Hi guys,

I'd like to have your opinions about my problems..

Since 2 months my car doesn't run as before.

Pretty lazy when accelerating, no feeling at all.

No VTEC engagement (good temperature, oil level ok, no CEL..)

Only motor mod I have is the Injen CAI, nothing crazy haha.

Thanks for the help!

Cimon

How many miles does it have? How does your spark plugs look? Is your CAI filter clean?

@CraZie: I have 185k km/ 115k miles. Haven't checked my spark plugs yet.. CAI filter is more than clean, checked it last night (have an hydroshield over it too).

@jjcannon: I'm using Supreme gas oct.94

No vtec? Hmm... You could try disconnecting the battery to reset the ecu.

@JTrix215: Tried it last week... already a better feeling (pedal is answering quite faster) but still no VTEC. I'm totally lost right now.

Do you have 6mt or an auto? How high on the RPM range do you go?

@CraZie: 6mt! I tried every possible range to see if you would engage late or whatever..and nothing. It gets reallllllllly lazy when it reaches 5k +

Check your plugs. You got Hondata? If so, it'll kick in at 5k, if not. It's around 6k. Also, it's the winter here and your cars gotta warm up. Vtec runs on engine oil as well.

Don't have Hondata :p

Yeah I always wait for a good temperature, my oil level is good. This weekend I'll check my spark plugs maybe this is time to change them!

I'll try to check the VTEC solenoid too :)

After that, I'll reset for another time the ECU, I need to find that trouble, makes me crazy.

Spark plugs are past-due at 185k km's... change those.
When was the last time you changed the oil filter? Oil levels may be good but a clogged filter will lower your oil pressures, although this typically throws a light on the console.
