EGR cleanup


Recommended Posts



I have a 98 accord


My mechanic says I have a lot of carbon in the EGR pipe. It may take a few hundred to clean it up and possibly would need replacement


My question to you folks is if this is really necessary. I don't get terrible mileage (about 24 highway) and don't want to spend few hundred on a car that's only valued at a few thousand now (160k miles on it). If you think this will improve my mileage by 3-5 mpg, I may do it. If I don't fix it, can this bite me bad in the long run?
