I am getting P0011 - bank 1 only.A local garage removed oil control solendoid bank 1 (against the firewall) and showed me that the coil was open with a DVM. Infinite ohms=open coil so. The solenoid is bad, I have a new one do I have to remove the intake manifold to replace the intake valve timing control solenoid valve. I just want the procedure to replace the bank one valve. Can it be done without remove the intake?
