35

iv had 6 and im 19. Not one failed.

7,775

Why so many in such little time?

3,015

why not? my friend is 22 and hes had about 19 cars so far

7,775

Why has he had so many? I mean does he enjoy going through the hassle of inspection and licensing every few months? I can understand if he flops cars, but if not that's a lot of paper work and taxes and fees... Well I guess I'm being forgetful of the fact that this forum is not just local... Perhaps ya'll don't have to deal with emissions and safety inspections or have to pay a sales and licensing tax... I mean here you end up paying several hundred dollars just to get a decent car road legal... I can't imagine someone wanting to do that more than once every few years...

ANYWAYS, back on subject =P VTEC solenoid probably doesn't fail that often, however the screen might be dirty... check it next time you get the chance

NEVER heard about that... About 12 years of V-TEC exploitation... One turbo, some over 200000km of duty, Many frend/forum too... Never heard of that... Maybe I misunderstood your question... Maybe your oil level is low (usdm/cdm market have a V-tec sensor to check for enought oil in the head to 'open' v-tec...)... P.S: V-TEC rulez!
