Ok the most common issue is a sticking Egr valve which is covered under your emissions warranty or a transmission torque converter locking up . These need to be checked next. They can be easily diagnosed with the Honda HDS scanner hooked up. These are the next steps .Hoped this helped. Positive feedback and bonuses greatly appreciated.

That tells me how to throw money at the problem by using a dealer or repair shop's computer tools.. How do I diagnose the EGR to begin with?
Expert:  HondaPlatinum replied 5 years ago.
You have a meter and scanner ? If not disconnect the connector at the Egr valve and see if the problem goes away if so the valve is bad .
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
So I can drive highway speeds in cruise control with the EGR disconnected? Or can I apply vacuum at the valve while it's parked?
Expert:  HondaPlatinum replied 5 years ago.
You can drive with it disconnected.

And whereabouts is the EGR on this car located? Do you want me to disconnect a wire harness connector or a vacuum line?
