P1330 CVVT Solenoid or is the Camshaft Actuator opening period which is too long.The Camshaft Reset Valve was actually quite easy and quick to replace (well less than 1 hours if one know what their doing). It is located under the Timing Belt cover/camshaft pulley. To gain access, you have to move the black plastic turbo pipes a bit out of the way. This requires removing the two turbo pipe screws closest to the radiator,and one turbo pipe screw mounted at the center of the turbo piping (it screws into a long metal clip on top of the piping). Then remove the hard rubber hose that connects to the turbo pipe closest to the windshield washer reservoir. The rubber tubing is fastened to the turbo pipe by a standard screw-type hose clamp. Pop off that rubber hose with a bit of effort. I would not try to pry it off, because you might break the plastic turbo pipe. Just use your hands and be 'persuasive'.
(If you have a non-turbo 2.9L, then the above two paragraphs don't apply.) There is no need to remove the long black plastic cover that covers the engine horizontally. You only have to remove the two Torx fasteners and two spring clips on the actual Timing Belt cover. Since the turbo piping is now loose, you can move it a bit out of the way to gain access to the two torx fasteners, then pop the spring clips and remove the Timing Belt cover.The Camshaft Reset Valve is at the top left under the Timing Belt cover. It is held in place by 4 bolts and has an electrical connector that also needs to be removed. Try to get the same unit with the same wiring, the new 'improved' unit looks slightly different and any requires cutting off the old connector on the engine harness and splicing in the new unit.
