2002 ZX2 - Engine Code 1383

I have a 2000 ZX2 automatic with 78000 miles on it. Check engine light was coming on and off for a period, and remained on so I took it into the dealership. Engine code 1383 (Variable Cam Timing Retard) was the diagnosis, and approx repair bill was $1500. Took it to a local garage, and he took a look at some a lot of sludge buildup on the cam sensor etc.. and speculated the engine may have some sludge buildup as well. I've noticed a lack of power at times coming out of a complete stop.

any troubleshoot this guy before? any recommendations?
