A Closer Look: Variable Valve Timing (VVT) Solenoids and Sprockets

Variable Valve Timing or VVT reduces emissions and increases performance and fuel economy on many of today’s newer engines. But the high-tech system is prone to failure, often from lack of engine oil circulation, or moving parts that wear out or fail electronically. Signs of a faulty VVT System include:

  • Rough Idle
  • Stalling
  • Lack of Power
  • Engine noise
  • Check Engine Light

With more than 200 part numbers and counting, Intermotor offers comprehensive coverage for this high-tech category. Let’s take a look:

  • Intermotor's VVT Solenoids feature hardened steel componentry that limits sticking during sludge buildup, (beat) as well as premium O-rings and gaskets that maintain proper oil pressure and prevent oil leaks.
  • Intermotor's VVT Sprockets (also known as cam phasers) feature OE-matching sprocket tooth profiles to ensure quiet operation.

What’s more, all Intermotor VVT components undergo stringent quality control measures, including in-depth design and testing.
