What code specifically is it throwing?

Replacing the EGR is a job a DIYer can do. Have you cleaned the ports yet? What year car, etc.?

You might just need an EGR port cleaning.

You can look in the factory direct area for a TSB issued that shows how to do this. Also, a factory Helms manual is a good purchase if you plan to DIY.

the accumulation of carbon on the valves sometimes triggers the check engine light so a little bit of cleaning may help. but if it doesn't, i think your EGR valve needs replacement.

i recently replaced my valve cover gaskets and by taking off the intake (the header looking part that have to come off to get to the back valve cover and also connects to the rubber intake where the air filter sits) i saw a tiny hole, smaller than the rest and its was all clogged up, so i poke it and cleaned it and my egr check engine light is now gone! i think thats the problem for most most egr valve check engine light because its clogged up by dirt particle and just needs to be clean, i tried a new egr, tried cleaning the hole where the egr sits on with a metal brush that looks like a baby bottle cleaner but no use?? thank god i changed my valve cover gasket to see that problem, i think the egr routes to the intake to mix gas with air? but my problem fixs now so hope this helps..... i dont know much part name but yeah....... autozone stilled hired me lol =)

what did you do use to remove the EGR valve. With the fluted design, I have had trouble getting a wrench to sit flush on the nut. Please advise. Thanks.

BTW, I have a 2001 Honda Accord LX 2.3L 4-cyl. with 256K I have the code as well. I plan to replace the EGR valve and clean the ports, but just can't figure out how to access the ports and remove the EGR valve.
