When diagnosing the Continuously Variable Valve Timing (CVVT) system for rough idling, poor acceleration, camshaft timing misalignment-related trouble codes, misfire-related trouble codes and/or other related symptoms, it may be required to inspect the Oil Control Valve (OCV) for proper operation.

OCV COIL RESISTANCE SPECIFICATION
OCV SUPPLIER COIL RESISTANCE AT 68 DEG. F
Denso 6.9 - 7.9 Ohms
Delphi 6.7 - 7.7 Ohms
1. Measure the resistance between the OCV power and signal terminals
Denso (6.9 - 7.9 Ohms)
Delphi (6.7 - 7.7 Ohms)
Check if the OCV operates normally by providing 12V power
Open circuit - replace the OCV
Below specified range or zero
Short circuit - replace the OCV
2. Check if the OCV operates normally by providing 12V power.
IMPORTANT: Careful attention is necessary to avoid a short circuit when providing the OCV with 12V power. Spacing between the OCV power and signal terminals is very narrow. Use suitable connections to prevent shorting of the test power supply.
3. When 12V power is provided to the OCV, the OCV must move forward as shown in the following photo.
4. If the OCV does not move forward, inspect for a foreign object (such as an aluminum chip.....example C) that may be jammed inside the OCV. Blow out the foreign object using compressed air and verify that the fault is corrected. If there is no damage to the OCV, do not replace the OCV.
