DDEC IV Varible Pressure Output Devices

DDEC IV engines use two VPODs which control the VNT and EGR valve. During engine EGR operation, the VPODs provide modulated air pressure to the pneumatic actuators which change the position of the VNT vanes and the position of the EGR valve.‪

Section 8.6.1.1
Inspection of Variable Pressure Output Devices

Inspection steps are as follows:‪

  1. To test the VPODs, refer to the Exhaust Gas Recirculation System Basic Checks Section found in the DDEC V Single ECU Troubleshooting Guide , 6SE497.
    1. If the VPOD is defective, replace the component.
    2. If the VPOD was not defective, reuse the component for installation.
  2. Visually check the sensor harness for damage.
    1. If the harness is damaged, repair as necessary and refer to the Wiring and Wires and Conduit and Loom sections found in DDEC IV Single ECU Troubleshooting Guide , 6SE497.
    2. If the harness is not damaged, reuse the harness for installation.

Section 8.6.2
Installation of Variable Pressure Output Devices

Installation steps are as follows:‪

  1. Align the VPODs (4) brackets to the engine block and secure with two bolts (1) and stud (3). See Figure "VPODs and Related Parts" . Torque the M10 bolt and M10 stud to 58-73 N·m (43-54 lb·ft) and the M8 bolt to 30-38 N·m (22-28 lb·ft).
