Re: EGR ports ...welded plugs?

They are the same on every h23a1 ive worked on over the years also. Ive only cleaned EGR ports after removing the intake mani off the car/motor, so i cant verify this will work for installed intake mani's; and frankly I dont recommend doing this with the manifold on the car/motor at all. Be forewarned.

I drill out the center of the all the welded EGR ports and go to town cleaning the system with compressed air, pipe cleaners, and carb spray until i stop seeing carbon coming out. This can take a long time.

After its all clean i get an aluminum soda/beer can and cut off squares just a bit bigger than the EGR port holes. Use the can squares to cover the drill holes and create a stable platform for the JB Weld to seal it all back up. I do this one port at a time to make sure it seals and dries perfect. Clean EGR system FTW.

Re: EGR ports ...welded plugs?

thanks dude , But does anyone know why someone used a weld? its a h22a almost rite off the boat 35,000 miles. Would this have been done before it came over or was it done here? Not an easy fix for the next guy! retards..............I hate it when people half ass things

Re: EGR ports ...welded plugs?

It's not people, it's Honda. I'm almost positive all EGR ports came plugged like that from factory.

ENG: Cleaning EGR Valve/Ports video

Or the Honda Service Manual (Which I believe is for an Accord but it's the same.)

Re: EGR ports ...welded plugs?

If I'm not mistake that's how they came from factory. And wat u call stupid is in fact (my opinion) a great way to keep it looking good while still holding the accessibility.
Here's a link to how to clean it courtesy of flipmode303 http://www.preludezone.com/diy-engin...tml#post503790
