Question about 1998 Honda Accord
The VTEC system malfunction code.. can anyone explain this to me into more efficient details so i can fix the problem myself instead of taking it to a mechanic..and spending a huge amount on a mechanic...please.
I have a 1998 Honda Accord EX. I had the check engine light come on as well and I had the code read by PepBoys. The code was:P1259 or VTEC SYSTEM Malfunction.
I Don't know jack about were to start to fix this problem, so I bit the bullet and took the car to my Honda Dealer. The problem was checked out and was told this.
( REPLACE VTEC VALVE ASSEMBLY)
I had them do the work because I dont know how to do this. So after $204.00 in Labor and $162.29 in parts, for a grand total $366.29, The car was fixed!!!!!!! Run's great and no check engine light on anymore. So to help you out as best I can, here is the numbers that are on my work sheet. I dont know witch numbers represent the part number but this is how it looks on my paper.
1 15810-PAA-A02 8108797-90870 VALVE ASSY, SPOOL $150.75
1 15825-P0A-015 8161598-15999 FILTER, SPOOL VALVE $11.54
There you go! I hope this gives everyone a place to start. maybe get your self a Haynes Repair Manual (#42014 is for the 1998-2002 Honda Accord, all models) and try to do the work your self. Good luck to all of you form Donald M. in SoCal.
