2004 Ford F-150

Engine Performance problem
2004 Ford F150 V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 0

The vehicle cam in with a bad engine knock, engine was replaced with a jasper reman. Truck started and drove fine until you put it under a hard load. Check engine light cam on with po22 cam 2 overretarded. Replaced solenoid and was told phaser is new, we also checked oil pressure and is within specs. We changed the oil with synthetic and problem still exists.

What engine does this one have? Also can you confirm this code? Bost are Pxxxx not Pxxx...?
HK15 KOER DTCS P0011, P1381, P0012, P1383, P0021, P1386, P0022 AND P1388:  CHECK the vehicle oil filter identification to make sure it is the proper type.  Engine at normal operating temperature.  Clear fault codes.  KOER Self Test.  CHECK KOER DTCs: Are DTCs P0011, P1381, P0012, P1383, P0021, P1386, P0022 or P1388 present? NOTE: Oil contamination in VCT systems can cause positioning errors. NOTE: VCT systems require an oil filter specific to the application. NOTE: CHECK the operation of the VCT solenoid and check for a stuck or sticking solenoid valve caused by contamination. If the valve is stuck, check the spider bracket for contamination prior to solenoid replacement.

Yes the code is poo22, We changed the oil 2 times with mobil 1. The code will set with koer test. We removed the vct solenoid to inspect it and the screens were clean, we replaced it any way. Oil filter is a motorcraft for this app. The engine is a 3valve 5.4l sohc. I have seen ones that had vct problems due to sludge but this is a reman engine with no miles on it. I also grounded the solnoid and it appears to be working fine. I pulled valve cover and inspected the phaser and appears to be in time. Not sure where to go next with this.

Did youi check the oil filter itself? It needs a specific type.
I am going to email you some testing info, let me know how you make out.

It turned out to be a bad cam actuator, they said it was new, but upon inspecting found it was indeed a used one
