Honda Accord VTEC Solenoid Gaskets Replacement

In this video I show you how to replace both VTEC solenoid valve gaskets (valve to cylinder head and solenoid to valve) on 1994-1997 Accords. This is a common cause of oil leaks on the upper passenger side of the engine next to the distributor shaft seal, distributor o ring, and valve cover gasket. It seems the same engineers who buried the Accords fuel filter also decided to make the VTEC solenoid valve difficult to remove as well. One of the bolts for the valve is buried so deep you have to partially drain the cooling system and use a u-joint to get it out. I take your through the process step by step from removal of all the parts to re installation. This video ran a bit longer than I wanted it to but considering how deceptively easy this job looks at first glance (until you can't get that one remaining hidden bolt on the valve off to remove it) I decided to leave in as much detail as possible. You will need to add new coolant and bleed the cooling system to avoid engine damage after you're done. If you need that info here is the link to my cooling system bleeding video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=owQcxSrKARA Honda part numbers used in the video: Solenoid to valve gasket: 36172-P0A-005 VTEC valve to cylinder head gasket: 15825-P0A-015 VTEC oil pressure switch o-ring: 91319-PR3-003 Thermostat housing to intake gasket: 91312-P0A-000 Thermostat housing to connecting pipe o-ring: 91314-PH7-003 These part numbers should work on all 1994-1997 Accords with VTEC but as always check with your dealer to confirm these part numbers will work with your vehicle.

The V-Tec solenoid is central to the operation of Honda's variable valve timing. This ON/OFF solenoid is actuated to allow hydraulic pressure to reach the V-Tech rocker arms and lock the system. See how to test it and what affects its operation in our V-Tech solenoid video. *************************************************************************** *********** Amazon Printed-Books & Kindle: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&fiel d-keywords=mandy+concepcion Google Play Android APPs: https://play.google.com/store/search?q=mandy+concepcion&c=apps Amazon Video DVDs: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Dmovies-tv&field -keywords=mandy+concepcion Barnes & Noble Nook: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/s/mandy-concepcion?keyword=mandy+concepcion&s tore=allproducts Apple iTunes iPad: http://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/mandy-concepcion/id449573393?mt=11

Honda Transmission Rebuild Video - Transmission Repair
Honda Transmission Rebuild Video - Transmission Repair On this video we see what it takes to Rebuild a Honda Transmission, what parts it takes and what has been working to correct some of the common failures on these transmissions. Blue Overheated Torque Converters has been a common issue on these Transmissions for a long time and we still see this regularly to this day. Although there are various shift correction kits and special valves out there, all work really good on correcting the issue with the lack of converter feed fluid. I like them all. So if a deciding factor is important to you on which method to use, all I can say is this, They all work. Keep in mind that there are "other" fixes or items that can be added to the rebuild, but it is not really necessary if they're not really needed, I'm not mentioning any but I know some of you will. With that being said I like to thank you for watching this video and liking it and sharing it. Thank you guys for your support. Please Subscribe if you not already. Thanks.





HONDA V-Tec Operation
HONDA V-Tec Operation Get the book here: https://www.createspace.com/4321251 Describes the operation of the HONDA V-Tec variable valve timing system. Like never seen before, this animation goes into details on the mechanical principle of the V-Tec system. The Honda V-Tec system is a dual setting variable valve timing system. It is meant to give high efficiency and low power at lower RPM and high power and low efficiency at higher RPMs. There have been a few incarnations of V-Tec, which came out in the late 80's, but their principle is the same. See it all here with high quality visual details. *************************************************************************** ********* Amazon Printed-Books & Kindle: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&fiel d-keywords=mandy+concepcion Google Play Android APPs: https://play.google.com/store/search?q=mandy+concepcion&c=apps Amazon Video DVDs: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Dmovies-tv&field -keywords=mandy+concepcion Barnes & Noble Nook: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/s/mandy-concepcion?keyword=mandy+concepcion&s tore=allproducts Apple iTunes iPad: http://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/mandy-concepcion/id449573393?mt=11
