Hello Everyone! I am very desperate and need help.

I just got a used 95 Accord LX 4-cyl. It was giving me a code 12 so I thought I would replace the EGR valve. I go to replace the valve and between he gasket, and valve and the EGR ports, there is sillycone holding it all together. So I scrape it all off and replace the valve and gasket. Now, it stalls whenever I come off the throttle and it sputters as it dies. Any ideas? The EGR and gasket are the only things I replaced.

Thanks :notworthy

Do an engine relearn procedure and see if your problem is corrected.
As in reset the ECU? I did that and the problem is still there, unfortunately. I disconnected the negative battery terminal for a few minutes, ran the car at idle for 10-15 minutes, and shut the car off. I tried the car again and it still sputtered and died after returning from open throttle.

Did you already clean your IAC valve and its screen, the throttle body, and the EGR ports? At the minimum clean your IAC valve and do a relearn. This is all assuming you already did the other basics of checking the air filter, distributor cap, wires, spark plugs, PVC valve, etc. Is/was your idle up to specs before changing the EGR valve?
