My vtec does still engage, but i've heard i can get a better response if i were to clean the sludge out from the screen. My lude has 140,000 miles on it, and i don't feel like the owner before me even knew about the solenoid.

Re: Vtec solenoid

Yeah just clean it. I would say if it kicks then theirs no need, but who knows...maybe you haven't seen VTECs full potential since you bought the car, because it has been filthy. So, just clean it and see what happens.

Re: Vtec solenoid

there is three 10mm bolts holding it in,two on top one on the bottom. i think one or two wires clipped in to it. when you get it off be careful to take the screen out. hope this helps a little
