I have a 2012 Honda Accord with the K24z3 engine. Unfortunately it suffers from the VCT grind on start up after sitting for long periods. Seems Honda does not have a fix for this issue so I am curious, what kind of long term damage does this have? Also, what is the purpose of this part? Does it mess up the timing chain and tensioner during the grinding, like...it it starving the tensioner and chain of oil/pressure during the grind? Or is the noise just a nuisance? A member on here kindly let me know that you can jump start the engine to avoid the noise, I just think it's silly that on such a new car this is even an issue but thats beside the point..I am just curious what does this part do, and what damage is occuring from the grind. Thanks guys look forward to leaning more about this!
