How To Replace A Vvt Solenoid

If you own a car with a VVT (variable valve timing) system, then you’re probably familiar with the issue of replaceable solenoids. In short, these are the small, electronic devices that open and close the valvetrain in your engine to control fuel and air delivery. When they fail, they can lead to major problems—from misfires to poor fuel economy. In this blog post, we’ll show you how to replace a Vvt solenoid and save yourself some trouble down the road.

What is a Vvt Solenoid?

A Vvt Solenoid is a component that is used in many types of vehicles. It converts mechanical power from the engine into electric power. To replace a Vvt Solenoid, you will need to remove the old one and install the new one.

How to Replace a Vvt Solenoid

Replacing a Vvt Solenoid on a John Deere Gator can be a tricky job, but not too difficult if you take some time to plan it out. Here are the steps you’ll need to follow:

1. Disconnect the battery and all electrical connections.

2. Remove the four screws that hold in the cover of the solenoid (two on each side). These screws are located behind the tractor’s engine cover.

3. Once the cover is free, use a flat-head screwdriver to pry off the old solenoid and replace it with a new one. Make sure that the orientation of the leads on the new solenoid matches those on your tractor’s original unit – they should both point down towards the ground. Reinstall the cover and screws, then connect everything back up!

What to Do If You Can’t Get the Vvt Solenoid to Work

If you are having trouble getting your VVT solenoid to work, there are a few things that you can do in order to troubleshoot the issue. First, make sure that the solenoid is plugged into the appropriate electrical outlet and that the fuse is properly installed. Next, try resetting the engine by turning it off and then back on again. Finally, if all of these steps fail to resolve the issue, you may need to replace the solenoid.


If you are experiencing problems with your VVT system, it might be time to replace your solenoid. Replacing the solenoid is a relatively easy task, and can result in improved engine performance.
