Question about 1998 Ford Contour
Im not sure what to do about this mabee come one could help me if it wasn't fuel injected i would now how to fix it but its not.
P1381 is normally caused by
There is a TSB out no 99-13-8 where you have to use a breakout box and jump pins 44 (pin 45 if vehicle has a returnless fuel sytem) and pin 103 while engine is at 2500 rpm to try and cycle the VCT solenoid and if it changes then just change the oil and filter.
If not then either the solenoid is bad or debris is lodged in the orffices.
How it actually works is the camshaft gear is advanced or retarded by varying oil pressure to it controlled by the solenoid. The oil galleries are very small and are easily stopped up.
