Apa fungsi Oil Control Valve (OCV) ? Apakah Mengganggu kinerjanya bila terjadi rembes oli ? Benarkah untuk mengontrol kerja VVT (Variable Valve Timing) ? Newbie coba cari-cari literaturnya. Ini dia dapet literaturnya (khusus M15A di Aerio, Swift dan sepertinya SX4 juga), copy paste aja yah, males nerjemahin.
Posisi OCV bisa dilihat di gambar 1 bagian yang dilingkari.
Camshaft Position Control (VVT Variable Valve Timing) System Description
The VVT system is an electronic control system which continuously vary and optimize the intake valve timing in response to the engine operating condition.
The optimized intake valve timing produce such an air intake with high efficiency that both the higher power generation and lower fuel consumption can be attained in the whole engine speed range from low to high. In the area of the average engine load, low emission of nitrogen oxides (NOx) and high fuel efficiency can also be attained by making the valve opening overlap between the intake and exhaust valves longer.
Perhatikan gambar 2 :
For the brief of the system operation, the intake valve timing is varied by the cam timing sprocket (1) which varies the rotational phase between the intake camshaft (3) and sprocket. The rotor (2) in the cam timing sprocket is actuated by switching or adjusting the hydraulic pressure applied to the chambers for the timing advancing (7) and/or retarding (6).
To switch or adjust the hydraulic pressure appropriately, ECM operates the oil control valve (12) with detecting the engine speed, intake air value, throttle opening, engine coolant temperature and camshaft position (angle).

The oil control valve switches and adjusts the hydraulic pressure applied to the cam timing sprocket by moving the spool valve (1) according to the duty pulse signals output from the ECM. By this operation, the intake valve timing is varied continuously. Signals output from the ECM are the duty pulse of about 240 Hz.

Cam Timing Sprocket
Perhatikan gambar 4
The cam timing sprocket is equipped with the chambers for timing advancing (2) and retarding (3) which are separated by the rotor (5). The rotor rotates receiving the hydraulic pressure applied to both the chambers. The sprocket (1) is installed on the housing (4) and the rotor is secured on the intake camshaft by fastening the bolts. Therefore, the actuation of the rotor makes the phase difference between the sprocket and intake camshaft.

Perhatikan gambar 5
When the duty ratio of the signal output from the ECM is heavy, the spool valve (4) of the oil control valve moves to the left (opposite direction against the coil (5)). By this spool valve movement, the pressurized oil (1) is led into the chambers for timing advancing and the oil in the chambers for timing retarding is drained. This operations actuate the rotor (3) and result in the advanced timing of the intake valve.

Perhatikan gambar 6
When the duty ratio of the signal output from the ECM shows that of holding, the spool valve of the oil control valve is located at hold position. Because this condition generates no oil pressure changes in both chambers, the rotor is fixed at a target position.

Perhatikan gambar 7
When the duty ratio of the signal output from the ECM is light, the spool valve of the oil control valve moves to the right (head for the coil). By this spool valve movement, the pressurized oil is led into the chambers for timing retarding and the oil in the chambers for timing advancing is drained. This operations actuate the rotor and result in the retarded timing of the intake valve.

|Driving condition||Valve timing||Target of control||Effect|
|Engine running at idle speed||Most retarded||To shorten the valve opening overlap in order to prevent the exhaust gas counterflow to intake manifold.||Stabilization of the engine rotation at idle speed.|

Kembali ke pertanyaan sebelumnya :
- Apa fungsi Oil Control Valve (OCV) ?
OCV bekerja berdasarkan sinyal dari ECU untuk mengontrol tekanan oli pada Cam Timing Sprocket.
- Apakah mengganggu kinerjanya bila terjadi rembes oli ?
Bisa jadi, sedikit banyak tekanan oli yang dikontrol oleh OCV jadi terpengaruh bila ada kebocoran oli pada OCV.
- Benarkah untuk mengontrol kerja VVT (Variable Valve Timing) ?
Ya. VVT berbicara tentang waktu bukaan klep IN yang bisa berubah-ubah (Variable), waktu bukaan yang variable ini diatur oleh tekanan oli di dalam Cam Timing Sprocket, dan tekanan oli di sana diatur oleh OCV berdasarkan sinyal dari ECU. Jadi ECU memerintahkan OCV untuk menggerakkan sistem VVT.
