Oil Control Valves are fully functional valve timing solenoids that control the flow of oil to the VVT system as it is engaged.  Oil Control Valves activate when there is a significant load against the engine.  Some examples of this include while a vehicle is carrying additional weight, traveling up hills or when acceleration is expedited through throttle control.

When the Control Valve activates, oil is sent to lubricate the variable valve timing chain and gear assembly. If the Control Valve fails or is blocked, the lack of proper lubrication can cause the chain and gear to prematurely wear or break entirely.
Symptoms of a failing / poor Control Valve include the check engine light coming on, dirty engine oil, rough engine idle, and a decrease in fuel economy.
