When current flows to the coils due to signals from the Engine Control Module (ECM) , the rotor turns and moves the valve shaft forward or backward, changing the clearance between the valve and the valve seat. In this way the intake air volume bypassing the throttle valve is regulated, controlling the engine idle speed. There are 125 possible positions to which the valve can be opened or closed by the engine control unit.
