VCM engaging and disengaging – Honda


I have a 2008 Honda Accord 3.5 V6 w AT. I feel the VCM engaging and disengaging. There is a sickening surging sensation – a hybrid like torque feel that is incessant, particularly at highway speeds with cruise control on. What gives? Honda denies any problem – “operating within normal tolerances” Is there a widespread problem with VCM? 


I’ve recently had a few 08’s with this problem. If the dealer uses the HDS scan tool and goes into the power-train side of the computer they can scan for updates and install the latest software patch and that should fix the problem. Also I would reset and follow the crank sensor calibration procedure to ensure the problem goes away. It’s worked so far for me to do those two things to fix it.
