    Hi,

    As i drive my car with no speedometer or odometer functioning for the fact i know its not the VSS...Oil is leaking right under the Vtec where the oil pressure sensor is located... My guess that this is, is because pressure is being given to the vtec and the vtec isnt kicking and oil is blushing out...??? my guess....

    Im thinking there is a shortage or something with the speedometer/odometer wiring but i dont know how to do any of these...and there so much wires involved...i know everyone HATES wiring when it comes to it....It did not work either before i swap the motor... AND my cluster lights doesnt work either..so im driving at night lighting with my cig. lighter all the time...

    5th gear running at 2000 rpm im running about 45 mph
    At 3000 im running about 70 mph
    Testiment with my brother at speed rate ... =) LOL

    Motor: B18C1

    Seriously Help Me Out !

    Bought a new vtec gasket was $21.78 after tax, was a 5 minute job...vtec gasket was so sticky i had to tap it with my palm hand and it moved, i did it again it popped off to the side a little and i took it off and oil gushes and spells all over the tranny down to the ground....

    replaced gasket and the oil leak stopped IMMEDIATLY after re-bolting the bolts back in place...

    To whoever is doing the same job i am...Clean all the burnt oil or whatever thats dirty while u have the chance too...after u put it back in, you'll have a hard time cleaning it later for the fact there isnt much room....

    Now that the new gasket is installed and no oil leak or pressure leaks...the vtec seems to kick in more stronger..."I THINK THE GASKET MAKES THE WHOLE ENGINE A LITTLE MORE STRONGER"

    Well thanks to all who helped...=)
