Oil control valve

I suspect that the oil control valve on a 2004 Hyundai Elantra is going bad. Where is it located and how do I test it? Thanks

    there are no symptoms. A P0010 code came up because the engine light is on. We replaced the camshaft sensor and the light came on again after replacing it.

On the lower front of the cyl head right where the thermostat is a 14 mm bolt remove that bolt and there will be a screen filter for the ocv if clogged it will reduce oil pressure to the ocv and give you a p0010 or p0011 code clean screen replace clear code all should be good

You mention the oil control valve,so you have a 2 litre petrol engine with cvvt then?Sometimes you can remove the oil control valve and clean it out and re install it and an oil change with nice clean oil is good for them too.The ocv valve is located when plastic engine cover is removed,on the front rh top of the cyl head with an electrical plug on it.

hard to trouble shoot but it seems theres a electrical issue or you ISC (idle speed control) is going bad because this valve closes and opens when the a/c is on or the power steering is in use at idle, did you check for OBD2 codes? try cleaning the throttle body with some carb cleaner and also the ISC valve,heres a pic of what it looks like you will have to remove the air cleaner and next to the throttle body you will see this valve it's also common for they to fail after high milage.

My 2004 hyundai elantra just started dying out of no where sometimes it runs just fine sometimes it just jerks like its going to die and sometimes it actually dies not sure whats goin on???


My friend had this problem with her Hyundai 2003 Sante Fe...just dying out. And I did some research for her. There was one particular forum, where I Googled the make and model, year of the vehicle that came up where a few people had this problem. And the problem isn't picked up by the dearler's computer test. The part was the EGR solenoid control valve. Maybe that's a place to start?

a drive belt refers to belt driven items like alternator, power steering, water pumps and the like.

A timing belt is cogged to precicely hold the relationship between the crankshaft and the valve train. Timing belts are usually located within covers, as the loss or damage to this belt exposes engine damage and failure.
