It'snot inour manual but that doesn'tmean anything it still may need to go to a pro for that as the scanner he has can retime the cam/cranks sensor problem so it may be related.

Do you think it can be the variable cam timing solenoid? Or computer has to get reprogrammed

Teh tsb says it gets debris int eh vct solenoid so they reccomend drivning it to make vct engage and see if it goes away otherwise you need to perform test hk 10 which is thisif not this then you have to go to hk 11 then 12 I will include both
NOTE: Some vehicles require higher RPM s and loads to actuate the VCT system than others. The VCTADVERR PID, VCT_INT_DIF PID or VCT_EXH_DIF PID should be close to zero whether actuating or not. During rapid VCT movements, the VCTADVERR PID, VCT_INT_DIF PID or VCT_EXH_DIF PID may momentarily deviate from zero. NOTE: For a symptom based concern, monitor all applicable PIDs during this step. Clear the PCM DTCs. For Escape, Expedition, F-150 6. Toll, F-Series Super Duty 6. Tool, Flex, Fusion, Milan, MKS, MKT, MKZ, Navigator, and Taurus:For DTCs P0011, P0012, P0016, P052A and P052B, Access the PCM and monitor the VCTADV (ANGL) PID. Access the PCM and monitor the VCTADVERR (ANGL) PID. For DTCs P0018, P0021, P0022, P052C and P052D, Access the PCM and monitor the VCTADV2 (ANGL) PID. Access the PCM and monitor the VCTADVERR2 (ANGL) PID. For all others:For DTCs Poa, P0011, P0012, P0016, P052A and P052B, Access the PCM and monitor the VCT_INT_ACT1 (ANGL) PID. Access the PCM and monitor the VCT_INT_DIF1 (ANGL) PID. For DTCs Pob, P0014, P0015, P0017, P054A and P054B, Access the PCM and monitor the VCT_EXH_ACT1 (ANGL) PID. Access the PCM and monitor the VCT_EXH_DIF1 (ANGL) PID. For DTCs P0018, P0021, P0022, P052C and P052D, Access the PCM and monitor the VCT_INT_ACT2 (ANGL) PID. Access the PCM and monitor the VCT_INT_DIF2 (ANGL) PID. For DTCs P0019, P0024, P0025, P054C and P054D, Access the PCM and monitor the VCT_EXH_ACT2 (ANGL) PID. Access the PCM and monitor the VCT_EXH_DIF2 (ANGL) PID. Drive the vehicle while exercising the throttle to generate VCT movement. Does the VCTADV PID, VCT_INT_ACT PID or VCT_EXH_ACT PID indicate VCT movement while the VCTADVERR PID or VCT_INT_DIF PID or VCT_EXH_DIF PID maintain close to zero?
If nonoe of these work after doing tests it reccomends chek ing oil pressure up to snuff then replacing cam phaser. Myself i'd drive it for a while like that and see if it wold clear by itself as the engine may have been sitting for a while and may be sticky like oil wise. Make sure to get it good and warm like driving it 20 miles or so city/freeway combined.

If you ead ALL of my last reply you would see how long to drive it. And I wold only replace the vct as a very last resort checking allother things first like the instructions I gave you which include the pic I sent. Now clicking onit I see it didn't turn out lol that said to replace vct. Drive it and see what happesn the vct can be exspensive and you are really redoing the timing chain when you do that.
