ENGINE PINGS

1997 Honda Accord • 4 cylinder FWD Automatic •

1997 Honda Accord mileage: 104,000. I have had trouble with the engine pinging since day one. I have had a rebuilt carburetor put in, the timing checked constantly, the mixture adjusted and nothing helps. It pings a lot under load such as going up a hill or accelerating quickly. I have had a couple different mechanics look at it, but they couldn't find a problem. Any suggestions you can give me are greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

Check the EGR valve to be sure it is opening. One of the functions of the valve is to stop engine pinging at the mid rpm range.
