What is the Variable Valve Timing (VVT) Solenoid all about?

Variable valve timing (VVT) helps to provide smoother idling, better power delivery for everyday needs, improved fuel economy, and superior emissions control. In order to achieve all of these tasks, your VVT system requires a number of different components including the variable valve timing solenoid. The VVT solenoid is responsible for changing the position of the camshafts in the engine. It works on oil pressure, and can either advance or retard cam position to provide the right performance from the engine. Each camshaft is equipped with a VVT solenoid, which is capable of altering the supply of oil pressure to the camshaft depending on the speed and load of the engine. If the VVT solenoid is not working properly, the Check Engine light will come on and your engine will perform noticeably worse.

Keep in mind:

  • The most common cause for VVT solenoid problems is dirty oil, which clogs the screen that sits between the solenoid and the VVT pressure switch.
  • If the solenoid doesn’t operate, the VVT system will remain disengaged, which can adversely impact engine performance, fuel economy and more.

How it's done:

  • The faulty variable valve timing actuator (VVT) solenoid is located and identified
  • The variable valve timing actuator (VVT) solenoid is removed
  • The new variable valve timing actuator (VVT) solenoid is installed
  • The engine is tested with a scanner for proper variable valve timing actuator (VVT) solenoid operation
  • The vehicle is road tested and checked for proper variable valve timing actuator (VVT) sensor operation

Our recommendation:

Because the solenoid is located at the camshaft (near the VVT switch), it cannot be inspected on a regular basis. The only time it will be inspected is if you are experiencing problems with the VVT system, or the Check Engine light illuminates and the computer provides a camshaft position or VVT system related code. If you do experience variable valve timing issues, have one of our expert mechanics diagnose and repair the issue.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Variable Valve Timing (VVT) Solenoid?

  • Vehicle gets poor fuel economy
  • Engine performance is diminished
  • Check Engine light is on

How important is this service?

If your vehicle is equipped with a variable valve timing system, it needs to operate as designed for proper performance and fuel efficiency. If your vehicle’s VVT solenoid is faulty, have it replaced as soon as possible to regain your lost performance.

Ram ProMaster 2500 V6-3.6L - Pre-purchase Car Inspection - Arlington, Texas
Joaquin Andrew is an amazing mechanic. We would’ve been in a world of problems that was allegedly “under warranty” had Joaquin not checked our vehicles. He is extremely knowledgeable and a really nice, trustworthy guy. We can not thank him enough for his inspections and will definitely recommend him to others. Do not purchase a car first without him checking it first.

Ram ProMaster 2500 V6-3.6L - Brake Pads Replacement (Front) - Tampa, Florida
On time / early, done well within expectations and as far as I can tell did a great job at the task to replace the brake pads. Provided insight on other issues and was upbeat about getting it done. Made for a most welcome experience with YourMechanic.

Ram ProMaster 2500 L4-3.0L Turbo Diesel - Strut Assembly Replacement (Front) - Fernandina Beach, Florida
I was hesitant to book through YourMechanic because I knew nothing about it prior to finding it through an internet search, were the reviews even real? Well this review is real because I took a chance and Booked Brian based on his very good reviews. I have a RAM Promaster 2500 Diesel commercial van that has challenged even the RAM dealerships that I have previously used for service. The strut installation required removing parts of the dash in order to access bolts at the top of the strut assemblies. My initial skepticism of Brian and YourMechanic led my to download detailed instructions about how to remove the dash assemblies. When asked, Brian indicated that he didn't need the instructions. I let him continue, fully expecting him to eventually ask for the directions for this unique installation. Before I knew it, Brian had neatly removed the necessary parts that allowed him to access the required bolts; Brian's method was actually more effective than the method in my downloaded instructions. Brian did such a great job on my suspension that I booked him for the rest of the day to replace my rear brakes. My wife's car was also making noises and Brian diagnosed the issue very quickly. Finding a reliable and knowledgeable mechanic can be difficult. I've now found one in Brian and will continue to use Brian as needed in the future. In fact I plan to book him soon to service our other vehicle. I highly recommend Brian.

It would idle high then chug then level out the moment you put it in gear it would chug and die. initially replaced coils and plugs (ran better for a day then got worse). next i got 3 codes (p0300 p0106 p0171). Replaced MAP sensor and [camshaft](/topics-camshaft-chevy/) postition Sensor. seems to stay running now but chugs when you put it into gear but does not die.
