I got a P1259 code. Searched around and found the common issue is low oil level. Checked that and it is right on. Read elsewhere that a few things can be happening in the VTEC system to cause the code. I would like to start with the easy items first like seeing if this VTEC system has the metal screen that could be getting clogged and restricting the oil flow. I have ordered my shop manuals so sometime next week I will be able to track this down. In the mean time I would like to be able to at least inspect the unit. Can anyone give a little help on locating this? I am thinking it is on the front half of the "V" and on the driver's side of the van below the valve cover.
Just to be clear I did reset the codes and it came right back after revving above 4,000 RPM. Now the engine is in "limp" or "safe mode" and won't rev above 3,000 RPM. Drives great below that limit.
If the VTEC system is working correctly and the engine is not making enough oil pressure in general, that would suck. VTEC seems easier to fix/replace than the oil pump.
Thanks in advance.
