Vtec not engaging

Recommended Posts

Every time my vtec should kick in it doesnt and i smell something burning. kind of smells like plastic, maybe a seal? anyone else ever have this problem? Or any advice on where to start troubleshooting. Wiring seems fine. previous owner did do kind of a hack job on it though... wiring that is.


the engine is a d16z6 btw.

if you are smelling something burning and it doesnt smell like oil you are probably melting wires somewhere




as for the troubleshooting there is a sticky about what to look at and check if vtec is not working



after triple checking ALL wiring and what is on the list.. let us know
