2014 Honda Pilot 40K mi engine light and VTM4 light code: P3400


Asked by Mar 28, 2017 at 06:13 PM about the 2014 Honda Pilot EX-L

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi.  My engine and VTM4 light has been on for a couple days.  VTM4 comes
and goes for a 30-1hr ride (not blinking.)  I went to MAVIS.  The code was
P3400. They reset it and both came back on within 15 minutes. Any ideas.
I have 40K  miles, so no warrantee.  Thank you!

P3400 HONDA - Valve Pause System Stuck Off Bank 1...Possible causes; Low engine oil level, Faulty Rocker Arm Oil Control Solenoid, Faulty EOP (Engine Oil Pressure) sensor, Incorrect oil type used, Engine mechanical condition...If the engine oil is OK and you are using 0W-20 oil weight, then replace the Rocker Arm Oil Control Solenoid to fix the problem...

Hi. Thanks for the info. Now the light went off after a few days. Is this common? Should I still get checked? Thanks again.

I think you should get the oil changed.
