Can anyone link me where to find a Egr Valve. Ive looked everywhere and the ones i find have a a few wires running to the top. Mine only has a metal tip for the vacuum line. I really need this part. My prelude is in great condition and only has 89xxx original miles. I dont want this car to end up getting junked due to a damn egr valve. Please help this means alot to me. I can post pics upon request

This image is for an Accord. Every Prelude EGR valve on every parts site has the wires you describe. Does it look like this?

...it is just like LOVE, you put it out there...and put it out there...and perhaps you may get a little reciprocation, but acknowledgement should be a conditional to any level of meaningful interaction....else it's who knows, who cares, why bother, time. not my style man.

Try rockauto.com. is it possible the engine in your car was changed? Owing to the different part listing than what you have? HTH. -Jim

our pal Wayne still hasn't chimed in with his report...kinda disconcerting~

The second picture looks to me like an EFE (Early Fuel Evaporation) valve. Does it mount near the exhaust manifold? If so, that's what it is. Old timers will call it a heat riser. It's job is to direct hot exhaust gases around the carburetor or throttle body (fuel injection) to prevent ice build up on the throttle plates in cool, damp weather. If it mounts on the side of the carburetor (if not fuel injected) it's your choke pull off. On a carburetor when the engine is cold the choke plate will be completely closed until the engine starts. Once started vacuum is applied to the choke pull off to slightly open the choke so the engine will run. As the

engine warms up the choke plate opens & the pull off isn't needed until the next cold start. The other pictures are definitely an EGR valve. HTH. -Jim

Do you have the DOHC or SOHC engine? If not sure what's the eighth character of your VIN? -Jim

Go to rock auto.com. Look at the EGR valve for a 1984 Prelude with the 1.8. Also, I looked this up at my job(NAPA) we show one with a vacuum hose and electric connection. Have to go back to '84 for just the vacuum hose. No listing for the SOHC engine at NAPA or rock auto though. HTH. -Jim

Looks like the one rockauto.com shows for an '84 model with the 1.8L. Check it out. Hope that's it! - Jim
