Being that there are 2 cams and the system is a VCT (Variable Camshaft Timing), there are a couple of ways that the cam could've got jammed. 1) A Lifter is jammed. 2) There hasn't been enough oil pressure to the heade and the cam ate into the head and locked itself. Try removing and inspecting the cam instead of trying to turn it. ... Jerry RUSLERS@aol.com
