Vtec problems? Maybe?


Hello Everyone!!!
I am not sure if anyone else had this problem or not but. I have about 200k on my car and every time I get on it. About 5500 to 6000 is when vtec should activate I feel no difference at all, and it make a loud rattling sound. Weird. So I back off it right away. I get no trouble codes at all so could it still be my vtec controller? I don’t want to buy something and put it in and it not be the problem. Can anyone help please? Thank you very much folks you all Rock!

It literally sounds like your vtec solenoid/spool valve. Which I have an extra if you need one (probably not since this post is from 2018 lol).
