Rev Limiter, No Vtec

Alright, I've done some search and haven't came across anything that lead to believe would be the exact culprit to my problem, so heres whats goin on.

97 MT Base Lude 100k Miles, had for lil over a year, had wires replace when first got car, plugs and oil changed couple weeks ago, also cleaned EGR valve and cleaned/replaced intake ports cause egr code and the p040 or wutever cylinder misfire code was popping up(only those 2 codes) so i did have codes read, cleared/reset, and checked again and so far everything is good to go there. But, since ive had car the rev limiter seems to kick in at around 6-6.5K and there have never really been any noticable signs on Vtec engagement. Ive always checked to make sure oil was up to par and engine was always running under normal temperature conditions and from what ive searched so far only other thing i havent checked yet is this vtec selonoid which im not even exactly sure where its located or how to go bout checking/cleaning it. SO if anyone has any other helpfull info they would like to share would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Rev Limiter, No Vtec

That whole unit with the green sensor is the VTEC solenoid!!! It's on the left side of the motor beside the dizzy!!! Once you find that GREEN oil pressure sensor then you're on the right track. There will be 3 10mm bolts that you need to remove. *Some oil will leak out so be prepared to have a rag to hold/wipe the oil up. Check to see if your vtec solenoid gasket inside is either dirty or worn.

If it's jus dirty then buy a can of throttle cleaner and spray the sh*t out of the gasket from the back end of the screen and the dirt should pretty much be gone!!!
