ok thanks ill definately try it i just ordered a new vtec solenoid so ill put that in with gaskets. can i use gasket maker for that to see if it works?
alright thanks well hopefully i can get my vtec working i did a motor swap and im throwing like 4 codes its just hell right now for me and this car

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.
im throwing an ELD code, a misfire code, VTEC solenoid, and automatic transaxle but i have 5speed and i have no idea about the misfire how can i check misfires? ive got perfect compression all around
