    I have yet to find an EGR on my 93-94 accord engine F20B or on the intake manifold, or any where else if it comes to that, I'm beginning to think there isn't one, this car is a JDM and it lives in Cyprus, is this an odd car from Honda? a one off experiment? it also has a strange VIN number only ten digits long.

    Get a picture of the engine bud from a few angles am sure someone will spot it.

    This is my E20B engine in Cyprus, any one recognise the intake manigold? there is no EGR inspection plate or valve as you can.



    Here are some better pics after clean up trying to find air leaks with crb cleaner

    Hello and fault code

    Hello to all.

    My first post so a little about me. I work as a Air Crew Controller and live in London. I fly Large RC model aircraft. Large as in 80" wing span.

    A chap I work with had a Year 2000 2.0I VTEC Accord for sale and as I had always wanted one I picked it up. Came with full service history and looking through the paperwork has had a lot of things done to it.

    Six months later well today the EML came on. At work I got one of our skilled boys to check the code and it came out as P1491. I think this points to the EGR valve ( EGR Valve Insufficient Lift).

    From reading the posts on here I see some have cleaned the valve and the rails. Would this be the best thing to do.

    Mke

    Thanks SpeedyGee. I have read through the post and it seems not to bad to do.

    I am able to change my discs and pads and have done a few head gasket changes in the past.

    Your welcome, let us know how you get on.

    I think I'll merge the two threads so we have one thread on the topic.

    Ok.

    Now it seems to have gone back to normal so I will keep an eye on things as the MOT is due on the 13th and I need to replace all the disc's and pads. I will get on with these and see if it happens again.

    Where you say "split" the vac pipe - I can't seem to budge mine, is there a particular way to remove them? Don't want to go soaking it in something inappropriate.

    No worries, just slid off. All done, seems far less lumpy now!

    Only grabbed the one, before I gave it a scrubbing!

    130k miles, doubt that's ever been cleaned before. Certainly appeared to run better today during it's first good run. Cleared up the holes in the manifold with a drill and a (fairly ineffective) portable vacuum. I did manage to knock out one of the injectors from the fuel rail annoyingly getting a bit of petrol everywhere. Dried up quickly thanks to the heat but decided to change the orings just in case i'd damaged them.

    You also have to remember that different engines are done differently, as its not the same on my ATR as in the guide. :Wink:

    Are those injector O-rings generic ones or must they be procured from Honda?

    ...or am I supposed to replace the injector seals? My dealer couldn't say which ones may need replacing. If I change both then it's 11 € per injector...
