These engines have a known problem and fix for the EGR port air passage. The air passages in the intake manifold build up a very bad clog, and the fix involves taking off the egr valve, and the intake manifold, drilling out the hole in the manifold, cleaning it, then driving in a bigger new tube, then reassembling everything. This could possibly be your problem. Mne did not originally set a computer code so it took awhile for me to find the problem, waiting until it did set a code. You can google it & can get the kit from Honda or cheaper online.
