Pico In Cylinder for the win

I am using a Microsoft surface 3....

Re: 2013 Chrysler Town & Country 3.6L Pentastar P0018

I would look hard at the Oil control valves, and possibly the Advance Mechanism. I had a similar issue post timing chain replacement. We had replaced All the oiler bolts. And found that the replacements had 2 holes missing so they did not control advance like they were supposed to. But based on this...
