sorted.
I have recieved the codes and they are
P1067 - Variable valve lift position motor relay - malfunction
P1015 - Wiring, variable valve lift position sensor, variable valve lift position motor relay, variable valve lift position motor, camshaft position (CMP) actuator, ECM.
It seems that the variable valve timing is not working and can be contributed to one or more of the above. Where would you start? where do i locate the Variable valve lift relay? or how do I test the actuator?
