Its probably your Vtec solenoid. If it's clogged up, it'll prevent you from engaing Vtec. Are you able to rev over 4k rpm?

Its your vtec solenoid bro same thing happened to me you can only go to honda for this. You dont have to replace the whole solenoid try replacing the gasket that faces the motor first if this doesnt work you will probably have to change the whole thing (its expensive too).

You could hear your accord hit vtec? I could never hear mine. The k20 on the other hand...

You might have to clean/replace that screen (filter) that sits in your vtec solenoid. Also, scan your car to make sure no other codes popped up.

If the solenoid and the screen are clean... check your oil pressure sensor and your water temp sensor.. I had the same problem literatly two day ago lol it was the water temp senso on the side of the head under the distributor..
