Default Where do I find the VVTi Oil control valve on 2.4L 2005 Camry

I have been looking for a reason for the P0012 DTC code and was looking for the VVTi Oil control valve & filter. I cannot see where it is on the engine. Can someone tell me where to look.

Thanks

its coming up as a lexus part... Usa ebay

Lexus Toyota VVT 15340 0A010 CAM Timing OIL Control Solenoid Valve LH Bank 1 | eBay


humm .typical
The factory repair manual isnt showing its exact location .

yet the part description says left hand bank


P0012 DTC fault code explained

http://www.obd-codes.com/p0012

That consists of a few different components but the P0012 DTC specifically refers to the camshaft (cam) timing. In this case, if the cam timing is over-retarded, the engine light will be illluminated and the code will be set. The "A" camshaft is either the intake, left, or front camshaft.



When you find it you can test it

2. INSPECT CAMSHAFT TIMING OIL CONTROL VALVE
ASSY
(a) Measure the resistance between the terminals.
Standard: 6.9 to 7.9 W at 20C (68F)
If the result is not as specified, replace the OCV assy.
(b) Connect the battery’s positive (+) lead to terminal 1 and
negative (−) lead to terminal 2, and check the movement
of the valve.
NOTICE:
Confirm that the valve moves freely and does not become
stuck in any position.
If necessary, replace the OCV assy.
HINT:
If the valve cannot return properly because of foreign matter, a
small pressure leak in the advanced direction may occur and a
DTC will be output.

3. CHECK CAMSHAFT TIMING OIL CONTROL VALVE ASSY
(a) Connect the hand−held tester or OBD II scan tool to the DLC3.
(b) Turn the ignition switch ON.
(c) Start the engine and warm it up.
(d) Select the VVT from the ACTIVE TEST menu.
(e) Check the engine speed when the OCV is operated by the hand−held tester.
Standard:
Condition Specified Condition
VVT system is OFF (OCV is OFF) Normal engine speed
VVT system is ON (OCV is ON) Rough idle or engine stalled
If the result is not as specified, replace the OCV assy.
