Diagnostic:

Check to see if the code returns without revving the engine. If it does then check the timing chain for possibly being stretched. If the code does not come back then manually operate the variable valve timing solenoid to see if the solenoid is sticking or the gear by seeing if the engine runs rough when the solenoid is not energized, indicating a sticking gear or bad solenoid.

Diagnostic:

Use a voltmeter to check the voltage on the IGF terminal. IGF is a White wire shared by all the ignition coils. There should be 5 volts present key on engine off.

If an ignition coil shorts out the IGF terminal, the Engine Control Module will not be able to see the IGF signal so all the codes will be set. If the failed coil is disconnected from the circuit the engine should start ok and run on remaining 5 cylinders. A bad coil could short out the 5 volt reference.

Solution:

-Repair/fix. Replace ignition coil (s)
