    Check to see if you ECU is throwing any codes. Sounds to me like you engine is in "limp home" mode.

    huh?

    if you're throwing a code, of course the car isn't going to run good.

    PULL the code. there's a how-to int he articles section

    problem solved
    it was the vtec pressure switch
    didnt have the monoey to get a new one yet
    but if any one is in my situation you can hit it against the ground really hard And it should work again for a while
    Mine lasted for another day or two then I took it off again smacked it against the ground and its been about two days and still works fine

    Wow... I'm still laughing about that. I think you should pin that in the How-to section.

    If the VTEC Pressure solenoid does not function in your B18, pull it off your car and beat it on the ground.
