Chevrolet Equinox Variable Camshaft Timing Solenoid
About Variable Camshaft Timing Solenoid
Variable Camshaft Timing (VCT) is a timing technology developed by Ford for automotive variable valves. In contrast to fixed camshaft engines, this allows for improved engine efficiency, decreased emissions, and increased fuel consumption. The hydraulic valves are electronically operated and lead the high-pressure oil motor into the camshaft phaser cavity. Such oil monitoring solenoids are bolted onto the cylinders to the front of the engine next to the camshaft phasers.
What is the purpose of Variable Camshaft Timing Solenoid?
This allows the required amount of oil supply, allowing the engine to offer better performance and fuel efficiency. It is an information processing framework for the operation of a variable electronic system with a variable valve timing solenoid. In the event that this VVT solenoid is out of order, unsuitable lubrication can damage the gear and the timing chain a lot and interrupt the gear.
How Variable Camshaft Timing Solenoid Works?
The variable camshaft timing is used in the lower speed range to maximize engine torque and control in the high-speed range. By using VCT, we can control closure and opening times of the input and exhaust valves.
Where is Variable Camshaft Timing Solenoid Located?
Typically close to the front of the valve cover is the variable valve timing solenoid located on the front of the engine. Try to look at the solenoid and help it to match its shape. The connector is the open end of the variable valve timing solenoid.
