  1. Problems & Issues
    Hey, everyone! I just bought a 2006 Honda Element EX-P AWD with 158k miles. Absolutely love the car but am dealing with the much elusive p2646 code. Already changed the oil, oil filter, oil sensor, and the entire VTEC solenoid (with the correct part straight from Honda), but the car keeps...
  2. Problems & Issues
    I'm hopping into this as i search for my own P2646 solution... 2004 5MT AWD, 160k. Around town it drives great, no issues, no check engine light regardless of engine speeds. If i get on the highway and stay above 60mph, it continues driving fine with good power. When the engine speed...
  3. Under The Hood / Performance
    Long story short I’ve been chasing a P2646 engine code for a while now and finally a shop that specializes in Honda’s was able to determine that my ECU needs replacing as it is not consistently sending a signal to the VTEC assembly. Now I was just going to get the stock ECU but I plan on...

  5. Problems & Issues

  6. Problems & Issues
    Hello Everyone! I'm a 2005 Element owner with 310K miles on it (bought with high mileage from a retired Honda tech - which no longer does any tech'ing). It ran like a top until the last week or so. Once in a while during the week, it would have a extremely short raspy sound and hesitate for...
  7. Problems & Issues
    Well my dear EOC friends I have had my first problem with my Element after 96,000 miles. While driving down the road the other day my malfunction indicator lamp came on. I instantly thought it was my gas cap so I removed and reinstalled it and took off again but I started cutting out and losing...
