Part name

Function

Hydraulic variable valve timing actuator

The hydraulic variable valve timing actuator operates according to the hydraulic pressure and changes the phases of the exhaust camshaft.

Electric variable valve timing actuator

The electric variable valve timing actuator changes the phases of the intake camshaft.

Electric variable valve timing motor/driver

Operates the electric variable valve timing actuator based on the signals from the PCM.

OCV

Operated by current (duty signal) from the PCM. Controls the hydraulic oil passages to the hydraulic variable valve timing actuator.

Intake camshaft position sensor

Sends the intake camshaft position signal to the PCM.

Exhaust camshaft position sensor

Sends the exhaust camshaft position signal to the PCM.

Crankshaft position sensor

Sends the crankshaft position signal to the PCM.


Operation

At engine start

Light/medium load range

* Energy loss which occurs from each type of resistance corresponding to intake and exhaust is called pumping loss.

High load range

Valve Mechanism
Outline A DOHC type valve system has been adopted and consists of four valves (two intake valves and two exhaust valves) per cylinder for a total of 16 valves operated by two camshafts. ...

Main Fuse
Purpose If electric current of the specified value or more flows to each fuse, the fuse melts due to heat generation to protect the systems and parts downstream of the fuse. Function If electric current to each fuse is the specified value or more, the fuse melts due to h ...

Throttle Position (TP) Sensor
Purpose/Function Detects the throttle valve opening/closing condition, which operates in accordance with the accelerator pedal operation, as basic information for mainly determining the fuel injection amount. Detects the throttle valve opening/closing condition, which operates i ...

Heater Core Inspection
1. Inspect the heater core for damage, cracks, and water leakage. If there is any malfunction, replace the heater core. 2. Visually inspect the fins for bending. If there is any bending, use the end of a flathead screwdriver to straighten the fins. 3. Visually inspect ...
