2007 suzuki: I have a 2007 Suzuki xl7 with what seems to be

Customer Question

I have a 2007 Suzuki xl7 with what seems to be a leaking VVT sensor, can you verify placement of the sensor. It seems to be right above the Crankshaft position sensors. I pulled it out to see the ring gasket around it was crooked and aged, cant find another sensor or the gasket on line anywhere. I attempted to fix the leak with RTV but its since gotten worse.

I also cant find the name of the gasket that goes into the block that the sensor slides into as id like to replace both

Looks like its the camshaft actuator solenoid, I was calling it a VVT sensor mistakenly. If you can get me the part number for the solenoid and the round gasket in the block it slides into, as well as the actual part name of the round gasket please

Expert:  Eric replied 1 year ago.
Hi,

Ok, I am going to have to opt out as my parts catalogue lists the part but no part number for some reason

Hello,

I’m Rachel, and I’m moderator for this topic. It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you right away, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.

I was checking to see if you had already found your answer or if you still needing assistance from another one of the professionals?

Please let me know if you wish to continue waiting or if you would like for us to close your question.

Also remember that JustAnswer has a multitude of categories to help you with all your needs from Health, Pets, Computers, Taxes, Cars, Finance, Law, to Home Improvement, and more.


Thank you,

Rachel

Expert:  Rachel-Mod replied 1 year ago.

Hello,

Thank you, we will continue to look for a professional to assist you. Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance while you wait.

Best,

Rachel

Hi, I understand you need a Camshaft Actuator Solenoid and Gasket - but there are 4 on your engine. Which one do you need? It's either for the Bank 1 or Bank 2 and can (on either bank) be for intake or exhaust
