Vtec Problem

So my car used to crack VTEC hard and fine just a few days ago. Today i noticed it didnt crack, or it did and nowhere near as hard. Engine has enough oil i just used injector cleaner and ran seafoam thru the brake booster line so everything is preety clean. Could the seafoam have done any damage? i used about a little close to half the bottle, my intake mani was really dirty. What could be my problem?

every single time i have had a problem with v-tec it has ALWAYS been oil pressure. I would start with that, easiest and cheapest fixes.

IF no CEL i would go to the oil. How long has it been since you last changed it.

It's not always good to hit vtec HARD. It's always good for it to be smooth and pleasant. Change your oil and see what happens. You can also clean/replace your solenoid screen
