Selling VVT Components

Selling VVT Components

When you’re selling replacement VVT sprockets, solenoids and other components, it’s important to recommend components that meet or exceed OE specifications.

Variable valve timing, or VVT, is a system of parts that work together to improve a vehicle’s ignition timing. Over the past few years, VVT systems have become the dominant underhood technology in gasoline-powered vehicles, as automakers embrace fuel-saving technologies, smaller engines and lighter vehicles.

VVT technology allows the engine-management system to precisely control the opening and closing of the intake and exhaust valves. By altering the timing and/or duration of a valve lift event, VVT improves low- and high-end performance, reduces emissions and makes the engine more fuel-efficient. 

VVT systems typically include components such as VVT solenoids, cam phasers (also known as sprockets), VVT actuators and an oil-control valve.

How to Manage High Operating Temps in a Vehicle

When an engine overheats, things can really escalate.

For many modern vehicles, the typical operating range for an engine is 190 to 225 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Unless your customers have a high-performance vehicle with a digital temperature display, they’re only going to see that the engine is in the “normal” range in the center of the temperature gauge or at the extremes. What this means is that most drivers have no idea what’s really happening with their vehicle’s internal engine temperature.
