Hi all.Recently bought an 03 accord coupe 3.0 Vtech.Has an AEM V2 cold air intake and flowmaster dual exhaust.Mileage is 260K.The car has been working perfectly up until a week ago.Now when I drop the hammer the engine drops out at around 5000 rpm,best I can explain what its doing is it sounds like its hitting a rev limiter,but car does not have one.If I accelerate gradually taking it to the floor its fine,but thats no good cause I like dropping the hammer and letting her rip.Before I start dropping cash and running to garages that will most likely rip me off was hoping someone in here may have a little insight as to whats happening to the car,I need my fun back.Any input,advice or opinions are welcomed and greatly appreciated.Thank you all in advance.

 

Cheers.

Hi and thanks for the reply.The CEL is on but it has been for about a month or so and this just started happening.I checked oil and it is down about a quart,I will top it up tonight and see what happens and will reply to let you know.Thanks much again James and cheers.

If the light has persistently been on, then you have no way of knowing whether or not a new code has been stored that could be related to your recent development; the light will not get brighter as more codes are stored.

 

Pull the codes, clear the ECU.

The CEL was on for 02 sensor,buying that this weekend,but I did top up the oil and now the car runs like a champ again.Cool option I suppose not letting engine over rev if low on oil,but scared the hell out of me thought was in for an expensive fix for sure.So your first solution solved the problem and for that I thank you.If I had of taken it to a garage around here I would have gotten ripped off for sure,so you saved me some cash too and I thank you for that.....Cheers.
