    Oil is leaking from the vtec solenoid. I replaced the o ring and added a little extra silicon for extra seal. The cars runs slow specially on highway. Any ideas?

    well if you have a check code for pressure switch, then yeah that could slow your car down because vtec wont engage

    you should never put anything on a o-ring. it could cause it to not seal properly.
