Dales Super Store - Cam Phaser Lock Out / VCT Elimination
Cam phaser issues plus oil pressure problems were common on certain 3 valve Ford engines. The cam phasers are used to advance and retreat cam timing, which is oil pressure controlled by variable cam timing solenoids. When commanded, the solenoids direct oil pressure to advance or retreat the timing. If the pressure drops due to a malfunctioning part, it will cause a knocking noise. Basically, a locking pin keeps oil thin at idle, and the problem goes away when you start driving. Luckily, Dale’s Super Store has the correct fix for all your Cam Phaser problems with our superior Cam Phaser Lock Kits.
