Discussion about this Video:
I feel like I should have made this video a while ago but the opportunity
never came up. Since I had this RL in my shop that had a check engine
light AND an ABS light I thought it was a perfect opportunity to put this
video together. I get asked all the time about my 'special tool' and it's
really nothing more than a Honda 2 pin connector with the input wires
soldered together. These connectors might be harder to find than you think
but if you run across a junk honda and one of these is on the harness grab
it. Even if you don't have the tool a paper clip or piece of wire will do
the exact same thing so don't sweat it if you don't have the tool because
shorting the connector is all you need to do.
I hope you find this video helpful.

Honda Civic Rebirth
My 1991 Honda Civic hatchback rebuild. The car was in really bad shape and
desperately needed TLC, so I went ahead and restored her from scratch with
the help of a few buddies who run a shop. The whole process took about 9
months, hence 'The Rebirth' title which seems to go along well like it's a
new born baby.
The motor is B16A with: CTR pistons, full Omni valvetrain, CAT cams, ITR
IM, Mild P&P head, H22A injectors, OBD1 converted, and stock B16A header.
The Exhaust is Apexi WS2. The actual
numbers at the dynapack are pretty embarrassing (I was just trying to get
her to run efficiently for the emissions test, which she passed no
problem). I have no idea what this motor is capable of. I'll post more
vids once she's fully tuned. Props to Nick at Teknotik for the tuning.
*Parts alone for this project costed about $5K to 6K. I did the labor with
the help of my buddies and bodywork was done by an affiliate. So I spent
roughly $10K in total. I plan to keep this car forever so I don't see 10K
as much money at all.
1994 Honda Civic Check Engine Light Code Retrieval Tutorial
The easiest way to retrieve the check engine error code for a Honda Civic
between the years of 1992-1995 (The car in the video is a 1994). With the
use of a paper clip and a close eye on the gauge cluster you will be able
to find out what check engine code your vehicle has, so you can pinpoint
the problem quickly.
Let me know if you have any questions, Thank you for watching!

P0401 EGR Valve Port Cleaning
This is my DIY for clearing the CEL code P0401 (EGR Insufficient Flow) on a
98 Honda Prelude.
In cars with OBD2 if the EGR valve is restricted by carbon deposits it will
detect that and throw a CEL. To get rid of that CEL you must clean out the
carbon to allow flow.
After combustion occurs within the engine it creates Exhaust. Gas from the Exhaust straight from the engine is very bad for
the air. The EGR valve recaptures that Exhaust and runs it through the combustion
process again, which lowers the temperature of the fumes (Exhaust gas) and lowers the amount of pollution
exiting into the atmosphere.
If you don't fix it you won't pass SMOG in California. You may experience
rough idling and poor acceleration.
Get your "EGR port plugs" from Honda. They will have it.
Removing the injectors are important to allow clearance to the port plugs.
When you pull out the injectors you might as well clean them since they are
Slide hammers make pulling the port plugs out easily.
Drill with a bit the size of your tap. Drilling halfway through the port
plug to should be enough distance to fully grab the port with the slide
If after you clean your ports and valve the CEL has not been cleared, you
EGR valve maybe faulty and needs to be replaced.
