Default Timing jumped or VANOS?

I have a smorgasbord of codes that triggered a CEL. As these all popped up at the same time, I'm sure they are all related. I am not sure where to start then whether it may be the solenoid pack, cam sensor, or anything else. Any thoughts or advice here? Last work that was done on the engine was rod bearings.


For some reason the picture shows up for me but not for anyone else. Heres the imgur link:

Dude, there is a problem with your image. The link you dropped says that it can't be displayed because it contains errors. I'm out.

Just click the link and then delete the ".jpg" at the end and it works perfectly

Has the car been driven before the codes came up? Check solenoid connection to make sure it's tight, clear codes and see what reappears.

Yes it had been driven before the codes came up. I checked the connection and cleared codes, but the CEL came up within 5 miles again.
