    Check Crank angle sensor circuitry; in case wires are too close to one of the pulleys they may got trapped and disconnected; in case of disconnection, limp mode will be active and will automatically limit to 3K RPM

  • Christian Skovgaard Jeppesen

    Have You guys tried an original oil filter? If you don't use the original oil filter you WILL LOSE V-TECH FUNCKTION in the engine ! I know this for a fact cause I've worked with Honda in Denmark for nearly 12 years now 😊 also that cam shaft sensor with high voltage will solve the main problem but I will recommend changing that oil filter 😉
    Peace out ✌

    Could also be the MAP sensor if I'm not mistaken. My first car had a bad one and for $40 it stopped my car from being "stuck" at 3k rpm as well. Worth a shot.

  • James Fredrick
    James Fredrick 19 days ago

    Hello Goonzquad replace the TPS and pull out and install the ECU from the other car that engine was pulled from.... Its spec's,aka codes and setting for all of the sensors are tuned for that engine.... This entire file is loaded aka flashed to its ECU core chip.... So replace the ecu and do a hard reset on it and it should run like a champ again

    Take the battery cables off and hold them together for at least one minute. It should bring the engine out of lymph mode.

    I have your solution!! Its called a variable camshaft solenoid. its sticking and you need to replace it along with the filter

  • Ranger Rick
    Ranger Rick 21 day ago

    I dunno guys - those were different engines with different sensors and different harnesses... to be honest, I'm surprised you got it running. I'm not surprised it's not running well. Think you have to take it to the Honda dealer and get them to do a full scan to see what is exactly giving you the issues... otherwise you may be just guessing and part replacing for awhile...

  • vladimir saakian
    vladimir saakian 21 day ago

    You guys are on the right track starting with the positioning cam sensor. The engine sounds solid as well. I had the vtec solenoid go bad on me before and it didnt go into limp mode as well. So I doubt its that. Its most likely the sensor.

  • obadillo
    obadillo 21 day ago

    Perhaps you need to swap the ECUs as well, especially if the sensors are visibly different.. you might want to try that

  • Kenneth Martin

    Hey guys I had the same problem with my truck make sure u have a ground to the cam sensor and then a power if u don't have one or the other follow the wire cause about half my engine was dead because I was missing one fuse

  • The Hoodlum Brothers

    I would swap the cams back, out the other valve cover back on and take the ecu out of the other s2k and install it in the running car since the harness and the motor cane out of the other car. So use the other ecu as well

  • Bernward
    Bernward 21 day ago

    I know exactly what your problem is dudes as I swapped a Face-lift engine in my non Face-lift shell:
    Your crankshaft position sensor wheel is different, too!
    You have to swap this thing around also as your Face-lift ECU is expecting other patterns.
    Only to change the camshaft sensor wheel will let her fire up but as you see will result in a check engine light.
    So no need to swap the ECU around from the other car.
    But it requires a bit of work as you have to take the chain case of and the oil pan to put the chain case back on witouth damaging the headgasket due to the very tight fitment.
    By the way here in Europe there's no AP1 or AP2 we got the same 2 litre engine in the Preface lift and Face-lift model in the US you have the 2.2 litre engine in the AP2 I wonder if the tube is right then as the AP2 only revs to 8.000 and the AP1 to 9.000.
    Do you have the 2 litre version in or the 2.2?
