I'm not sure what year and model you have, but the vtec solenoid screen on the front of the cylinder head clogs up on several models and throws codes and may put the car in "limp" mode. Especially if the oil had been dirty. It needs the vtec gaskets and screen changed.

Take your Honda to a real mechanic instead of a parts changer and have diagnostic codes read.

SOURCE: 2002 Accord EX Check Engine Light Stays On

Some major parts stores offer free code reading. Call your local parts store and ask. Remember that codes give general information that there is a problem with an engine function, so whatever function the code reveals a problem with, can be a number of different things that could be wrong. It is a starting point on your search for the actual problem. So if you know what code # is causing the check engine light to illuminate, you still have to determine what is wrong by checking all the components of that system. It would be a great help to pick up a repair manual for your accord, good luck, God Bless, countrycurt0

It may be as simple as your oil condition or oil level. If you have poor oil in your engine the VTEC system will not operate properly and when RPMs reach 2800 or so it will buck. If everything checks okay with the oil have the code checked for your check engine light/VSA light.

My 2005 Odessay Touring van has a VSA light that has gone on about ten times today. Each time I have to turn off the ignition and turn it back on in order to make it go official. However only once did the...


Thanks for the info... that fixed the problem with the VSA light going on. The error code had nothing to do with the VSA system. Error code said I was low on oil. The dealer I brought it to said the VSA system will not work when you are low on oil. When the VSA warning light comes on, you loose 80% of your engine power because of it. They changed the oil and I have not had the VSA warning light go on since.

I can’t be much help on this one (too new for my experience), but your manual will say this (which probably isn’t all that helpful either).
The vehicle stability assist (VSA) system helps to stabilize the vehicle during cornering if the vehicle turns more or less than desired. It also assists you in maintaining traction while accelerating on loose or slippery road surfaces. It does this by regulating the engine’s output and by selectively applying the brakes.
When VSA activates, you may notice that the engine does not respond to the accelerator in the same way it does at other times. There may also be some noise from the VSA hydraulic system. You will also see the VSA activation indicator blink.
The VSA system cannot enhance the vehicle’s driving stability in all situations and does not control your vehicle’s entire braking system. It is still your responsibility to drive and corner at reasonable speeds and to leave a sufficient margin of safety.
On touring models you will also see a ‘‘CHECK VSA SYSTEM’’ message on the multiinformation display if there is a problem with the VSA system.
Without VSA, your vehicle still has normal braking and cornering ability, but it does not have VSA traction and stability enhancement.
The VSA system automatically turns on every time you start the engine, even if you turned it off the last time you drove the vehicle.
I’d get on the Honda people about the problem, especially since you just got the car. I would think that the alarming sounds you are hearing have to do with the unit working the brakes when it shouldn't be, but that's a guess.
Hope this helps some.
