Prototype is on a distinguished road
vtec solenoid

i have a 97 sh model, the vtec solenoid (top part) not whole assembly is leaking, I took it apart and noticed that the gasket in the top part has a crack in it. Is there another honda i can pull it from?Lets say a 4th gen? Stealership wants 250 for it.

Can i also get a gasket to put in there or is that out of the question?
I noticed on oreillys website that they have one listed and it can be used on 25 different hondas.

Re: vtec solenoid

Pretty common problem with these things. Usually they only need a new set of seals and are good to go, probably don't need a whole new solenoid from the stealership.



I think you're talking about part 17 in that pic, it's less than $7 from a site like Hondapartsnow.com or OEMAcuraparts.com etc. I'd go to the trouble of replacing the main o-ring and strainer too (part 15), it's only another $18.
