Q: VVT solenoid issue/problem recurring

asked by on

I have had both of the VVT solenoids replaced now, originally in 2014, then one again last July & then another one just yesterday again b/c they said the part was faulty & under warranty ... ??? And it is still acting like it doesn't want to accelerate. This is my 3rd Pathfinder, so I know how it should act when driving it & it is like it doesn't have any pick up ... Any advice would be greatly appreciated (single mother/limited income) I just had an expensive visit & had the radiator, thermostat & both major belts replaced .... $$$

Thanks :-)
