The Check Engine Light may illuminate due to failure of the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve, or restricted passages in the engine related to the EGR system.

    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

    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

    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.
