Honda Accord VTEC Solenoid Gaskets Replacement




What do you think about this video?

Chris Graham: Great video thank you. I have a 1998 honda accord 4cyl AT LX sedan the whole thing was about 99% the same. Took me about 90min in the middle of the night with one work light and a flashlight. Parts with coolant only cost about $30. 214xxx miles everything has been happening in the past month. Tansmission, power steering pump, oil pan leak, alternator, distributor leak and then vtec leak. Spent about a week trying to figure it out couldnt see the leaking spot just the trail of oil on the transmission and finally found other people reporting the same issue. Ur video showed how easy it was. 

Jesus Vega: I got a check engine light on my 1998 honda accord ex its a vtec system malfunction p1256 code and i see in forums doing this will fix this? Anyone have had the same problem? 

Jorge Caldas: It´s so helpfull...Thank you for posting that video. Now, my question is: can I change just upper gasket because my valve is leaking on the top and I think I don´t need change both gaskets. Wh

Miles West: My theremostat went bad recently and I know I had a leaking VTEC solenoid gasket so just completed both jobs. This video was very very helpfull. Mine was a 1999 Honda 4 cylnder and there were minor differences. Plunger under the solenoid did not have a spacer but was formed into the top half. Also, I had to remove the EGR valve to get to one of the VTEC assy bolts which was a good thing because that provided the opportunity to clean it out.. Thanks big!!

tj sy: Need to do this tom. Mine is a accord 2000 4 door do i need to remove the water inlet or just the air box and egr? Tia! 

Jorge Caldas: (....) What do u think? Also, to change just the upper gasket I only have to take off the three screws, right???? And when I take them off, the engine oil comes out? Thank u.

Paul Ang: This is one of the best repair videos I seen on youtube. Your audio is clear and explanations straight forward, that is most important to me. You seem to know what lies ahead and what to expect. Such is invaluable to people like me who have not attempted such tasks. Keep up the good work. God Bless!

Jorge Caldas: Please, put here a video how change motor and transmission mount for accord 95, please!!!!!!!!!! Thank u.

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

theknob1: Excellent job on the video! You are very thorough. Thank you. I don't think I could ever do this. One question. I have a 2000 Honda Accord LX with the smaller 4 cylinder automatic. It had an oil leak that was really so slow that there was no drip. Then last week it began gushing when running. Took it to a local garage (experienced shade tree older guys) and they said it was this problem. Could this be the problem if it is all of a sudden gushing oil? Also do you have any idea what a Honda dealership would charge to do this?

Eng Lee: very good instruction. job well done

Carlos Jimenez: What is the gasket called at the part when you said to replace all gaskets. Between the inlet housing 

Brad Johnson: I don't know what the difference is, but I have a 97 Acura CL 2.2 5 speed, and I did this exact same job without taking any of the water outlet out. 10mm wrench, and a 1/4" drive 10mm socket did the trick. Somebody used silicone gasket maker on the upper valve and the piston was glued down. She's a beast now! Great tips tho.

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

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

Carlos alberto brasco: Gostaria de saber porque o meu modulo de ignição queima tanto? Estou a 9 meses sem andea com o carro, caso posso me ajudaar fico grato.

Mark Zelayaran: this is for the transmission right?

mr semifixit: So you don't clean up both mating surfaces of the block/vtec solenoid with brake cleaner so it's completely dry/clean? I've read forums where people say to do that And also, why do you put oil on the new gaskets? No one ever mentioned doing that in other how-to's, I'm confused now on what's the proper way ha

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

jey molan: Wao el único video llevo dos dias buscando este video gracias desde Costa Rica Genial gracias pura vida.!! :D

Ruben Diaz: What are signs of bad TCS solenoid? 

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

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

That One Korean Kid: Where did you get your gaskets? Dealership?

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

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

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

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

Law Edison: quality video :)

Matt Oberlander: Thanks. Very well done video!

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. 

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

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. 

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

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

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...

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
