2003 Honda Civic Q&A

2003 Honda Civic Question: I keep getting a P401 code EGR flow insufficent on my 2003 honda civic 1.7

I have cleaned around the EGR port several times but still getting the code. After cleaning I can run the car for about 30 minutes but will still get the code. I have even bought a new one but still getting the code. What else could be wrong. -
Answer 1
the amount of vacuum to the valve. hondas are common for carbon clogging the vacuum ports to the egr. have a shop verify this. Roy -
Comment 1
What ports are you talking about this only has an electrical connection to the top of the valve.. -
Comment 2
when you remove the valve, there are 2 ports. one is exhaust and one engine vacuum. the engine side tends to clog badly with carbon. Roy -
