Default VVT Solenoid (OCV) Replacement DIY

VVT Solenoid (OCV) Replacement DIY -

Symptoms: Momentary Engine Lag (like a shifting of gears that only lasts 1-2 seconds)
Hard Brakes in the last few seconds of a stop - like stepping on a brick
Low, Rough Idle - feels like it is going to stall
Inability to Use Over Drive - going 65mph with 4500 RPM ... won't shift to lower RPMs

Lexmex.
is there a DIY on how to replace head lights. I have not seen it on here after looking several times. I tried this past weekend but could not find the last bolt.......plus my fingers froze in the 23 degree weather. I thought I would ask on here before I try again.
Thanks
