Vtec not working

Post by tailgatepro » Thu Jan 26, 2012 5:24 pm

I driving airwave 1.5 and my wife drive city 1.5 vtec.

Last night found that her vtec is not opening after 4k RPM. Been try until 5.5k RPM still no kick in.

Today I try my own airwave, still working fine.

Change out the Vtec solenoid valve. That should fix it.

VTec can feel one meh?
I thought only the old VTec engine can feel.

Since i-vtec launched, it has been refined with BHP distributing across the rpm curve, the butt can no longer feel it. :(
It is obviously poisonous.... yet I chose to jump in....

Check your engine oil level.

When the engine oil level is low, the vtec will not work
