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.

Our electrical and electronic parts are subject to strict quality testing.

Is this the same as the variable camshaft timing valve?
Mark C April 4, 2017
This is the part I purchased for my 05 expedition, to replace the Variable Camshaft Timing. I took the original out first to be sure the one I was ordering was at least similar. Perhaps it might be useful to take a look at the one in the vehicle now.
Joseph W April 4, 2017
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.
Jason K April 4, 2017
Is this the updated version and dose it have the c clip on the bottom of it?
Chris S May 21, 2017
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, youll 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.
Mike C May 21, 2017
This will be a standard replacement part, and it does not appear to come with the c clip.

This come whit gasket?
Isaac A August 28, 2018
I didnt remember needing a gasket but Solenoids worked fine for me.
T O August 28, 2018
This part does not include the gasket.
Emma F August 28, 2018
Gasket(s) are not required; " O " - rings are whats used for this application. Make certain theyre present, put a bit of oil ( any type ) on them, then install The critical point is to ensure the correct connector goes to it as the two connectors are similar and can be installed incorrectly.
