Engine idles smooth but when I put it in drive it Backfires and stalls
Oil light came on at the same time a little knocking or ticking from the top of the motor so I parked the car. Had a computer hooked up to it and it says that the variable timing valve was bad. Will that keep oil from motor and because of that I have this problem?
It can block oil flow. Also found a TSB on the Constant Variable Valve Timing Control Valve. It indicates that the use of an aftermarket oil filter flow rates differ and may affect the CVVT system performance.
The valve itself should not keep oil from the lower portion of the engine.
