    It comes on every 125 miles? Does it go off? Was it on before you changed the part?

Before you start replacing everything it is definitely worth investing $60 for a code reader to see exactly what the code is. We recently spent a ton of money on our 2000 CRV with persistent check engine. Dealership replaced rotor, cap, wires, plugs etc. Turned out to be burnt exhaust valves. Rebuilt engine was bad enough without all the money we spent for no reason before we found the real problem. At least with the code reader you will know where to start looking.
Good Luck.

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.

Maybe the solution
There is a recall on the ignition switch,

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
