  1. Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion

  2. Problems and Troubleshooting
    Hi guys, I've read a ton on this forum about the herky jerky problem. Mine occurs under light load (maybe 75 MPG or so on the instant) and seems (luckily) to only occur at low speeds, maybe 35-55. On the highway there is very little herky jerky except sometimes it feels like I have no power...
  3. Buy/Sell Insight-Related Items
    I would like to possibly get a new or used EGR valve for 1st gen Insight. Going to try cleaning mine first. If that doesn't work, I'll need to buy another one. I'd rather not spend the $165 for the new one, so I thought I'd post here first... Thanks, Dan
  4. Modifications and Technical Issues
    So, I've been re-devouring all the EGR Valve threads and read with great interest the info on possible alternatives to our way-too-expensive replacement. I just have one concern, and that is with the shape of the "mouth" port on the bottom of the valve. Ours is a rectangular looking hole, and...
  5. Problems and Troubleshooting
    01 Insight MT w/119K on it. Started bucking at low throttle. Was fine when cold but almost undrivable after about 10 minutes. Had thrown codes for cat (420) and running too rich (172). Independent shop first tried valve adjustment. Exhaust valve were too tight but made no difference in...
  6. Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    Greetings. I have a 2000 MT with 100K miles. I've had it for 6 months, bought from original owner that always had it serviced at dealership. It has a new Honda battery. It stutters on the freeway. It used to jerk around and so I replaced the EGR valve. I put in the correct plugs. I've run...
  7. Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    Can anyone recommend a place to service my first-gen. Insight on Long Island? I'm hoping for farther East. And I'm worried it might be an EGR valve cleaning and/or replacement. Thanks.
  8. Problems and Troubleshooting
    I've got a 2000 Insight with 123,0000 miles on it. Check Engine light came on about a week ago, accompanied by losing mpg (from 60 and change to under 55 - though some of this is due to MN change to fuel blend from summer to winter). Also felt misfires - mostly at 30 mph. Took the car in to...
  9. Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    After reading quite a few threads on clogged EGR Plates my Uncle and I decided to clean our EGR plates on our Insights this past weekend. I pre-ordered the needed gaskets and had them on hand. My blue 01 has 50K on it and his silver 05 has 76K on it. Neither of us were experiencing any...
