Machine which was first introduced in 1996 has been used in most cars of Toyota. In addition the machine is claimed to make the engine more efficient and powerful, environmentally friendly and fuel efficient. Then how the system works so as to establish a satisfactory result.

To calculate the time of opening and closing valve (valve timing) is optimal, the ECU (Electronic Control Unit) to adjust the engine speed, intake air volume, throttles position (accelerator) and the water temperature. In order for the target valve timing is always reached, camshaft or crankshaft position sensor gives a signal in response correction.

Easily VVT-i system will continue to correct the valve timing or line out of fuel and air. Adjusted by stepping on the accelerator and expenses incurred in order to produce optimum torque at each wheel and engine load.
