so I think we can rule out valve guides or stem seals.

OK, thanks for the help, hopefully I can get this figured out sooner rather than later.
#2256 of 2262 1999 Check Engine light with EGR code
Jul 27, 2013 (10:10 pm)
My 1999 Accord has the Check Engine Light with code P401, EGR flow insufficient.
I replaced the valve. Light came back.. I opened the valve with direct voltage and engine idle was a little rough. MAP went up from 28 to 35 %. I removed the valve and started engine. I have vacuum at the inlet port and exhaust blowing from the exhaust port.
Does anyone know how the computer detects low EGR flow ?
and how do I clean the EGR ports if that is what is needed ?

I have a 99 accord that would randomly stall on the highway, very dangerous if this happens, anyways took it to a honda dealer and there was a recall on the ignition switch. They replaced it for free.

Does the recall apply to the 2000 Honda Accord LX ?

Probably. Call up your Honda dealer and give him your VIN number so he can check it.

I know this blog is old. However, I have an I4 99 Honda Accord and recently had a p1456 code. Problem is that there is an extra vacuum port on this plastic "Y" shaped vacuum that has nowhere to go but inside the 2 way valve cover. What does this extra port go into? Or is it capped off?
#2261 of 2262 98 Accord Cutting Out
Dec 05, 2013 (6:40 pm)
98 Accord is cutting out intermittently when warmed up. EGR new & ports clean in intake, no vacuum leaks found, happens at low end runs great above 2500 RPM's never dies just drops off to just below normal idle range then back to wherever it was. 2000 RPM down to 400 or so then right back to 2000. Just replaced the Main Relay and no change. It does this about half the time when the car gets to operating temps. Injection system just cleaned.
Also, I cant hear the fuel pump run when I turn the switch but would it run at all if the fuel pump wasn't working??

I have a 98 as well - Try the idle air control valve. I'd say w/ 95% certainty that's it. It's a PIA to get at and is located between the firewall and near the throttle body. I believe 2 or 3 screws to remove...you have to really feel for them. The IAC has a few coolant lines attached. I would suggest just removing the screws and leaving the coolant lines in tact. That should give you enough clearance to lift the IAC high enough up to spray with some heavy duty carb cleaner. You have to work it over good and get all the carbon and crud gone. When you screw it back on you should be able to use the same rubber gasket but you might want to put a little blue rtv sealant on to hold the gasket in place. Your other option is to replace the IAC with a new one but they are a bit spendy. My accord has 215K and I did this 15K ago with no issues since. Good luck!
