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
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.
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

How VTEC Sound Like
This is what VTEC should sound like. The crossover to the high cams should
be linear without any power loss. My car was tuned to make maximum power
across the RPM range. This was done in 4th gear.
I Dynoed 210whp &
154wtq on a Dynojet.
Car: 2008 Honda Civic Si FG2
Tune: Hondata FlashPro
VTEC kicks in at 4k RPM all the way to a redline of 8.6k RPM.
"VTEC (which stands for Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control)
is an electronic and mechanical system in some Honda engines that allows
the engine to effectively have multiple camshafts. As the engine moves into
different rpm ranges, the engine's computer can activate alternate lobes on
the camshaft and change the cam's timing. In this way, the engine gets the
best features of low-speed and high-speed camshafts in the same engine."
Here is my Civic's record at the drag strip:
RARE! VTEC sound/noise, i-VTEC motor/engine, 09 Honda Civic Si
Im purposely Under Shifting to show my viewers what VTEC sounds like
instead of only hearing it once every time i go from 1st to 2nd.
09 Honda civic si, put in a Ram Air/ Short ram Intake by Injen, and i
wanted to let people hear the sound the intake makes on the Si. it sounds
not bad. just cruising around the block in my town. there is lots of
traffic and cops in the area so i couldn't do much 3rd gear pulls.
is it Ram air intake or short ram intake?
sorry about the quality, i had it on HD when i recorded it and now it looks
pretty fuzzy on youtube. comment and rate this video please and drive
and also a great video to show people who arent sure what VTEC or i-VTEC
motor/engine is and what it sounds like. just for the curious folks.
driving right up to vtec range and then shifting early to show multiple
crossover for more than just one gear.

2015 Honda Accord Sport Sedan Test Drive Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/honda/accord/2015/?id=32972 The Honda Accord may
be the best-selling car in America if you only take into account consumer
sales. Otherwise it is a toss-up between the Camry and the Accord. But the
new Accord is more refined and much more exciting to drive. The trim level
tested here is the Sport trim level which starts at $24,665. The Sport trim
gets you fog lights, 18-inch aluminum wheels, Sport-tuned suspension, and a
Then engine is a 2.4 liter 4-cylinder that makes 189 horsepower and 182 lb-ft. of
torque. Even though this is called the Sport model, the transmission is
still a CVT unit. The good news though is the fuel economy is 26 MPG in the
city and 35 MPG on the highway.
The interior is a great place to be. The controls are perfectly laid out
with wonderful visibility. There is also a standard reversing camera.
Everything is logically arranged and marked. It is very easy to find all
the controls since there is not much clutter and technology. You can get
more features and options by getting one of the higher trim levels.
