Got the codes read.. Now what?

Some of you may have read my other thread about my car occasionally stalling with the ac on high when I hit the clutch. Well it did it twice again today and I got the codes read again, and this time I got a p0012 fault code..

intake (A) camshaft position timing over-retarded (Bank 1)

I have read up on a few things and it maybe related to the VANOS.. Specifically the solenoid.. has anyone before encountered this code before and solved it? Please weigh in. Could be a sensor as well? Thanks for the advice.
