1992 Honda Accord will not pass emissions inspection

Could this be the EGR valve. The 02 sensor was replaced last year.

The EGR will not cause this issue, this sounds like the Catalytic Converter was not hot enough, another trick that worked for this kind of fail was a fresh oil change, make sure the engine is up to normal operating temp, which would be just short of 1/2 scale on the temp guage, if it runs cold replace the thermostat, I did smog tests for 30 years and these are the things I did to get cars like yours to pass given the test results you gave for the tailpipe.

Jose, I don't know if this will give you the answer you are looking for because there are many things to consider here. The exhaust gas recirculation valve (EGR) is one of the main things involved in reducing NO emissions. This valve is controled by the power control module. (PCM) This is your vehicles computer. The PCM monitors the vehicles speed and will command the EGR to open when the vehicle attains a certain speed, which is why the ASM test being done is recorded at two different speeds. At 25 MPH your vehicle failed the hydrocarbon (HC) emissions limit and this could be for a number of reasons. When is the last time you car was tuned up? Old spark plugs, wires, clogged air filters, oxygen sensors, leaking injectors (personal experience) or the PCV valve could be contributing to the results of the test. I guess that the easiest way to go is to tune up the engine replacing the spark plugs, wires, air filter and the PCV valve and don't forget to have the oil changed at the same time. Only then should have the vehicle retested and see what the results are. Should it fail again you may have to consider having the EGR or the catalytic converter replaced depending on what portion of the test fails. If the NO fails I would consider the EGR. If the HC fails then I would consider the catalytic converter. Good luck with this.
