I don't see where I can view the pic. But as long as you removed the end that goes into the transmission and the clip on the spline is still on the old one than the new axle should go in really easy. Just --- with one hand holding the outer end of the shaft and the other end holding the inner end. Slide the spline into the trans and push it in as far as it will go. Then put both hands on the outer cv joint, pull it out a very little and then with some force snap (push) it in. It should go right in, just as long as you haven't already damaged the clip on the end of the spline.
#1701 of 1859 Oil leak from EGR valve area 94 accord ex
Apr 25, 2011 (5:00 pm)
My honda seems to be leaking oil pretty heavily. It looks like it's coming from the back left corner, as I'm standing infront of the car. I replaced the valve cover gasket. Didn't help. I started the car again, when pressure builds it looks like the oil is coming from the base of the EGR valve area. Could this be possible? Would that mean that oil is getting into my exhaust system? This car has over 210,000 miles. 2.2 VTEC engine. I'd like to fix it myself it possible. I don't want to put a bunch of money in this car.
Any advice / help will be much appreciated.

Is this at the exhaust manifold bracket, near the AC compressor? If so that's a known issue---a cracked engine boss that holds the exhaust manifold bracket. You'll have to use some kind of bonding sealer on that crack and then attach a new manifold bracket to the AC compressor bracket. If there is no AC, (DX model) you'll have to install an AC bracket.
Other known areas where this engine leaks would be the cam sensor gasket and the balance shaft seal.

Ok, my mistake. I now believe the part I'm referring to is the Solenoid Assembly. I think maybe I need to replace the Solenoid base Gasket. I'll let you know if that was the problem. Thanks for the help.

Who replaced all the parts?
Did they bleed the system?
There should be a bleeder plug in or near the thermostat housing.
It is also possible to bleed at one of the higher hoses by removing it.
Are you sure it is overheating or is the gauge giving you a false reading?
Could be temperature sensor or gauge is bad.
Are the fans running when hot. If not you need to look at the fan sensors.
The system not being bleed will cause all the sensors to read incorrect.
Look in the radiator cap and see if you can see the water moving.

Nikkie, check to see if you have a head casket leak. I did and use a new stop leak from Advance Auto that is guaranteed to fix it. On the second try it did work, pour it in slowly.

From the sounds of your problem it seems that your fan is wired to the air conditioning which isn't the way it should be. You may have to have it rewired to where it's correctly wired and make sure that it won't continuously go because if it does after that then it's connected to the battery and that's wrong to. I hope this might be a consideration in the problem.
