DIAGNOSIS NOTE: If you’re reading this service bulletin on ISIS and your computer has sound, click on the picture to hear an example of the engine rattle.

1. Allow the oil to drain from the VTC system by not starting the engine for at least 6 hours. 2. Start the cold engine, and immediately listen for a loud rattle: Do you hear a loud rattle that lasts about 2 seconds? Yes - Go to REPAIR PROCEDURE. No • If you hear a different noise, continue with normal troubleshooting. • If you don’t hear an abnormal noise, get more information from the customer and, if needed, continue with normal troubleshooting. REPAIR PROCEDURE Replace the VTC actuator: • Refer to pages 6-30 and 6-31 of the 2008–2009 Accord Service Manual, or • Online, enter keywords VTC ACT, and select the appropriate engine’s VTC Actuator, Exhaust Camshaft Shaft Sprocket Replacement from the list. NOTE: Because a new VTC actuator comes in its unlocked position, you don’t need to do step 3 of the VTC actuator replacement procedure, unless the VTC actuator locks during handling. A VTC actuator must be installed in its unlocked position to avoid damaging its internal locking pin.
