1999 Lexus ES300 with 137,000 miles is running poorly and set code P1349 - the intake valve timing control ckt.

I don't know if this is the right or left side of the engine but I think it is bank 1.

Where is this solenoid located on this car for bank 1.

I've had a few of these that were bad control valves.
Bank one is the rear bank.

It was the oil control solenoid. Bank 1 and 2 are mirror images of each other - the same except for a connector tab. Lexus could have done the job with one part and reduced inventory. I believe there's a 10th circle in Hell for auto designers.

Thanks for the help and the picture. Less than 30 minutes from start to finish.
