CVVT Assembly

1. Inspect CVVT assembly.

  1. Check that the CVVT assembly will not turn.
  2. Apply vinyl tape to the retard hole except the one indicated by the arrow in the illustration.

    Verify the hold to tape and the hole to put air in.

[Intake]

[Exhaust]

[Exhaust]

  1. Wind tape around the tip of the air gun and apply air of approx. 150kPa (1.5kgf/cm2,21psi) to the port of the camshaft.

    (Perform this in order to release the lock pin.)

NOTE

When the oil splashes, wipe it off with a shop rag and the likes.

  1. With air applied, as in step (3), turn the CVVT assembly to the advance angle side (the arrow marked direction in the illustration) with your hand.

    Depending on the air pressure, the CVVT assembly will turn to the advance side without applying force by hand. Also, under the condition that the pressure can be hardly applied because of the air leakage from the port, there may be the case that the lock pin could be hardly released.

  1. Turn the CVVT assembly back and forth and check the movable range and that there is no disturbance.

Standard:

Should move smoothly in a range from about

22.5º (Intake) / 20.0º (Exhaust)

  1. Turn the intake CVVT assembly with your hand and lock it at the maximum retard angle position (counter clockwise).
  2. Turn the exhaust CVVT assembly with your hand and lock it at the maximum advance angle position (clockwise).

Reassembly

NOTE

Thoroughly clean all parts to be assembled.

Before installing the parts, apply fresh engine oil to all sliding and rotating surfaces.

Replace oil seals with new ones.

1. Install valves.

  1. Using SST (09222-4A000), push in a new oil seal.

NOTE

Do not reuse old valve stem seals.

Incorrect installation of the seal could result in oil leakage past the valve guides.

  1. Install the valve, valve spring and spring retainer.

NOTE

Place valve springs so that the side coated with enamel faces toward the valve spring retainer and then installs the retainer.

  1. Using the SST (09222-3K000, 09222-3K100), compress the spring and install the retainer locks. After installing the valves, ensure that the retainer locks are correctly in place before releasing the valve spring compressor.

  1. Lightly tap the end of each valve stem two or three times with the wooden handle of a hammer to ensure proper seating of the valve and retainer lock.

2. Install the MLAs after appling engine oil.

Check that the MLA rotates smoothly by hand.

NOTE

NOTE

MLA can be reinstalled in its original position.

However, the valve lash clearances must be rechecked and adjusted accordingly before the cylinder head is installed onto the cylinder block.

Refer to General information in EM section for Valve Clearance checking and adjustment procedure.
