Re: car is draning battery

okay.... if your battery keeps dying you have an electrical draw. do you have anything aftermarket installed??? radio...amp... alarm.... etc??

and if you vtec is not kicking in... either your low on oil ....or the grey one wire plug by the vtec solenoid has come apart. common problem on 5th gens.

Too thick of oil will cause VTEC to not kick in also. I put in 10W40 once cuz it was all I had and thing ran like crap...

Re: car is draning battery

for vtec check oil + solenoid if its the solenoid u should have a cel.

how much oil is it burning in what length of time?

as for the battery drain theres somethin thats constantly drawing from it like bustr said

unless the wires going from alternator are bad and arent charging the battery

Re: car is draning battery

well if you changed the battery and alternator twice each, then try the wires, about using oil, how many miles are on you engine, how much are you losing over time, and have you been to advacne or auto zone to let them check your alternator and battery
