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

well I havent had my question answered. I need to verify the location of the vvt sensor and the name of the gasket/bung in the block that it slips into

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

the sensor in question is on the passenger side of the motor inbetween theCam sensors behind the tortion mount on the motor

Expert:  Eric replied 3 years ago.
Hi,

below shows all the sensors where the cam sensors are

tell me which one it is and I will pull the part number

Customer: replied 3 years ago.


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

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?

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
