hi,
I am trying to get info to keep my mums 1994 esi civic running. Recently it stopped revving over 4000 rpm I suspected the V tec cam was not kicking in. Checked the locking pins for the cam and they are free, new plugs and fuel filter fitted but still no improvement. cleaned vtec solonoid valve but still nothing.

Any pointers pls I`ve tried searching the forum but have drawn a blank :( .

I used to be a mk2 crx owner for 9 glorious years but its been a few years since Ive floated round the honda forums.

cheers for any pointers ..........

Have you checked that there is oil in it?

Is the oil pressure right?

VTEC works on oil pressure so if there isnt any pressure it wont kick in

well just had a bit of luck, noticed a small piece of wire wool like fibre at the rear exhaust so looked into the back box. I could see the baffles and they didn`t look right so took a plunge and poked some of them out removing wire wool like material. Tried the car and its back to normal :)

cheers for the sugesstions cars now had new distributor cap, plugs , fuel filter , front 2 into 1 pipe ( as was blowing) and soon a new back box. Running a ok again so my mums well chuffed
