Hi.

P1382 is effectively pointing at a bad VCT solenoid. You need to lift valve cover and remove the belt to reach and replace the solenoid.Belt and cam shaft must come out. The belt must be removed and refitted using a special Ford tool.

Here the tool

The solenoid is part 32 in the diagram below :

Here timing belt procedure. The cams must be held in place using a special tool:

  • remove the valve cover
  • Put the belt on the sprockets
  • Tighten the belt tensioner
  • Loosen sprockets
  • Set the cam tool in place as shown in picture:.

SOURCE: 2000 contour hesitates only at 1/4 tank of gas

My guess would be dirty fuel tank. Possibly clogged fuel pump strainer.

I would like to know the electrical resistance of the vct solinoids and the camshaft angle sensors


Do you have a professional scanner, not a code reader? The scanner will give you the vales and if the senders are synchronized. we have found the values of ohms to be ambiguous due to oil infiltration modifying the readings. The vct solenoid is either on or off.
Good luck

2000 ford contour number 1 and 4 cylinders running lean and number 2 and 3 running rich. Has a rough idle and hard time accelerating.


Have the fault codes read. Replace faulty items. Use only
genuine items as replacement as non-genuine are not always compatible with the OEM fitted CPU units. This results in the fault codes not cancelling out.

P1380 - Misfire Detected Rough Road Data Not Available

The comprehensive component monitor (CCM) monitors the VCT circuit to the PCM for high and low voltage. If the voltage falls below a calibrated limit a calibrated amount of time during testing, the test fails.

Possible Causes:
  • Open or short in the VCT circuit.
  • Open VPWR circuit.
  • Damaged PCM
  • Open or short in the VCT solenoid valve.

  • Possible Solutions:
    DTC P1380 is a VCT circuit check. Testing should include wires, solenoid coil, and the PCM.
