P1259 is a code for vtec malfunction usually cause by a bad vtec solenoid, vtec pressure sensor, low oil level, bad connection. Was oil change done? May want to check the oil level. P1166 is a code for a primary o2 sensor 1.

My vtec on my 2000 honda civic si keeps going out it just happened recently. I was in fourth gear and the rpms were at about 6000 and then the check engine light came on. It came out with the code p1259,...


It's probably an oil issue. The Vtec requires a specific amount of oil pressure to work properly. You could be low on oil, you could have the wrong viscosity oil, or you could have an oil pressure problem such as a bad oil pump or worn engine bearings. Any of these will cause that code. An oil change with the proper oil would be a good place to start.

The P1259 : is problem in the VTEC Oil Pressure Switch circuit or VTEC Solenoid Valve circuit.
check the wire on the VTEC Oil Pressure if it's loose.

Fault engine is showing in the meter the number of engine is 1259


If the car is not having any run issue I would definitely check the oil level. The code translates p1259 as VTEC System Malfunction. I would also ask if you have changed the oil recently. Typically running 10/40 rather than 5/30 in these motors can cause this code to be generated.

CEL Error Code p2227


P2227 is thrown for barometric pressure circuit range/performance error. I'm researching what causes it since I have the same thing on my turbocharged Accord.
