Question about 2001 Honda Odyssey

Open Question

2000 Honda Odyssey EGR port cleaned but now it won't start

Check engine light won't go away, so replaced EGR valve and cleaned EGR port. When I put everything back and tried to start the engine, the battery sparked - and nothing. The engine never turned over. Now when I turn the key, the panel lights would come on. But when I try to turn over the engine, nothing happens and all lights on instrument panel go out. Did I create a short?

SOURCE: 2000 Honda Accord EGR Valve Error P0401

Jason,
-after you change the part you have to reset/clear the code

-this can be done by either:
(1) using the OBD2 code reader that Autozone used OR since option 2 (below) is very quick
(2) disconnecting the battery for about 30 seconds (this will delete all codes/radio presets/etc) but it will also clear the 'check engine' code
-this is what I do AFTER i write down my radio station presets :)

-hopefully the new EGR valve resolves your issue after you CLEAR the code
...but that code just means a an insufficient amount of Exhaust Gas recirculation (pressure difference) used to keep the emissions in check
-if it comes back, then there are a few other fixes to try also

-let me know if you need further assistance
-please remember to rate me `fix-ya`if it works
thanks

SOURCE: Cleaned out egr intake and

It's the non-OEM EGR valve. I had the same problem, replaced the EGR valve with one bought at O'Reilly's, light came back on. Spent the $ to have the intake cleaned out too, and light came back on driving home from the shop. Mechanic suggested using a Honda EGR part as it has a different port opening as the non-OEM part. Sure enough, light has stayed out since. Took non-OEM EGR valve back to O'Reilly's and **** enought to get a refund on it.

SOURCE: tcs light and engine check light on my 2000 honda odyssey

I had the same code/symptoms a few weeks ago. Dealer did a nice job checking through all the details. Replaced the egr too, but no improvement. Finally found one cylinder not firing correctly (not the same pressure as the other cylinders.) Dealer did a value clean/adjustment, for about $250, and the problem has been gone for about a month now. We are also getting about 15% better mileage.

Hope this helps.

The problem with an aftermarket catalytic convertor is the quality of the material that is in them. Used factory Honda convertors can be sold for 75 dollars. A used aftermarket catalytic convertor will sell for 5 dollars. If u truely want to fix this problem, you need to save up for a new Honda convertor and buy it.

03 honda civic 1.7L p0401 EGR code.


In fixing this code, it is quite common for people to just replace the EGR valve only to have the OBD code return. The EGR valve is not always the culprit. Use a vacuum pump and pull the EGR valve open while monitoring engine RPM's & DPFE voltage. There should be a noticable difference in RPM's with the EGR open Clean out the EGR valve and/or tubing to remove deposits Check the voltage at the DPFE, compare to specified values (refer to a repair manual for your specific model) Replace the DPFE sensor (with a good quality / OEM one)

CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ON.


remove the EGR valve and clean the carbon from the port it is connected to, they are known to get clogged up, you may also have a bad egr valve.

I replaced EGR valve twice one infact today with dealer part but still the check engine light came on after driving my 2000 Honda odyssey van for 25 miles? any suggestions?


I had an egr code. there is a honda service bulletin out about clogged egr ports. The service bulletin involves putting some kind of sleeve in the port. I just followed the service bulletin to clean out the port, I didn't put in the sleeve or any parts. Seems to be working good for the last six months. It took a couple of hours and some gaskets for the intake manifold.
