I know I am green on this Honda scene, but I do know enough to know that a VTEC is good to have. I just purchaced a 94 Accord ( had a 91 Civic Hatchback) for $1000. Man said it was loosing water and he didn't know where. I did. Head gasket. I was boiling back over in the overflow. Anyway, What is a Vtec exactly and what should I look for to see if it is working like it should. I see some people are saying theirs doesn't work. Please help. Remember I am learning the honda thing. That does not mean I am an idiot. I did the head gasket on my own so I do know alittle bit just not the VTEC stuff. Thanks. My car has a 2.2 VTEC.
