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.

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.
