Question about 2000 Honda Civic
It is quite simple to replace the VTEC Solenoid assembly. It is located on the rear right upper side of cylinder head (right side with reference with if sitting if driver's seat) on the intake side. It is attached to the head by means of 6mm bolts. Just remove the connector (NOTE: It my have single VTEC solnoid or two, depending on the model), remove the bolts and take out the solenoid. Please see the diagram:
Hope that works. Thank you for visiting Fixya.

both are located in the exhaust system. You have to get the car off the ground and follw pipes. You cant miss the O2 sensors.

Hey I had the same code and I have a 2000 honda civic lx. My cousin
works at honda and drives a '96 honda civic and he has had that code
before on his car as well.
First thing he came up with was that the catalytic converter was cracked. We checked mines, and lo and behold, that's what it was.
Look under your hood, and there should be a catalytic converter with a sensor sticking out of it. It is connected to the exhaust manifold and the sensor sticks out of the heat shield. Around the sensor, look for a crack. If there's a crack, that's your problem.

P0420: Calayst system efficiency below threshold (Bank no. 1)
You can clear the code by turning your engine off, locating fuse number 12 in your under hood fuse box (backup, radio 7.5A) and pulling that fuse for about 10 seconds. If the code comes back, it was not a glitch and I would have the code checked out (has to do with you catalytic converter, I believe).
Hope this helps you.
