Hello and welcome to just answer, my name is ***** ***** master tech here to help. I cannot see or hear your vehicle so I rely on your input to my questions so I can help you better. I read your question and have an answer for you. Yes this code refers to a VE TEC malfunction which is quite common to certain Honda models. i HAVE KEPT THIS SPECIFIC VIDEO JUST FOR PEOPLE WITH THAT PROBLEM, IT SHOWS AND DESCRIBES EXACTLY WHAT IT IS AND WHAT TO DO. REMEMBER TO CANCEL THE CODE AFTER THE REPAIR, AND IN THE FUTURE EVERY 30 - 40 ,000 MILES DO AN ENGINE OIL FLUSH AND CHANGE OIL REGULARLY. Hope this helps you out and if your happy please take the time to rate my service, thank you and happy new year.
