Today's task: Clean EGR Ports

Decided to just convert our Lude to an all electric beast, just plug it in!



Ok that's not true, but tying the hood up made this job much easier.



This job wasn't too tough, got a little worried when fuel spilled while removing the fuel pressure regulator and fuel rail....glad I don't smoke, lol.*

I got the plugs drilled, tapped and pulled. I had build up, but not packed solid like others I've seen. My drill bit went through the plug each time, wondering if I knocked most of the gunk back into the ports. Who knows, I got them all cleaned out using seafoam spray, a clothes hanger and a small round bristle brush.



I put it all back together and cranked her up....the white smoke was impressive, lol. Took it down the road, no hesitation but honestly I don't know if much changed driving wise. It still feels like something is slightly holding it back in lower gears at lower RPM when accelerating. I need to drive some more to see if I notice any difference. It was a good experience though, I like getting in there and doing work, especially when it cranks up and runs afterward...lol.

My local Honda dealer had 4 in stock, I needed 6 to do all of the ports. They ordered another pack (comes in packs of 10 is what they told me) on Wednesday and had them in the next day. There are a couple of places online that sell them but if you buy just the plugs you'll pay an additional $12-$15 shipping and handling.....Im way too cheap to do that, lol.

Edit: tell them it's part # 17199-PT3-AHM. When I went the parts guy couldn't find them in their computer. I told him the part number and that it was on a TSB. He said that was why he couldn't find them under a normal parts lookup.

Re: Today's task: Clean EGR Ports

can't find it under a normal parts number because it was an afterthought. They used to just replace the whole IM. They replaced mine at $75,000 miles. 100k mi warranty was the best thing I ever did.

Re: Today's task: Clean EGR Ports

Only other thing that stood out to me is that I was glad to have a shop vac handy. I went and bought this for the job:

2.5 Gallon Wet/Dry Vac-WD2025 at The Home Depot

My bigger shop vac is still at our house in Pensacola, but even if I'd had it it wouldn't have been as easy to use on the ports as this one was. I just set the vac over by the radiator and held the hose with one hand while I drilled with the other. Grabbed all the shavings, worked really well.

Re: Today's task: Clean EGR Ports

I actually plan on removing the IM to do it....its really nasty inside after 150k miles, so I'm going to be cleaning the whole thing, TB, EGR ports, intake and IM, only thing stopping me were those Damn plugs.

It's the same. The guy should be able to pull up the TSB....

Print that and show them if they can't pull it up themselves. You have to wonder about some of these dealership folks sometimes.

Re: Today's task: Clean EGR Ports

Ok, drove the car to work today, drove well, no hesitation at all. However....

I noticed a fuel smell while driving. When I got to work I popped the hood and it smelled very strong, seemed to be on the drivers side around the fuel pressure regulator or maybe on the fuel rail. It was dark so I couldn't see much of anything. I did wipe the fuel pressure regulator with my hand to see if it was wet but it wasn't. I knew this job went too smoothly! lol. I'm going to go out and take another look once the sun comes up.

Edit: Yeah there's a gushing leak around my last injector....curiously on the drivers side end where I had trouble getting the fuel rail to sit down on the injector.....I guess I see why I shouldn't have just tightened that nut down instead of seating it better first. Now to find a co-workers metric socket set to fix it...lol.


Edit 2: The top o-ring was shredded....probably happened when I tightened above said nut without insuring the injectors were already seated in the fuel rail..... Non of the parts stores had an o-ring kit but we matched the o-ring to a stock metric o-ring....I think it was 7mmx2mm.....it seemed close but maybe not exact. I installed it and it stopped the leak. I'll probably get the kit and install the correct o-ring asap. Lesson learned on the injectors. I am now a pro at quickly removing the fuel pressure regulator and fuel rail!
