The Check Engine Light may come on due to failure of the Variable Camshaft Timing (VCT) solenoid. The VCT solenoid will need to be replaced to correct this concern.

car stalled. Restarted and engine ran rough. Check engine light was on. Dealer replaced both VCT solenoids under warranty. somewhat concerned that this happened with so little mileage. Also not happy that the dealer did not have the part in stock and I had to wait 2 days for it to come in.

car started with coming to an intersection when I pressed on the gas nothing happened car was still running and was able to steer to side of road and it was like missing or shuddering. turned it off and started right up. It ran fine for about a month then started doing it again every 2-3 days. took to dealership they replaced the throttle control car ran fine for about 5 days then started again. took it back to dealership and they are replacing the VCT. I hope this fixes it, I really like my car.

I was coming off of a light when suddenly the car lost nearly all power. The wrench light came on and the car was in limp mode. I was able to get into a parking lot fairly close. I turned the car off and checked all the connections under the hood, but saw nothing wrong. I started the car and it acted normal again. I immediately when home and called for road side assistance. They picked up the car the following afternoon and determined it was the VCT solenoids. Both were replaced and I had my car the following day.
