 FORT SMITH, Ark., March 5, 2021 – Cloyes persistence in delivering customers with complete repair solutions continues as five new Variable Valve Timing (VVT) Chain Kits have been launched.  “These five new kits expand Cloyes offering of the popular Toyota 2.4L, Ford 3.5/3.7L and Nissan 3.5L/4.0L engines covering more than 6.3 million vehicles on roads throughout North America today,” said Johnny Thao, Cloyes Director of Product Management.

The extensively tested VVT components are built to exacting standards that assure the ability of adjustable angle, protect against leakage, maximum oil flow and proper locking pin functionality.  All key factors in making sure that a shops engine timing repairs keep their customers vehicles on the road.

Jason Thompson, vice president of engineering and product development for Cloyes shares “The success of the VVT product program speaks not only to the continued integration of timing chain technology by our original equipment partners but also the desire of repair shops and their professional technicians to have all the parts in one box to do the job right.”

Unstable engine operation recognition is a typical indication of needed timing system maintenance.  System stress experienced by timing system components can have catastrophic effect on an engines normal lifecycle.  Cloyes recommends replacing all timing components during service work, which can be a fraction of the required repair cost compared to more extensive engine work.
