I will need a week with it, but so far I have found the Autozone "lifetime warranty" Accord valve works and hasn't thrown a code in my test drives today. This should only affect codes and general smoothness at cruise. I was still able to go 75-80mpg averaging 60 with a non-functional EGR valve.
Our Insight started some bucking again, while getting good economy....was going to drill the hole inject the contact cleaner versus open it up and shorten the shaft by 5 mm so the backward contacts would hit new carbon....
But, then I read this! Called my favorite Advanced Auto store and they have the 99 Honda accord 4 cylinder EGR in stock. Will install tonight and save the original Insight EGR....to play with
Thanks Jeff for this post. Will see how many miles this 99 Accord EGR valve goes before it malfunctions....maybe never!
