Do Honda elements have VTEC?

Do Honda elements have VTEC?

Acceleration and Power All Elements are powered by the same 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, which is the same i-VTEC four-cylinder engine found in Honda’s other small SUV, the CR-V. The optional automatic transmission is well-matched to the engine.

What motor is in a 2005 Honda Element?

2.4 L 4-cylinder
2005 Honda Element/Engine

Why did Honda stop making element?

Honda came to the realization that it made a miscalculation by designing a niche vehicle and cut its losses after eight years of dwindling sales. And the automaker didn’t anticipate that the Element’s targeted buyers didn’t have the money to buy it.

Can I unplug my VTEC solenoid?

you could disconnect the oil pressure solenoid but you will set a check engine light and your car will go into limp mode and wont rev past where vtec would engage. Would need to clear codes once re-connected to set normal again. Just shift before vtec engages.

Why does my Honda Element have a VTEC problem?

If your fault is NOT due to a faulty pressure switch, or an electrical circuit fault to or within the PCM, then it is either a bad VTEC control solenoid, sludge clogging the oil circuit OR low oil pressure / oil starvation. Good luck! IT IS ALREADY BROKEN DOWN AGAIN!!!

How does the Honda CRV VTEC oil solenoid work?

The VTEC system increases the amount of intake valve lift for increased power. It accomplishes this by turning a control solenoid ‘ON’ to allow oil pressure into the VTEC control passages to apply pins that will lock the intake rockers. When the oil pressure is present, the pressure switch signal will go high.

What should I do if oil leaking from my VTEC solenoid?

15815-RAA-A02 VTEC Solenoid Valve Filter (manual); spool valve filter assembly (online parts db). If oil is leaking from the VTEC solenoid, it can only be from these two parts. If you are going to inspect the unit, get the filter since it’ll need to be replaced anyway.

Why does my Honda VTEC go into fuel cut mode?

If the pressure switch signal is not logical for the commanded state of the control solenoid, a DTC will set and the PCM will go into a ‘fuel-cut’ mode limiting engine rpm and performance. The PCM simply doesn’t ‘know’ what the state of the intake valves are, so you end up with the symptoms you describe.
