Honda Accord VTEC Solenoid Gaskets Replacement
In this video I show you how to replace both VTEC solenoid valve gaskets
(valve to cylinder head and solenoid to valve) on 1994-1997 Accords.
This is a common cause of oil leaks on the upper passenger side of the
engine next to the distributor shaft seal, distributor o ring, and valve
It seems the same engineers who buried the Accords fuel filter also decided
to make the VTEC solenoid valve difficult to remove as well. One of the
bolts for the valve is buried so deep you have to partially drain the
cooling system and use a u-joint to get it out.
I take your through the process step by step from removal of all the parts
to re installation.
This video ran a bit longer than I wanted it to but considering how
deceptively easy this job looks at first glance (until you can't get that
one remaining hidden bolt on the valve off to remove it) I decided to leave
in as much detail as possible.
You will need to add new coolant and bleed the cooling system to avoid
engine damage after you're done. If you need that info here is the link to
my cooling system bleeding video.
Honda part numbers used in the video:
Solenoid to valve gasket: 36172-P0A-005
VTEC valve to cylinder head gasket: 15825-P0A-015
VTEC oil pressure switch o-ring: 91319-PR3-003
Thermostat housing to intake gasket: 91312-P0A-000
Thermostat housing to connecting pipe o-ring: 91314-PH7-003
These part numbers should work on all 1994-1997 Accords with VTEC but as
always check with your dealer to confirm these part numbers will work with

2001 Honda Accord Type-R Review
Brendan Coogan takes the 2001 Honda Accord Type-R for a test drive to see
what it has to offer. This 2.2L legendary VTEC engine produces 212bhp,
which is enough to take the Accord to 60mph in 7.5 seconds and onto a top
speed of 145mph.
