my mechanic says my egr is clogged and needs replacing and the orifaces and channels or tubes need to be cleaned. He wants $300 labor --says it will take 6 hrs. Is that about right???

    Common problem on the Acura, labor rate to remove the intake manifold is a little over 2.5 hours add, .5 to remove EGR and .5 to clean passages is even generous time allotted. Not very difficult or high skill level repair.
