4.2L Air Injection Diverter Valve Pictures (A.I.R.)

The AIR diverter valve has an electronic solenoid mounted on the valve. The resistance of the solenoid is 4-7 ohms and the current draw is 2-3.5 amps. The solenoid opens the shut-off valve when battery voltage is applied to the valve. Once opened, pressurized air from the AIR pump flows past the check valve and is directed into the bank 1 exhaust manifold through an outlet pipe. The shut-off valve prevents fresh air from being drawn into the exhaust manifold by providing a positive seal when the AIR system is inactive. The solenoid, valve, and outlet pipe are serviced as an assembly.
