so are you getting VVT errors?, if yes, why skip that fact?
most VVT have solenoids and sensors. On v6 two times this.
scan it and report the errors, so we can see why you ask.
if VVT issues, i strongly recommend a real FSM.
if in uSA is ok
if not , a real FSM for your car, matched.

Error code p1384 and 1396


Possible Causes:
- Bank 2 VVT solenoid valve to PCM PWM drive circuit fault.
- Bank 2 VVT actuator oil supply fault.
- Bank 2 VVT actuator stuck.

The biggest issues with vvts are oil supply issues. Useally debris like oil sludge in oil pickup screen, loose bearing clearances as an engine wears, and oil passages blocked/partially blocked to and in vvts. The first (i always shoot for cheapest potential likely fix) use a good engine flush(2 bottle for our higher than normal capacity engines) follow directions on bottle. Change oil and switch to a 20-50w. Leave out 1 quart and add 1 qt auto ****** atf(highly detergent, more so than engine oil and wont hurt anything) while you have overly ******** cam codes, it may be an issue of apply and blockage that keeps pressure in vvts too long when supposed to release. Most times its ******** cams( like the 1 i am doing right now....try this first and go from there, rememebr to clears codes and give time, you may have to clear codes a few times as it may continue to reset.

Jaguar s-type pulled code p1380 now you press gas and the car dosen't want to go

P0066 = air assisted fuel injection (AAI) control circuit malfunction.
P1380 = VVT Solenoid circuit malfunction bank 1
P1385 = VVT Solenoid circuit malfunction bank 2
P1380 Variable cam timing solenoid A malfunction. Bank 1 cam solenoid located underneath intake manifold. The bank 1 solenoid is under the passenger side valve cover on the V8. On the V6 it's under the valve cover as well but the intake needs to be removed.
Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

I was in my sister's 2004 Chevy Trailblazer and it was acting up. First the service engine soon light has been on. I was driving and the engine started revving up and down then it stopped accelerating...

The VVT (variable Valve Timing) solenoid may be dirty and will need to be cleaned or replaced. Poor maintenance (lack of oil change) will cause carbon and sludge to accumulate on the VVT screen causing the VVT to stick which will cause the issues your experiencing.
You may get lucky by trying to clean the VVT by adding a can of Seafoam to your engine oil and running it in there for the next 250 miles and then giving the Trailblazer oil and filter service with the recommended 5W-30 weight oil, anything heavier may cause the VVT not to function correctly as it is now.
Start with the simple and add Seafoam (Auto Zone, Part Source) carries the product. Service the engine oil after 250 miles, and at worst you may have to replace the VVT solenoid which is simple to do. Keep me posted if you have to replace the VVT.
Thank you for using fixya and be safe
