Vtec dosent kick iN!!

I searched but 7/8 post on this forum has the word vtec in it.
Ok so my car ran out of gas and wouldn't start. I fixed that by buying sparkplugs, spark wires, cap, rotor, and the new sensor that the one wire comes from and goes into the cap.
Now i have another problem (before it broke down everything was perfect)
Vtec will not kick at all. When the engine gets to 5.5k rpm the rpm gauge shakes up and down. The car dose not get the vtec boost or do anything els.
I love this car but i keep having to fix it!!!
i need my vtec to beat the riced out civics!!!!!!!:driver:
help please!!!!

Re: Vtec dosent kick iN!!

take it to autozone and they do it free. Check to see if the solenoid is dirty. sometimes the screen in it will clog up.

In my experience I too had the VTEC denied and the RPM was bouncing rapidly up and down and I was throwing the CHECK ENGINE light. My cause was due to my VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) crapping out on me!!!

Even with the oil topped and all fluids to it's proper level...the VTEC wasn't just working til I got my VSS changed. Soon after that I was back up and kickin my VTEC on them damn lil civics and Teggies on the LIE!!!

Have it runned by Autozone by your way and see if your VSS is crapping out on you?!?!

Hope this helped?!

Re: Vtec dosent kick iN!!

Ok first of all, check your V-tec solenoid and make sure there's no dirt or grime in there and that it is not corroded at all. If that checks out, take a DVOM and check for current at the ECU; if you have current there, check at the clip in your engine bay; if at last you still have current there, check right at the v-tec solenoid. If you're not sure where the pin is just refer to a wiring schematic. Hope that helps

to check current you have to break the circuit, are you referring to voltage and not current?

Re: Vtec dosent kick iN!!

is it possible that having too much oil will not let it engage? lol +2.4 is quite a bit....have you ever had the cel light come on.....when you turn on (or turn to on) the car, it should come on then turn of, i believe all cars do this....if yours doesnt do this or u dont remember it doing this then yea previeious owner might of taken out the light which means it previeousely had a prob. they didnt want you to find out about maybe
