The Variable Valve Timing system is designed to increase engine output at a certain RPM / load range while maintaining fuel efficiency. This is accomplished by retarding exhaust valve closure. The PCM uses values from the throttle position sensor (TPS) & MAP sensor along with RPM to determine when to activate the system.

The Variable Valve Timing Solenoid is a key part in this system. It controls the oil pressure which engages an actuator to activate the cam timing change. A failure of this part will result in a complete failure of the VVT system.

Is this the same as the variable camshaft timing valve?
Mark L on Apr 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: this valve controls the cam timing via oil to and from cam phasers on the ford 5.4l triton. I have had zero trouble with these. only drawback when compared to oem is that the screw is not included. reuse old screw and squeeze tab a bit to hold screw captive.
Is this the updated version and dose it have the c clip on the bottom of it?
Chris S on May 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Updated? I think so, but more important, you have to transfer the screw to the new part. Please be careful....if you loose that screw inside the valve cover, you'll be pulling the valve cover off. I would mark the screw with some marking paint so you can see it incase it falls in the valve cover. Better buy an extendable magnet so you can fish is out....just as a precaution.
Does this part work for the 2005 150 fx4 5.4 3v motor???
