Great tip, that is a MUCH better price than the parts store. the hx and accord unit are identical except for the plug position so I'll give it a try if worse comes to worse

I'm not sure if the problem is solved, but I do know for sure know it could only be the valve itself if the light comes back on.

Don't suppose you know what pins on the egr valve I could use to make the valve extend using a 12v power source? That may be a project for the bad valve I suppose

Oh also would "porting" the exit opening on the egr base to be the same size as the opening on the intake manifold improve the air flow?
