Just thought I would pass on the solution that took the dealer two days to fix. I have a Black 2003 EX with 53,000 miles. My check engine light came on and I noticed that it seemed like I was out of gas after 3000RPM if I floored it. It was always 3000RPM that it would not go past even if i didnt floor it.

Solution:
I will see if I can post the receipt word for word but it said the VTECH Solenoid, valve, and screen was cleaned.

Account Exec:
A Customer states after engine is warmed up- RPM cannot go past 3000 & Check Light Comes ON.

Tech:
VERIFIED THAT CHECK ENGINE LIGHT IS ON. CLEARED CODE AND STILL REACCURED. TOOK APART VTEC SOLONOID AND CLEANED OUT VALVE AND SCREEN. REASSEMBLED AND TEST DROVE USING HONDA's REACCURANCE PROCEDURE AND IT DID NOT COME ON. IF PROBLEM RETURNS, VTEC SOLONOID ASSEMBLY MAY NEED REPLACING.
Apparently this tech wasnt known for his spelling but ITS FIXED!

*three cheers!*
