Wait till you do the valve adjustment LOL that's a royal PITA...literally.
You probably need to change the valve assembly. Use OEM only, no dorman junk.Hi All, thanks for all the info!
I ordered and changed the gaskets for the solenoid, and everything was fine, until i got to highway speeds.
van threw a CEL - p3497 and ran poorly.
From some other posts i read it could be caused from bad oil pressure in the solenoid - maybe from over tightening.
So i found torque specs of:
Re-torqued and still threw the code - this time CEL flashing with a p0304 - pulled the plug and it looked caked in oil.
- 110 in/lbs for long bolt,
- 106 in/lbs for the 2 shorter
any suggestion on what to do or look at next?
PS - i hate this VCM BS - will be getting the VCMTuner once i have things stable again.
