    Ok I am going to try and give as much background/information as I can. Recently purchased 2010 Accord Coupe V6 AT. First thing I did was an ATF drain and fill. I did it at a Honda dealership so I doubt they did a 3X drain and fill, but I did use the better DW1 fluid. VCM was horrible, especially...

    Hi all, I'm looking into getting a used '16 Accord Coupe EX-L V6. I love the car, but the one thing giving me hesitation is VCM. My questions aren't so much about the "feel" of the car when VCM is enabled, they're more about the long term reliability. From the bit of research I did, it looked...

    Let's start from the beginning. I may overload you with details, but maybe something will be a clue so bear with me. I bought this car, it's been dealer maintained it's whole life, it now has 125k on it, I've had it for less than an oil change and it seems to be falling apart. I got a Cyl 3...

    Hello everybody, This is my first post on this forum. I need some suggestions on how to proceed with a problem I am having with my 2009 accord v6. As many of you know, I am having problems with constant fouling plugs and misfires due to the VCM. I have read plenty of posts about the recall...

    The Check Engine Light came again yesterday. P0430 again, but I did not erase it right away this time. I read some post here or somewhere else (maybe Odyssey forums) and wiki page, "ECO" light indicates VCM kicked in. But after I got the CEL with P0430, "ECO" never came on. In the past...
  6. Performance
    I've had problems out of my car for about the past month now. Beginning with the P0420 catalytic system/converter below threshold for about a month. I had the bank "B" converter replaced back in May of last year (I think that's what they referred to it as.) and have not had any problems until...

    Hello everyone i have searched in the forums but i can't really find the exact answer i am looking for. I have already checked the oil and it is fine, i have ordered a new oil pressure switch and hoping that is the case because i can't find a new solenoid for my car (2008 honda accord v6 EX-L)...

    Hey everyone, as an automatic v6 owner I suffer from severe vcm aggravation. From reading of multiple threads on forced induction I feel its safe to to assume most other automatic owners do as well. I recently ordered a "VCMuzzler" (A google search will provide links to many forum threads by its...

    Hi everyone - Frequent reader and first time poster here. I have a question regarding the 9th gen's ANC system. I recently purchased a used 2013 Accord EX-L V6 AT Coupe, and noticed that I do experience quite a bit of engine noise at lower RPM range (1,000 - 3,000). This is especially true...

    Question for you guys.... If you take the I4 with CVT and drive it in stop and go for say 40 mins where the speed doesn't go above 40km/h. Will the V6 with VCM running on 3 cylinders fair better than the I4 running on 4 cylinders? So take out any bursts of power where the motor would run on...
  11. The 8th Generation
    I was just wondering if any here were one of the unlucky ones that had the V6 VCM misfire, oil consumption problem and needed the full remedy at say 80k miles i.e. (short block, pistons,rings, plugs, etc.) is it a permanent fix, or will the problem reoccur in another 50k miles or so? Anyone...

    I travel the same route everyday in all the beautiful seasons Illinois has to offer. I noticed very distinctly that when outside temperatures are below 20F or so, the mpg shift does not go to the 45 mpg position when the VCM (variable cyclinder management) should be engaging or usually...

    I had gotten a "mixed" reaction in a thread I started about my warning beeper/chime for the seatbelts/"fob in car" warning here: http://www.driveaccord.net/forums/showthread.php?p=2157874. I've also noticed a marked increase in the VCM "boom" and vibration in the last couple of months, so when...

    I bought Touring a month ago and recently found out that my car has this crazy noticeable vibration. I've read a few threads about the vibration, and it seems that the vibration is caused by VCM. So I'm hoping if someone can tell me how to disable it. I don't care how much gas VCM can save. I...

    Hey I was just curious about which gets more mpg? The VCM on an 08 Honda accord coupe v6 or the manual Honda accord coupe v6? I was also wondering if the gas mileage was alot different in the automatic? For example, will people with manuals go to the gas station more often then the people with...
  16. The 8th Generation
    I'm planning on buying a 2010 V6 coupe. I do 95% hwy at 70MPH cruising speed. My question is what is my max cruising speed to only have the 3 cylinders working to have the least gas consumption? I've read that at 80mpg cruising speed vcm works on 4 cylinders. Thanx.

    Hi everyone. This may have been asked before, but I searched a whole bunch and couldn't find anything. So if it is already in another thread, just point me to that thread. Anyway, I picked up my 09 Accord EX-L V6 with an auto tranny a couple weeks ago and I love it. Just one little oddity...

    1. Has anyone been to any dynos yet? If so, they need to put them dyno sheets up, so we can see what's going on power-wise.. 2. Will the engine be unevenly worn out due to VCM shutting off the fuel/spark on 3 of the cylinders, i.e. will that bank be worn out differently than the one always...
