Very possibly the VCT solenoid, but cant be 100% on that.

Its right alongside the crank pulley, so doubt that its the camshaft VCT - there's four of them above the camshafts.

The workshop manual shows it as a oil pressure control solenoid. Fault testing sheet also confirms that its responsible for oil pressure readings.

My guess is that this is the selonoid that controls to flow of oil to the front or back side od the VCT actuator. It's controlled by the PCM.

The operation on the selonoid causes a differential change in oil pressure to rotate the camshaft actuator to an advanced or retarded position.

So there is actual oil pressure reading available through OBD now, or still an on/off switch?

That's sounds more plausible, based on the physical location of the device, down at the crankshaft.

 

My guess is that this is the selonoid that controls to flow of oil to the front or back side od the VCT actuator. It's controlled by the PCM.

The operation on the selonoid causes a differential change in oil pressure to rotate the camshaft actuator to an advanced or retarded position.

That's a description of the four devices located at the camshafts.

I have a question, the dealership posted a service reminder on my windshield for 5K miles - in the event of a warranty claim, can Ford refute the claim based on actual service intervals being 10K miles vs the dealership sticker being 5K miles?

Dealership sticker is meaningless.   That's just their suggestion on when you get your next service.  Has nothing to do with warranty claims.

Well all I see on the Diagnostics and Testing info is that it'll throw codes as follow: Open, Low, High, Performance/Stuck Off. So maybe?
