Hi Everyone,

Due to having an issue with my 1st cylinder misfiring on my BA XR6, I am working through a list of items, and would like to know where the VCT Solenoid is location on the engine.
I am fairly sure it's easily removed but I don't really know where to look.

Any help would be appreciated! :)

Thanks!

From what I have just read in the WM it isn't just a simple unbolt and instal.
Have you made sure that it ISN'T the coils or plugs? They can have problems with the TPS as well.

Is the Rocker a hard thing to get off?

Sorry,

Checking back through some of my old posts.
Yeah, the plugs and coils have been replaced with brand newies. :)
It shouldn't tube the TPS because a power balance revealed the misfire exists in one cylinder, the S would just cause unstable idle, not a misfire? Right?
