I changed the solenoid spool valve whole assembly cuase the screen was torn and full of crud because of head and valve job.but I still was told that I need the variable timing control valve which is shaped different the car runs fine then the mil light comes on and goes off.When its on the car runs erratically and that oblong one screw in it is the part they say I need it also has the same crud on it
