#2252 of 2260 Oil Use on '01 Accord
Jan 22, 2013 (12:10 pm)
Thank you for the tip. I tried what you suggested by punching it in 2nd gear to 5000 rpm and then let off to 2500 rpm to allow comprsession to brake the car, then re-accelerated to 4500 rpm and saw NO Smoke or even visible exhaust.
On first start in am there is no exhaust visible only a small amount of water out the tailpipe which clears up shortly.

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 2260 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?
