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.

The Basic Parts of an Automatic Transmission (Part 1)
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/
This is part one of my front wheel drive (FWD) automatic transmission
dissection video. In this video I cover the operation of clutches, bands,
accumulators, clutch drums, the oil pump, the valve body, valves, check
balls, seals and 'o' rings, as well as the construction and function of
many of the internal hard parts of an automatic transmission. To be honest
a rear wheel drive transmission isn't much different as many of the basic
components are the same. I guess what I'm saying is that you could use the
information in this video to have a basic understanding of a rear wheel
drive automatic transmission also. It is just a basic overview of the main
components. I don't get into theory and operation so much. Just the
general operation and identification of the parts. I may make more videos
on this topic based on the comments I get so feel free to ask questions and
perhaps I'll answer them in a future video on this topic. There will also
be a separate video on the parts and operation of the torque converter as
well. When that is posted I'll post links below to that video.

10 Min Automatic Transmission Fluid Flush + Replacement (Most Cars)
Ever wanted to do a complete Automatic Transmission Service with a Fluid
Flush and Fluid Change! Well now you can do it in 10 Minutes! This DIY is
super easy really fast and ridiculously cheap. The reason we didn't change
the filter is because the filter on this transmission is internal and you
would have to take apart the transmission to get to it. There is a a
filter for the shift solenoid that can be cleaned to improve shifting.
There is a small black round filter for the transmission, its under the air
box near the solenoid that could be changed if you want to be more

How to Remove Transmission Honda Prelude 92-01
This is a video showing you how to remove a transmission out of a 93 Honda
Prelude Si. The procedure for any Honda using an "H" or "F" series
powertrain w/ hydraulic clutch is the same so this video would help with
those too. This would include all 92 and up preludes, 4 cylinder 90-2002
Accords, and some 97-99 Acura CL's.
Part 1 of 3 covers removing most all the stuff off top (battery, intake,
starter, etc...) and lifting the car.

1997 BB6 Honda Prelude Mugen Twin Loop Exhaust Zoom H1 H22 VTEC
After many tests and hours of driving around at a local track, I've
narrowed down the most decent settings with the Zoom H1 in order to capture
the sound of the Mugen Twin Loop Exhaust. I did the best I could with the tools,
software and my current knowledge. I still think this is a terrible video
but I've been trying so hard to capture the right balance of engine and Exhaust note in one clip that I'm
thinking I require more mics in order to capture the sound one is able to
hear in person within the cabin of the vehicle. So this video will have to
do for now until I master this stuff.
