Variable valve timing (VVT) solenoids can fail due to low engine oil levels and/or irregularly changed engine oil or filters. Standard® VVT Solenoids, a high-quality replacement, feature hard anodized components to ensure proper performance and long service life.
Every variable valve timing system is slightly different. But following these three general rules will ensure proper performance.
The GM 2.4L and Toyota 3.0L and 3.3L are known to have high failure rates for VVT solenoids. Standard® has these applications covered.
Blue Streak® VVT Solenoids feature improvements over the original, including hard anodized steel componentry, welded filters and welded screen reinforcement. It’s this attention to detail that ensures precision operation, correct on-vehicle performance and a longer service life.
Blue Streak® VVT Solenoid Kits include two new premium Solenoids with quality O-rings and gaskets to help prevent oil leaks.
Blue Streak® has put together the highest quality Complete VVT Service Kit for high-OE-failure replacement opportunities. We also offer the highest quality, best-performing VVT Solenoid Kits in the industry.
Blue Streak® VVT420K - Everything needed for a complete job – solenoids, sprockets, timing chain, guide, tensioner, arm, seals, crankshaft wheel, and gaskets.
|1. VVT Sprocket (VVT500)||6. Drive Gear Sprocket|
|2. VVT Solenoids (VVT101)||7. Crankshaft Position Wheel|
|3. Timing Chain Tensioner||8. Crankshaft Seal|
|4. Timing Chains||9. Gaskets|
|5. Timing Chain Guide and Tensioner Arm|
The failure of VVT components can lead to rough idle, stalling, poor performance, damage and failure of other parts in the system. If one VVT solenoid or sprocket fails, it’s likely the others are nearing the end of their service life, too. Not only do we recommend replacing both solenoids and sprockets at the same time, we recommend replacing all related timing chain components in the VVT system with high-quality Blue Streak® VVT components for a complete job and to reduce comebacks.
