Default Engine Light on - Variable Cam Timing Solenoid (?)

The engine light came on a few weeks ago. After a few days it went out (before I had a chance to see my mechanic). It then came BACK on a few days later, only to go OUT again a few days later.... (you get the idea)

From what I can feel, the truck runs fine. Having said that, I noticed that when the check engine light is on the "ECO" does not come on regardless of how gently and economically I drive. Although I understand that the "ECO" icon isn't a definite sign the VVT is working, it usually is a good indication, I believe.

Anyhow, my mechanic had the Ram today and said it was a "Variable Cam Timing Solenoid", and he has one on order for me for Monday.

Has anyone had this issue and could there be more to it? Any thoughts or input would be appreciated.
