Toyota Corolla Repair Manual: Circuit description

The variable valve timing (vvt) system includes the ecm, the oil control valve (ocv) and the vvt controller.

The ecm sends a target dutycycle control signal to the ocv. This control signal, applied to the ocv, regulates the oil pressure supplied to the vvt controller. Camshaft timing control is performed based on engine operation conditions such as the intake air volume, throttle position and engine coolant temperature.

The ecm controls the ocv, based on the signals output from the sensors. The vvt controller regulates the intake camshaft angle using oil pressure through the ocv. As result, the relative position between the camshaft and the crankshaft is optimized, and the engine torque improves, fuel economy improves, and exhaust emissions decrease under overall driving conditions. Also, the ecm detects the actual valve timing using signals from the camshaft position sensor and the crankshaft position sensor, and performs the feedback control. This is how target valve timing is verified by the ecm.

Monitor description

Monitor description

After the ecm sends the target dutycycle signal to the ocv, the ecm monitors the ocv current to establish an actual dutycycle. The ecm detects a malfunction and sets a dtc when the actual dutycycle ratio varies from the target dutycycle ratio.
