Default Question for an Acura Technician

I have an '00 Acura 3.2TL diagnosed by Acura as bad EGR valve. They
cleaned the ports for $212 and wanted another $349 to install a new EGR
valve. That's more than I can afford right now. These are cheaper on eBay!

So, will a '00 Honda EGR valve from an Accord or Oddessy work on my car?
The look the same. But are they?

Thanks,

James

Try an auto parts website (like Advance --> partsamerica.com) look up the
part for both cars and see if you get the same part numbers.

Thanks Art! I checked this out and found that the part numbers are the
same for the Honda Accord of the same year.

What I find interesting is that there are people out there that sell
these things on eBay that get roughly $50 more for the same part...Just
because it has the name Acura associated with it. It's a 'buyer beware'
world out there! ;o)

Thanks again!
