Check engine lite came on. Had Autozone check and they told me the IMRC valve was the problem. I had not heard of this part before. Can not be gotten at any of the parts stores, only through Honda. I need to find out how to replace it and what it looks like. I usually do repairs myself, but I do not even know what looks like or where at on the engine it is.
The maintenance required and check engine light came on. Autozone testing showed code 1077 for intake manifold pressure sensor problem. I understand that this is difficult to fix as even replacing $800 solenoid may not solve the issue. Please advise what woudl be a more conclusive way of diagnosing the problem. Thanks!
replaced still got the same problem
I replaced the all canister system assembly, and surprise.. the light wont go of.
Failed emissions test. Told to replace IMRCV
check engine light would come on but when I had it checked nothing came up the first 3 times it did it. Was also having an electrical problem at the time. Once I had my starter replaced, the light remained on. this time when they checked it, it gave the imrc codes. I haven't fixed it yet. trying to find directions to do it myself.
