    Comments about Dorman - OE Solutions Variable Valve Timing Solenoid:

    Clogged ports in original part causes unnecessary or missing/delayed timing changes affecting performance. I never had an error code, just occasional stumbling and stalling.

    This part appeared identical to the factory original and the performance was back to normal immediately.

    The part in my vehicle is directly behind the power steering pump so while the VVT was very easy to remove and replace, I did need to remove the belt and PS pump to make enough room to pull the part out of the engine.

    Great price, in stock at almost every location nearby, a little difficult to install because of location on the vehicle but that isn't due to the part itself.

      Comments about Dorman - OE Solutions Variable Valve Timing Solenoid:

      I bought this for my 2002 Envoy and replaced the original one. I started getting P1345 & P0014 codes (cam/crank mismatch & timing overadvanced). I brought it to the dealer who replaced my camshaft actuator (inside engine) for $1000. Codes came back. Turns out, it was the Dorman timing solenoid the whole time!!! Replaced it with a DELCO unit and the truck has never run better. Do your research before buying this - it got bad reviews on [@]. GO OEM with this part!
