5th gen Vtec is being WIERD

Hey all i was just checking to see if anyone had an input on a problem im having. I was driving my car and the vtec was kicking in but no boosting the car the way it should. I checked my oil pressure but its very good and the car was warmed up. Now everytiume it goes into vtec it makes the noise it should just very loud but doesnt give it the boost what could be the problem? id really appreciate it if someone had a solution. Thanks

Check the oil level, possibly the vtec seloniod gasket as well.

no as long as you use premium you should be ok. what i was suggesting is that you might not have enough fuel pressure to supply your engine with enough fuel in its time of need.

Re: 5th gen Vtec is being WIERD

it might not be the problem but it is always a good idea to rule out the simple stuff first.
