Honda Accord VTEC Solenoid Gaskets Replacement




What do you think about this video?

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

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

Mark Zelayaran: this is for the transmission right?

JAWOL NEIN: i love you! so now i know how to do it! Thanks!!! Just like a surgery doing his job except with a car x x x

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?

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. 

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

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

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

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.

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.

Ruben Diaz: What are signs of bad TCS solenoid? 

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

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

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

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. 

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

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

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

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!

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...

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

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

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

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.
