Could it also be the vtec oil pressure solionoid assembly too? Or is this on another model?

It is located in the rear cylinder head on the driver side next to the valve cover. the part number is ***** . The vtec solenoid valve is on the other model. 99% of the time its this switch that fails . Here is a link to the location.

Thanks, ***** ***** have another diagram or picture? The one sent looks like it's cut off and I can't see much

Will this require me to take the intake manifold bolts out and take off? Or is this external ?

You just need to take the plastic engine cover off .You can reach around and get to it. Here is some better drawings

Great picture .. just to clarify in reference to the picture the rocker arm control solinoid is what I'm replacing? Is that another term for the oil pressure sensor?

The part you are replacing is called the EOP sensor in this picture . stands for engine oil pressure sensor

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
