Well time the cams. it should say up on each of the cam gear and when you have the two cam gears in the up position. there should be a dot facing each other on the cam. then on the crank shaft gear there is also a dot marking. Line that up to the arrow mark on the block located right close to the crank gear. And then have your distributor rotor placed on cylinder one. thats the one closes to the cam gears...

I have a 2004 Honda Civic VTI, the engine checklight came on and I went to 3 different computer diagnostic centres and the scan showed VTEC system failure. I changed the VTEC solenoid, change vtec pre

What is wrong is that you changed a part

You failed to follow any trouble charts because
you have none

The sensor was most likely okey & just doing it's
job of reporting a fault

You could have a mechanical problem such as a timing
belt issue or worn VVT Actuators on the end of the cames

You have to diagnose code related issues & then find out
why a sensor reported as it did

Even if you scoped the sensor you would most likely
assume it was bad,not so,have to keep thinking why the
data was bad

You need professional tools & look at several pieces of data
overlayed on a big sceen at one time

Repair shop or dealer for that issue

My 96 civic 1.6 dohc vtec wont vtec any suggestions why this would happen

vtec is controlled by oil pressure so first check the oil, if it is low that can cause it. if you change your oil the way you should then the solenoid could be bad on most Hondas it is right by the oil filter.

Not worth it you have a D15 DPI with the money you would spend moding that engine you could source a B16a or a B18c and have a much more reliable and mod accepting engine to work with. Plus if you can get the B18c you get a DOHC 1.8L VTEC with an LSD 5speed tranny with wide aftermarket support and extremely cheap to mod.
