Check engine light came on, acceleration was degraded, took vehicle to manufacture and they verified it was a compressed EGR valve. Honda suggested it be repaired immediately the estimated cost is $300 plus dollars. We are checking for recalls on this part. Repairs have not been made yet.
Egr stuck open
Check engine light, poor starting, rough idle - Dealer diagnosed
The check engine light came on, so I took the car into the dealership to diagnose the condition. The vehicle is 2-1/2 years old but, over the 36K mile threshold for manufactures warranty, but I was informed that it could be covered under the emission portion of the warranty which is 8yr/80K. We also purchased a 120K mile extended warranty purchased at the dealership. . Apparently this part is not covered under either warranty. It was roughly a $300 repair.
Has been going on for quite a while but was originally told it was the emissions (bad catalytic converter). Car started running really rough, almost stalling out and would not start properly.
