2000 Acura RL 150,000 mi,
Check enging light came on around 150,000. Car is running ok, but the code pulled was EGR valve malfunction.
1996 Acura RL 180,000 mi,
Need to know what I can do my EGR valve is bad and need to know how to replace it and fix problem please
I GET VERY POOR GAS MILEAGE, CHECK ENGINE LIGHT IS ON , FAILED EMISSIONS , DEALER MECHANIC SAID I NEED EGR VALVE SERVICE . WILL THIS MAKE ME GET BAD GAS MILEAGE ALONE . I DID REPLACED AIR FILTER AND NEW SPARK PLUGS
same problem, EGR code at 85K, removed tube from back side of engine, cleaned out ports with drill bit (by hand) replaced tube, did not recurr - found posting on internet with pictures etc, acurazine site I think.
My check engine light is illuminated and I scanned it and it tells me that I have insuffecent EGR flow and am looking for advice as to take the upper manifold off and clean the lines.

Having this issue now, light came on about 2 weeks ago. Doesn't effect Performance. I was told that the imntake manifold needs to be removed and all passages need to be cleaned
i replaced the egr valve and 19 miles later it was on again. now im going to clean the intake to see if that will end this problem.

Diagnostics said the egr is clogged and won't pass emissions. Told they have to remove the intake manifold and clean the egr with solvents. Quoted $630 mostly in labor.

Had the Egr valve cleaned.
1999 Acura RL 157,000 mi,
Light came on, port was clogged, just done to my wife's 2002 on Warranty, refused to do mine on Warranty, it has been babied, oil changed every 3,000, highway miles etc. Run Premium all of the time and take great care. The gas mileage increased almost Four (4) Miles Per Gallon City and as much as Six (6) to Eight(8) on the highway. This should have been covered on warranty, Bloomington Acura did listen to me and gave me some help on the cost. This should be a Warranty/Recall item for every 1999 Acura RL
EGR Valve error. Had it fixed about 30000 miles ago and here we go again
1996 Acura RL 100,000 mi,

2000 Acura RL 109,000 mi,
Check engine light on due to egrsystem. I had it cleaned a year ago and just took it in for this again. I think the sensor is too sensitive...I wont pay for this again...roughly $500.00 each time.

Clogged EGR Valve 1999 Acura CL 3.0
1997 Acura RL 140,000 mi,
I had to remove the entire intake manifold and cleaned the crud out with solvents. Replaced sensors that were under the manifold and redid valve seals while the surgery was under way.
