My mechanic said the solenoid is dead, which is something i figured. My oil pressure is fine so it cant be that. So yea, i just need the solenoid.BlackV62K2 said:Does it not cross over or something? Low oil can cause vtec not to function.
I really dont know, my mechanic did all the diagonistics. He just told me that I needed to replace my VTEC solenoid. My car is so damn slow nowHONDA_99 said:Item #12 is just solenoid it needs to be replaced is solenoid burned out.
Item #13 is VTEC valve assembly it needs to be replaced if there is something wrong with valve or assembly housing.
However, you’re describing condition of car operating in safe (limp) mode. In safe mode engine will not rev above 5000RPM and VTEC won’t work.
ECU can go into safe mode if car was operated with trouble codes for extended period of time or has severe problem.
So, your VTEC system might be OK
Do you know what trouble codes caused CEL to come on?
