Nissan Maxima Service and Repair Manual: P0075, P0081 IVT control solenoid valve

Description

Nissan Maxima. Description

Intake valve timing control solenoid valve is activated by ON/OFF pulse duty (ratio) signals from the ECM.

The intake valve timing control solenoid valve changes the oil amount and direction of flow via the intake valve timing control unit or stops oil flow.

The longer pulse width advances valve angle.

The shorter pulse width retards valve angle.

When ON and OFF pulse widths become equal, the solenoid valve stops oil pressure flow to fix the intake valve angle at the control position.

DTC CONFIRMATION PROCEDURE

1.PRECONDITIONING

If DTC Confirmation Procedure has been previously conducted, always perform the following before conducting the next test.

  1. Turn ignition switch OFF and wait at least 10 seconds.
  2. Turn ignition switch ON.
  3. Turn ignition switch OFF and wait at least 10 seconds.

2.PERFORM DTC CONFIRMATION PROCEDURE

  1. Start engine and let it idle for 5 seconds.
  2. Check 1st trip DTC.

Diagnosis Procedure

Regarding Wiring Diagram information

1.CHECK INTAKE VALVE TIMING CONTROL SOLENOID VALVE POWER SUPPLY CIRCUIT\

2.CHECK INTAKE VALVE TIMING CONTROL SOLENOID VALVE OUTPUT SIGNAL CIRCUIT FOR OPEN AND SHORT

  1. Turn ignition switch OFF.
  2. Disconnect ECM harness connector.
  3. Check the continuity between intake valve timing control solenoid valve harness connector and ECM harness connector.
  4. Also check harness for short to ground and short to power.

2.CHECK INTAKE VALVE TIMING CONTROL SOLENOID VALVE-II

Nissan Maxima. CHECK INTAKE VALVE TIMING CONTROL SOLENOID VALVE-II

  1. Remove intake valve timing control solenoid valve. Refer to EM-54, "Exploded View".
  2. Provide 12 V DC between intake valve timing control solenoid valve terminals 1 and 2, and then interrupt it. Check that the plunger moves as shown in the figure.

CAUTION: Never apply 12 V DC continuously for 5 seconds or more.

Doing so may result in damage to the coil in intake valve timing control solenoid valve.

NOTE: Always replace O-ring when intake valve timing control solenoid valve is removed.
