Hi,

I stumbled across this informative forum whilst trying to resolve the following problem with my 06 Honda civic 2.2 diesel:

When driving along normally the car will start to hesitate when applying the throttle & then shortly afterwards will lose power. The revs will not rise even with you foot firmly flat & then when the car comes to a standstill the car will shake really badly before cutting out completely & stalling, afterwich the car refuses to start. After you give it 30 minutes or so the car starts up perfectly & drives like there is nothing wrong until the next time the hesistation occurs. There have also been times when the car will idle roughly at under 1000 revs but not switch off & when the throttle is applied nothing happens.

This seems to occur ramdomly as we have managed several 30 mile journeys with no issues apart from the odd slight wobble but then a short trip round the corner & it hesitates & stalls.

Most of the times it has happened we have either being going uphill or down hill & its been at night so i dont know if that has anything to do with it.

Also when diagnosed there were no codes apart from P2004 so we changed the associated part (inlet manifold runner control) but the problem still happens. Also cleaned out the EGR valve & although the car runs & sounds better the loss of power & stalling still happens.

Any pointers to what it might be would be greatly appreciated as with two kids & a job some milage away, we are really dependent on our car.

Thanks,
Mo

Mo, your EGR valve is goosed. We can offer an EGR Delete as part of a remap, have a look in this forum and typeaccord.co.uk for plenty of feedback and get in touch if interested.

By the way you cannot clean the EGR valves in these cars, they are totally sealed. All you've cleaned is the inlet port.

From what you're saying already and from those symptoms, if not the fuel filter then almost definitely the EGR valve. P2004 relates to the IMRC which is the actuator for the EGR valve. Are you doing a lot of short start stop journeys?

Fuel filter was changed in the last service & generally our journeys are 25-30 mile dual carriageway journeys which can involve getting stuck in traffic more often than not. I would say that short stop/start journeys are not the norm.

Just took it for a quick drive now & it was perfect more or less so it's somewhat confusing!
