Re: power loss at 4000 rpm

wont rev past 4k rpm??? first check ur oil, vtec is run by oil pressure, if ur low, add some, it may fix it. if that doesnt fix it, have the code pulled, and tell us what it is, maybe we can help

i bet its vtec system malfunction. check oil and the vtec solenoid screen filter for dirt.
