Question about 1996 Acura RL
I am trying to smog the car and it passes no prob on the pipe. I have reset the check engine light after replacing the EGR and clearing the passages but it is still giving me the low flow EGR code. I have checked the vacuum while it was driving and it held true @6-7 lbs to the EGR while cruising. Does this sysytem work differently than most cars? I put vacuum to the EGR while it was running (15 lbs) and it hardly faltered....shouldn't it die?
I have also replaced the T-Stat as it was running a touch cool and thought that might not be letting the PIDS reset but now those are both out of the equation.... please throw me a bone....
You need to pull your plenum and more than likely the intake and clean out the vaccum port in the intake where the egr pipe connects to the back of the intake.Not sure if you can do it with just pulling the plennum or not though.Having the same prob with my 96 rl.Keeps kicking the insufficient flow to egr valve code at about 30 miles.
