Hello .. thanks for the donation .. much appreciated
If the car seems to be running OK .. I would have the light turned off (most independant garages will be able to do this) .. and drive the car to see if the code returns ? .. if the codes is returning immediately the do the following test's
DTC P1380, P1381 OR P1383: VARIABLE VALVE TIMING SOLENOID (RIGHT BANK)
Turn ignition off. Disconnect right Variable Valve Timing (VVT) solenoid harness connector. Measure resistance between VVT solenoid terminals. If resistance is 5-20 ohms, go to next step. If resistance is not 5-20 ohms, replace VVT solenoid and retest system.
Turn ignition on. Measure voltage between ground and VVT Solenoid harness connector Green/Orange wire. If voltage is more than 10 volts, go to next step. If voltage is 10 volts or less, repair power supply circuit and retest system.
Disconnect PCM harness connectors. Check continuity of White/Black wire between VVT solenoid harness connector and PCM harness connector PI-1 terminal No. 10. If continuity exists, go to next step. If continuity does not exist, repair open in White/Black wire and retest system.
Check continuity between ground and VVT solenoid harness connector White/Black wire. If continuity exists, repair short to ground and retest system. If continuity does not exist, replace PCM and retest system.
Hope this helps .. let me know
