    Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    I'm helping my dad with his 2003 Honda CRV. Last week the P1259 code came on while he was on his way to work, and the car would shutter around 3000 rpm. At first we assumed the shuttering was due to transmission problems. First thing I did was do a flush and fill on the tranny. Of course this...

  10. VTEC operation

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    how does vtec actually work. I understand it moves the cams so there lobe profile is altered, but what if it isn't working? is that possible, maybe some solenoids or actuators that could fail and not move the camshafts when required, or would this set an engine light? I always thought you...
