Used VTC Solenoid for all '90 - '95 300zx models.

Located on the rear of the VG30DE(TT) engine, these solenoids are used by the engine's ECU to adjust the position of the intake cam gears depending on load and demand the engine is experiencing.  These solenoids direct oil pressure down the center galley of cam shaft into the VTC gears when activated by the ECU.

Like any electrical device on a vehicle, over time they will wear out.

Used VTC solenoids may show signs of wear, and will generally need to be resealed with RTV silicone prior to installation. Images to the right represent the average condition of the VTC solenoids we have in stock. Please bear in mind that these parts are used and will NOT be in perfect condition.

Please choose the appropriate side when ordering:

Installation note:
The VTC solenoids are idential in function and operation on either side of the engine with the exception to the fact that the length of the harnesses are different.  The Driver side is longer by ~3 inches.

There is a Tar based filler used by Nissan in the back of the VTC solenoids.  Over time, this tar will essentially melt, and will run out onto the rear of the cylinder head.  This event does not mean that the VTC solenoid is bad and will not affect its operation.

Please note:
1996 model 300zx's DID NOT have VTC.  Nissan removed this sub-system.

Hi, just want to correct an error in your installation notes for these. The passenger side on us cars has the longer harness as the OEM connector run over by the passenger shock tower for connect to the engine harness. The driver side connects right above the solenoid. Thanks Ben
