what will cause the maintance required light to come on after a oil change?

The car runs fine, but the code says the egr system has a problem. A mechanic today said it'd be $80 just to see if the valve is working properly. Is there a way I can test it? What is needed to test an electronic EGR valve?
Thanks

car making noise while engine start

finished working on a friends car...started mine and proceeded to drive away. he promptly called me to tell me that my taillights just quit working. i have headlights but nothing else as far as exterior wiring. so basically i have brake lights and headlights.no taillights or parking lights....everything else works as supposed to...
i insert a new 10a fuse and as soon as i turn on the headlight switch it blows...iv attempted to trace out the visible grounds and only have the hidden ones (ie behind dash) left...does anyone have any idea on what the cause could be or how to fix or bypass headlight switch altoghter...
Thanks

2000 Honda Accord EX
In the morning car will start and run fine. After car is turned off and sits, it will not start right away. Ignition key turns, radio works, lights work but engine will not catch to start and stay running. After the car sits for about an hour, it will start with no problem. Timing belt has recently been replaced as well as an engine mount belt. Sometimes has to pump the gas petal to make the car stay running. Car has had regular service and no other major problems.

I have a 2001 Honda Accord that needs a new transmission. The Honda dealer said it would cost around $5000. Can you tell me if this price is about accurate or could I get it done much cheaper? And, would you recommend only a Honda dealer replace it or can someone else do it with just a good of a job? Also, I have 130,000 miles. Any recommendations for the area with zip code 23188 or 23601. Thank You

left side has a knocking noise if you need a wheel alignment does that make a weird noise too?

P1491 EGR System

p1449, battery deterioration
How can I clean the EGR system, I searched for the PCV valve and could not find it, though I found a fixed entry port into the intake manifold
Are computer updates to the 'brain' & battery free by the dealer?
thanks

I've taken the 2 outboard screws off, but can't get the lens off. There seems to be no other screws.

Sometimes it is difficult to remove the key from the ignition lock cylinder. The dash shows a flashing green key. The lock cylinder is worn but, I need to know if the ignition switch should be replaced. When turning the key to the start position the car does not crank at all. The radio will sometimes go off in the run position when jiggling the key.

I JUST GOT A 99 HONDA PASSPORT ON SEPT 17 2010 AND NOW THE A/T OIL TEMP LIGHT HAS COME ON TWICE. WHEN AT A STOP LIGHT IT TAKES A LONG TIME FOR THE THE TRUCK TO TAKE OFF SOUNDS LIKE THE TRANSMISSION IS SLIPPING. THE WARRANTY PEOPLE AT DEALERSHIP IS TAKING FOREVER TO CALL ME BACK

I recently took out my front seat to get a bracket welded. When installing it back, I grabbed the threaded rod covered with a black plastic tube that moves the seat back and forth. I pulled it completely out, I have tried to fix it, to no avail. Any experience with this thing?

Where is the location for the obd connection?

Engine has flat spot in accelarater, suspect tps switch.

my resistor blower stopped working mechanic said $400.00 for part and labor. He uses genuine honda parts. Is this a fair price?

The brakes feel spongy, sinking to the floor when applied. Pumping brakes slowly helps some. No change in brake fluid level. No noise from brakes. When stopped at a light, brake pedal slowly sinks further unless pumped. Help!

My brother-in-law has a 92 accord wagon w/ 4cyl and a manual trans. When shifted into 3rd gear, the engine revs high after clutch is released and then idles back down.Doesn't happen all the time.Any suggestions ?

how do I remove the steering pump?

I have 130,000 miles and my transmission started slipping last year. I took it to Williamsburg Honda and they said I needed a new transmission. He said he would drive it until I could not drive it any more before replacing it. That is the only major problem I have. I don'tknow if it is worth it to replace it or to get a new vehicle.

the engine light came on a day after Midas replaced the clutch master, clutch slave and clutch kit. they did a lousy job after charging me over $700 dollars for labor. I had to return it the first time after the car wouldn't start. They finally fixed the clutch. then the engine light came on. they said code 6 was indicated. however, after checking it, they said there was nothing wrong and I should ignore the engine light. now the car is taking a long time to start. this has all happened within days apart. what would you suggest I do now?

Since hitting a curb hard enough to slash a front tire (passenger side), I have noticed a clicking sound as I turn right or left, apparently from one of the front wheels on the side nearest the direction I am turning. Not consistent: sometimes no click. Wheels were realigned after new tire was installed.

I have a power driver's seat. It reclines fine, but it will only return to an upright position halfway. It begins to make a clicking sound halfway up. I am forced to drive in a reclining position. There doesn't seem to be anything stuck in the treads, but I can't figure out why it's stuck and clicking.

Steering wheel pulls in sync with tire rotation, shudder at higher speed, not felt when braking

Its never been diagnosed etc.

When I turn my ignition on, the doors lock. When I turn my radio on and off, the doors lock. When I turn my car off, it locks. The car will not alarm via remote key, but will lock.
I had the battery tested for load and was good. I checked all the fuses. They were good.
