I have a 1997 civic DX, 1.6 I believe its a non VTEC. Idling funny, but it comes and goes.

Blocked EGR passage.

I live in a small town no repair manuales at any STORE!!!

I need help locating the EGR valve, and help dissasembling it to clean it. any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: 97 civic EGR touble...

its just this piece in the engine bay near the engine. you cant really clean it, i took it off to try but the carbon is really stuck to it. i think you just need a new one.

this is for 01-05 civic but same idea. its on the left of the engine with that weird greenish sticker on top and the big grey connector going to it.
