My 2011 Honda Pilot Touring is hesitating on starting. Before taking it to a mechanic, I was going to clean the EGR valve and replace the gasket. I cannot, for the life of me, find a diagram or video with the location of the EGR valve. Would anyone have a diagram they could upload or instructions on how to locate it?

Black cylinder shape in the red circle is the EGR valve.

Soak the EGR valve’s two nuts overnight with penetrating oil before removal. And have a razor blade on hand to scrape away the old gasket.

Here's a forum popular favorite video on how to go about cleaning your EGR valve (now that you've found it :)).



Whether or not you do like the guy and use your wife's toothbrush is a question only you can answer. :D

I'm working on the @Nail Grease list of items-to-make-a-Pilot-last-forever and the EGR is gonna be next, I think.

Then replace PCV. So just subbing for the links. I might clean the throttle body and intake... When I had the cracked air hose off to replace it and clean the MAF, the flap had a little grime but just a bit on the edge, nothing crazy (especially cause the air hose was cracked so bypassing the air filter a bit). My car runs pretty smooth so hopefully these things will continue to just be maintenance/tune up items.

Also, so weird seeing that's video all icy in Canada during summer in LA hahaha and the dude has the same Mazda key as my other car.
