ACDelco Introduces GM Variable Valve Timing Solenoids

Jan. 4, 2017

ACDelco is making General Motors Original Equipment (OE) variable valve timing (VVT) solenoids available to aftermarket customers. Fourteen part numbers cover 16 million 2000-2017 model year GM vehicles on the road.

 “The solenoids are GM-recommended replacements for vehicles’ original components,” says Jessica Earl, Article manager, ACDelco.

“Because ACDelco GM OE solenoids are designed by the same powertrain engineers who test original engine components for thousands of miles to ensure peak performance, independent aftermarket shops can install them with confidence.”

The availability of GM OE VVT solenoids is part of a growing trend by ACDelco to provide more GM OE parts to the independent aftermarket. Installers are eligible for purchase loyalty points and other opportunities that can be leveraged only through ACDelco.

The company says the solenoids feature many design enhancements that were engineered during the OE manufacturing process, including a special corrosion-resistant coating to help protect the part for as long as 10 years.

The OE design not only maximizes performance and durability, but also fuel efficiency and emissions reduction. The company says only GM OE VVT solenoids are tested with the original engine using U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) test procedures to ensure compliance with federal tailpipe emissions standards. 

This helps consumers maintain the fuel efficiency of their GM vehicle and offers peace of mind in states that require regular emissions testing.

 ACDelco GM OE VVT solenoids are backed by a 12-month/12,000-mile limited warranty. When installed by an ACDelco Professional Service Center (PSC) program participant, this warranty extends to 24 months and 24,000 miles. To learn more, visit
