    Hi team. I got problem with EGR flexible pipe(leaking) so cos more problems on system as well . I try call honda dealers and explain what problems on my 8th Generation 2009 I-DTEC. but they said I don't have any recall related to that. strange thing going on. How can I get that problem solved? I know for sure cu3 have recall on that pipe since 01/09/11 TSB# sl-02-008-00 approved by honda

    Hello @saulenas and welcome to HondaKarma.
    Have a read through this thread ... EGR Pipe Crack. Accord i-DTEC 8th Generation Accord Warranty Extension | Page 4 (Engine & Gearbox - )

    As you can see calling might not work in your favour. Show up to a dealer and politely discuss ... Oh and its customary for new members to atleast introduce themselves here: Introduce Yourself and their car rather than getting straight to the point :Smile: feels a bit impolite.. we are actually nice bunch of people and will give you a warm welcome :Smile:

    You have a tuned N22 with bits which will put stress on your engine mate. The dealers are looking at cars for these mods so you may find you been given short shrift they will find the car not stock with EGR blocked off.

    You can try your luck.

    EGR is not blocked or any visually changes done. as you discussed about flexible pipe is faulty on these cu3. might you think they gona find out about mods? I spoke with guy who done these mods and said is secure for dealers check

    It will pop up on the HDS diagnostics as Honda will want the engine data file from the dealer to look at the engine variables ..dude not being a pr1ck why should owners of tuned cars get extended warranty when their cars are not stock? you chose the extra power so open your wallet for reliability. You can't expect everything for nothing ..

    don't take it the wrong way you would be the same if you ran a business.

    I'm agree with you mate. But this should be done long time ago. Or I'm wrong? Now cosing more issues this bloody pipe. I feeling turbo not working on full boost, some time given fault as boost control implausible. what do you think I shut do in this case. I'm happy to pay for pipe replacement but bit expensive job. Or might change by my self.

    Yes I agree mate it should have been done as long as the car had a full service history. The EGR pipe and replacement is approx 600 quid using new parts. So which dealer have you taken the car to have you shown then the TSB does your car fall within the warranty period of mileage and years?.. if so they should progress it but you may get a rejection its worth a try.
    If you get a knock back I am sure @tviracing in London will help you seal up the pipe and strengthen it , if you ask nicely, it all manners when it come to him :Smile:
