SYSTEM DESCRIPTION
This system has a swirl control valve in the intake passage of each cylinder.

While idling and during low engine speed operation the swirl control valve closes. Thus the velocity of the air in the intake passage increases promoting the vaporization of the fuel and producing a swirl in the combustion chamber.

Because of this operation this system tends to increase the burning speed of the gas mixture improve fuel consumption and increase the stability in running conditions.

Also except when idling and during low engine speed operation this system opens the swirl control valve. In this condition this system tends to increase power by improving intake efficiency via reduction of intake flow resistance intake flow.

The solenoid valve controls swirl control valve's shut/open condition. This solenoid valve is operated by the ECM.

COMPONENT DESCRIPTION

Swirl Control Valve Control Solenoid Valve
The swirl control valve control solenoid valve responds to signals from the ECM. When the ECM sends an ON (ground) signal the solenoid valve is bypassed to apply intake manifold vacuum to the swirl control valve actuator. This operation closes the swirl control valve. When the ECM sends an OFF signal the vacuum signal is cut and the swirl control valve opens.
