    Well I finally figgured out I've got low EGR flow on my 99 Accord V6 with
    101000 miles. How can I clean the EGR passages and intake passages?

    Has the EGR been upgraded ? If not, send it back to dealer, free of charge.

    that bulletin only extended to 80,000 miles. pull the intake off
    and flip it upside down. the egr port is between the throttle body and
    the intake ports. clean out the hole.
    unless you did all your service work with the same dealer, they
    won't goodwill this problem.

    I am getting a CEL throwing code P0401 "EGR Insufficient Flow" on my 2001
    Accord V6 with 43,000 miles.
    THe shop manual doesnt show how to clear those passages out. Does anyone
    have any further info??

    This should be covered under an extended warranty for 8 years or 80,000
    miles, take it to the dealer. TSB # 99-085. They fixed my 99 V6 Accord with
    53,000 miles on it for free.
