1996 Honda Accord Q&A
1996 Honda Accord Question: where is the VCT oil control valve and is it easy to replace?
Only way to know if would fix would be to replace and see if you are not doing the step by step diag for that code. - raiderron
If my memory serves me correctly -- have you changed the engine oil and filter lately? Old oil and a filter restricting flow could cause the code you received. Try the oil change prior to doing any further diagnosis. - DaveJHM
I think there is a small screen between the valve and head that can be cleaned if there is debris in it. Had one in ages ago another shop did a head gasket surfaced the head never cleaned the head properly and swarf plugged up the screen. Dave is right on about oil and filter change first. seen codes for Vtec set when oil level was low. - patrick mannion
