Question about 2001 Honda Passport
I need this to pass emisions in about thirty days. I have already changed the EGR vale but the check engine light is on and the next step is the intake. Need to take it apart and clean the carbon build up off to make the air flow free again
Just wanted to make sure we were on same page with thiis. They (honda) actually has a service update for this,(and several other vehicles,both honda and acura side).Have you called local dealership to see if they repair under emissions extension warranty?After working for Honda for so lon i can probably tell you that even though its at end of warranty limit if you scream loud enough they "will" cover it for you. Its been a big problem (intake ports clogging shut with carbon sludge.)just be firm,point out you understand its a huge common problem! I'll dig up the service bulletin for you just in case which goes through the repair step by step.Theres not alot to it actually,its a matter of disconnecting cables from throttle body(or take it loose from intale and lay aside,a few connectors,intake bolts,then once off just flip over and the port is very obvious. about 3/4 inch port and will plugged solid,you will have to drill through buildup to remove(itssolid!)and clean with lots of carb cleaner!port on engine is usually fine.Nnow part of update is a sleeve that drives into port once drilled out(prevents carbon from sticlking to sides of port.you can buy from honda, i reccomend it if you do this yourself.i'll be back in touch w/info. do try and get Honda to cover that way it dosnt cost you.&if they do agree to do,they will have to reimburse you for $ spent on egr stuff youve bought
