Check engine light came on my 2004 Honda Element ...

Resolved Question:

Check engine light came on my 2004 Honda Element after the car stuttered at about 65 mph. Reduced my speed, car ran smoothly. Last time this happened at 42,626 miles, OBD code said the oil pressure switch was experiencing low voltage. Honda TSB recommended replacing the switch. Did so, car has run smoothly since then until last night. Could that switch have gone bad again?

Its not very likely the switch went bad again. I would check the oil level first. make sure its not low to the point where the Vtec isnt engaging because of it. If its full or within range than i would suspect the "spool valve" Its the valve that the switch screws into. Sometimes they stick and can cause problems.
