Valve Timing Solenoid?

Does a 2001 Sentra with the 1.8 engine have a valve timing solenoid, and if so where is it located at on the engine?

My brother in law has this car and it shows erratic rpm gauge, it's been using too much gas, has low power and has a gassy smell. It idles good, but seems to fall on it's face a little when you give it gas. He has replace crankshaft sensor, both cam sensor, computer and without solving the problem. He's wondering if it has the valve timing solenoid and if so, where would he find it on the engine? Thanks.

Yes, there is. It is on the left side of # 1 cylinder if facing the engine.
