Oh, believe me: I get the money thing.
Those codes are pretty reliable. The solenoids are on top, up front. Takes a bit of wiggling and leverage to get them out, but otherwise itís pretty much as simple as it looks.
And, driving it that way wonít hurt anything. The ECM should deactivate VVT which will result in a slight power loss on an NA, more pronounced on a GXP. Either way, this is something that should be fixed but isnít super-urgent. Long term effects could include damage to emissions components (cats) and reduced fuel economy. May be others but thatís what comes to mind at the moment.
