Hi Eddie - the Variable valve timing solenoid is the solenoid which engages the different valve timing for high engine rpm's.

Iam guessing it will be mounted on one side of the cylinder head.

The Honda VTEC system uses a solenoid valve, which has been known to stick if cheap Oil has been used and/or the Oil has not been changed regularly. Once you locate the vvti solenoid it may be worth trying dismantling it and giving it a clean inside - it may be sticking.
