    it could yes. vtec has to have pressure to work. besides it needs to be fixed anyhow. give it a try

    i wouldnt use a gasket maker,it will just clog up the ports,
    clean the surfaces really well and put a new gaset,but if your set on gasket maker use BLACK RTV and apply it smooth and even

    just use a new gasket. if you have 4 codes, the vtec problem could be any one of them.

    Werd. I wouldnt even waste the time tryin to use gasket maker. Think of the saying, "If you dont have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it again?" It always applies.
