Nissan Maxima Service and Repair Manual: P0078, P0084 EVT control magnet retarder

Description

Nissan Maxima. Description

Exhaust valve timing control magnet retarder (1) controls the shut/ open timing of the exhaust valve by ON/OFF pulse duty signals sent from the ECM.

The longer pulse width retards valve timing.

The shorter pulse width advances valve timing.
