    Default Vtec not kicking in?

    i got a 2000 gsr and when i push it to the red line, the max that the rpm will go is only 5k rpm and it wont let me go any higher? vtec is not working!
    anyone had this problem before?
    do i need to do a tune up?

    Did you check the VTEC oil? it's in that little canister by the firewall and has a couple metal lines coming out of the bottom?

    check the regular oil and if its low top it up with the same oil if u can
    after that if it still doesnt work
    drive to your mechanic and get it checked out

    @ this thread.

    Your oil pressure is too low or your VTEC solenoid is broken.
