If the EGR value is dirty,sticking, (or simply gone altogether), would this affect it at low engine temperatures too? Also, the things you are mentioning, are these things a regular mechanic could check into? I feel like the service departments of Honda dealers tend to charge a lot to do anything. When they quoted me $5,000+ for a new hybrid battery (I did much better with Eli in Portland), I got gun shy pretty fast. Juneau is more expensive than down south too. I've made an appointment to take the car in a couple weeks from now, but it would be nice not to have to.
