CEL light on, no other symptoms. Started after oil level dropped. Oil level fine now but CEL still on, still reporting VTEC oil pressure switch as fault.
Check engine light came on car started jerking had it tested code P2647 came up pressure switch circuit high voltage, It was a recall in my car but it was for the V-6 I think it should be fixed by Honda.
I have the P1259 problem. After 2 oil and filter changes, I replaced the VTEC Solenoid Spool Valve w/ both upper and lower gaskets and VTEC Oil Pressure Switch. Still have the issue. I don't understand why one code can be so vague in its explanation for the repair needed.
It could be cables but I don't know how to check for them because I don't know where the ECM/PCM connector B is located (as I read my service manual). Please help me find it!
My 2001 Honda also did the same thing,jerked and jumped between 2000-3000 rpms,would not go into passing gear when trying to accelerate quickly.Ran very smoothly like a dream any other time.Cel came on and only code was the VTEC solenoid. My husband ordered the gaskets and screen/filter for the '96 model(computer shows this part doesn't come on the '01model, BUT it does) replaced those and changed oil and filter. Cel went off but then began very small fluid leak at the axle!!!! Fluids not low,car runs great but smells like burnt oil.Now what?Just bought it and can't afford costly repairs as we spent all saving to buy!!!Very Aggravated!
