DESCRIPTION

The exhaust camshaft's Variable Valve Timing (VVT) sensor consists of a magnet and MRE (Magneto Resistance Element).

The exhaust camshaft has a sensor plate with 3 teeth on its outer circumference.

When the exhaust camshaft rotates, changes occur in the air gaps between the 3 teeth and MRE, which affects the magnet. As a result, the resistance of the MRE material fluctuates. The VVT sensor converts the exhaust camshaft rotation data to pulse signals, uses the pulse signals to determine the camshaft angle, and sends it to the ECM.

DTC No.

Trouble Area

P0365
P0390
  • Input voltage to ECM remains 0.3 V or less, or 4.7 V or higher for more than 5 seconds, when 2 or more seconds have elapsed after turning ignition switch ON position (1 trip detection logic)
  •  No VVT sensor signal to ECM during cranking (1 trip detection logic)
  • Open or short in VVT sensor for exhaust camshaft circuit
  •  VVT sensor for exhaust camshaft
  •  Exhaust camshaft
  •  Jumped tooth of timing chain
  •  ECM
P0367
P0392
Output voltage of VVT sensor is 0.3 V or less for 5 seconds (1 trip detection logic)
  • Open or short in VVT sensor for exhaust camshaft circuit
  •  VVT sensor for exhaust camshaft
  •  Exhaust camshaft
  •  Jumped tooth of timing chain
  •  ECM
P0368
P0393
Output voltage of VVT sensor is 4.7 V or more for 5 seconds (1 trip detection logic)
  • Open or short in VVT sensor for exhaust camshaft circuit
  •  VVT sensor for exhaust camshaft
  •  Exhaust camshaft

  •  ECM

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

If no signal is transmitted by the VVT (for exhaust camshaft) sensor despite the engine revolving, or the rotations of the exhaust camshaft and the crankshaft are not synchronized, the ECM interprets this as a malfunction of the sensor

INSPECTION PROCEDURE

HINT: Read freeze frame data using the intelligent tester. The ECM records vehicle and driving condition information as freeze frame data the moment a DTC is stored. When troubleshooting, freeze frame data can be helpful in determining whether the vehicle was running or stopped, whether the engine was warmed up or not, whether the air-fuel ratio was lean or rich, as well as other data recorded at the time of a malfunction.
