Q: What should I do when the VTEC code is on

asked by on

I have changed my engine oil and filter replaced the vtec solenoid changed ECM and ran new wire from vtec solenoid to the ECM what else can I do

My car has 205000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

The VTEC system is controlled by oil pressure. It is not uncommon to have a blockage in the oil galley that feeds the VTEC solenoid. Sometimes it is necessary to actually physically clean the oil supply to the VTEC solenoid.
