Did this video help you?

Christian Jespersen: Thanks for this in-depth tutorial! The part numbers you included were EXTREMELY helpful. 

Mark Zelayaran: this is for the transmission right?

Hendrik Hallo: Damn thats a poor design to remove that solenoid valve. Nice writeup though!

jcwat: just did this job today. my back is still recovering from all that bending. I even had to buy more coolant and bleed the system. thanks for the video it made this job 10 times easier. 

Collin Amedee: I've got a stripped 12mm bolt on my Water Inlet Housing, any recommendations to get it out? The area is to small to hammer in a smaller size. 

dean rhino: I need to replace mine but I can't seem to find one online through part sorted near me any suggestions?

PETER MOSS: great vid thanks for the heads up with what looked looked an easy job ,but turned out to be mine field for the unsuspecting , i can now understand how Honda s management are millionaires .

Ruben Diaz: What are signs of bad TCS solenoid? 

Law Edison: quality video :)

Kalawina Goodale: This was the best demo of how to change out a VTEC Gasket I have seen, thank you. Now; is it the same for a CR-V? I could not fine anything on YouTube for VTEC gasket replacement for a CR-V

everardo hernandez: ok thas nise video this to long and expresive step and step thanks

Mark Herrada: Would this be the same on the F23a1 motor on a 2000 Honda Accord? 

nere de lesma: My 2001 honda accord having trouble stare it my stared, alternator and battery are good what Should i look for? Fuses are good too

NoahFaksYou: Where did you get your gaskets? Dealership?

James Barber: hello bushougoma do you know if the vtec valve is leaking i should replace the whole entire valve or can i just replace the gaskets to stop the leak

J Amin: Very Detailed and Professional! Awesome Job, Thanks For Your Great Effort And Educational Video........ 

Matt Oberlander: Thanks. Very well done video!

dave h: Nice job. The video was great, and very informative. It was a big help.

ramon hernandez: nice video!!!(>_<)

Jose Rosario: really nice vid, wondering if there was a short way, and just saw this, theres only 1, the long way, ty for this

Mari Villanueva: my 1994 honda accord vtec is shaking a lot every time i stop do you guys know whats wrong with it…???? can you guys pls help me...

dumass00072: A little petroleum jelly works wonders when putting hoses back on, 

mrhempoilsoldier: i hated honda for years. UNTIL I BOUGHT ONE

fifo32: I have a 96 accord ex. My vtec solenoid doesn't have that oil pressure plug in or sensor. It's just a bolt ran in there. What's the reason for that?

TheYoooth: think this will be the same as a 00' prelude? think my gasket is leaking oil.

jbach72: Wow man. You're awesome video just saved me. I'm not extremely handy but your step by step guide just allowed me to save hundreds of dollars in labor charges. I spent like $25 on gaskets, and that's it. Thanks! Nice job. Very thorough, and great camera quality!

modwickman: I've done this without removing the thermostat housing or any of the coolant hoses. Stubby flex gear wrench ;)

Jon Whyte: I have an '03 Honda Accord with this problem, I've bought the gasket( block to valve-I guess) It seems like a very easy going project on my car. There is nothing blocking it, since its directly on the back of the motor. The only problem is that it just beyond the line of sight. I'm sure a mirror could fix that without any issues. I'm new to working on my own vehicle, so my question may seem stupid-sorry- do I have to drain the oil out to do this repair? Thanks for your response!

Bushougoma: Access on the preludes is even easier a lot less stuff in the way.

Bushougoma: That is a 6th generation Honda (1998-2002) the one in the video is a 5th gen but yes the process will be similar.

Bushougoma: No it activates VTEC a more aggressive cam profile.

Bushougoma: If you have a thin profile box end wrench you can get that badly located bolt loose without opening the cooling system. Gearwrench makes a nice affordable set and the big 3 tool companies do too. The fatter end of cheaper box end wrenches won't allow you get the box end on square due to the cramped quarters around the bolt and that's a bad place to round a fastener. I didn't expect most people to have the more expensive box end wrenches so I went about it differently. Thanks For Watching.

Jerry Smietanka: Best video about Vtec! One question so far; in 2000 Accord/4 cyl/do I have to go the same way, or I can just remove water hose with thermostat to get to the bottom bolt of selenoid?

Gary Helena: where did you get those parts from??

Bushougoma: Yes the process will be similar.

Bushougoma: Yes the process is similar.

Eduardo Rafael Cortés Mulero: Hi! Your videos are really professional, you're a pro. I have this accord 2001 EX 2dr, recently my mechanic changed the vtec gasket because I had a leak. When I got back the car it

Bushougoma: That's the heater core inlet hose I have already made a video on replacing it. You can find the part number in that videos description.

Bushougoma: I would change the inlet housing o-rings since you'll have to remove it to access the final bolt for the VTEC valve at the bottom. Even then you'll need a u-joint to break it loose. You're going to be partially draining the cooling system when you remove the inlet housing. You don't want to risk a coolant leak if you reuse the old o-rings. The bottle of coolant to refill the system will cost more than the replacement inlet o-rings.

outdoorsman310: can you operate a vtec solenoid with a code scanner or modus?

salceci: Does the cylinoid itself ever get damaged? Or is the cause of the Vtec not opening just this gasket?

Mweezzee: This video was awesome, I swapped out my vtec solenoid gaskets and distributor oring today, this video saved me a lot of money!

Trevor Grosswiler: love your videos, I own a 1997 v6 vtec Honda Accord that I abused in high school; I'm bringing it back to life (hondas are tanks) its a great car :) so these videos are perfect, they help me out a lot! keep up the good work looking forward to see more!

Bushougoma: Check the description. Thanks for watching.

Bushougoma: That's the next generation Accord and the valve is slightly different so yes it's normal.

Bushougoma: The VTEC solenoid only has one green 12V power wire. It grounds itself through the block. The PCM driver sends battery voltage through the green wire to open the valve. What do you mean by doing the wiring? Are you attempting to retrofit a non-VTEC engine with VTEC? That will require a cylinder head and PCM swap.

Bushougoma: On the earlier OBD2 Accords I don't believe there is functionality to command the solenoid on. But there is a ON / OFF PID for both the VTEC oil pressure switch and the VTEC solenoid to aid in troubleshooting.

TrueBlueEG8: you got my like for the intro music,smooth :)

kzenmce1: do you have any experience doing the wiring for the vtec valve? i dont wanna go stripping things down without knowing what i'm doing. the instructions for this procedure suggest a wiring check at the same time is why i'm asking. thx

Adam Rosario: hey bushougoma! thank you for your helping me find a leak on my 1997 honda accord ex v-tec. ,my driveway is full of old oil from a leak, which i paid many mechanics to fix and could not quite find it, after 2 years finally i came across this video today and wham!!! problem fixed...once again thank you. 225,000 mile still running strong.
