Hmmmm....exhaust gas recirculation valve.....I've not encountered any
problems with mine yet. You have none at all, (so they say)? I've asked a
little about them & I've been told they're $200-$300 to fix/replace. Wish I
could help you. Here's a few linx I've come across on Google........
(these are just some on "egr"---)
http://www.misterfixit.com/egrvalve.htm
http://autorepair.about.com/cs/gener.../bldef_165.htm
try a Google with "egr 1990 INTEGRA LS"
I'm sure you'll get other replies soon with more info. for ya.
Good luck.

I don't own an Acura and never have, I have a '95 GM 2.3L Quad. BUT,
I've learned that my engine for example, didn't require one because of
cam specs.
The EGR is to reduce combustion temp to reduce I believe Nox emissions.
It's not uncommon for four cylinders to not require them.

How knowledgable is this "emissions place" with your car and engine?

I'm guessing your engine didn't require one because combustion temps
were low enough under all conditions to keep emissions low.

Hope this helps.

Tony

HEY!, JOHNNYR!! TURN OFF YOUR CAPS LOCK!
Although it may seem strange, using all upper case is viewed
as akin to shouting, and most folks prefer you'd not do it.
Some folks even refuse to read messages sent in all caps mode,
treating them sort of like Nigerian Scan emails.

Good luck on your problem.
