    Hi everyone, I have an 09 Adrenaline with the 4.6. I only have 73,000 kilometres on her. Has anyone had any issues with their Variable Valve Timing (VVT) Solenoid sticking? Keeps the engine retarded after coming to a stop. Then when you get going again it seems to go back to normal after a few miles. No codes showing. Not sure what it could be.
