For soaking, im thinking non-flammable is better, but I guess I can let it dry a long time.

Techron idea is interesting. I know i can get a bunch of that..

why not just use google to get the manual there is also a service manual near the bottom of the search

honda google manual search


It's amazing how so many electrons are wasted talking about a problem and how so few are used to simply look up the manual. [emoticon]

Last sentence pretty much sums up the problem with a lot of people.

Not everyone realizes that manuals can be found on the net. [emoticon]

Its $135 for a new one.

Mine is completely blocked. If you blow on it, nothing goes through.


Any ideas?

What is the internal structure of these things?
Is it just a cavity or is there like a zig-zag path?


$135? Really? Where are you getting that price for a replacement spark arrester? I just did a google search and found them for around $20-ish.

Under $17 bucks Original Honda Part

You might mosey over to YouTube and in the search box enter how to clean your Honda Eu2000i spark arrester. Seems to be some good videos there.

Its the whole muffler.
Muffler clogged, not the arrestor screen.

Have you tried compressed air, maybe while tapping the muffler on a hard surface?

There's also AC Delco upper engine cleaner which is used to dissolve carbon build up in the combustion chamber. If whatever is blocking your muffler is carbon-like, that may work.

Yes. Probably carbon or murder hornet nests ... maybe (hope not) a mouse nest.
Im rooting for carbon.

I looked up muffler construction. Some are just metal chambers, but some also have fiberglass packing.

I also think auto shops get parts dip cleaned on a regular basis

Original Poster:
I tried brake cleaner.. not so effective
Carb cleaner.. better than brake cleaner it seemed.

This carbon seems resistant to cleaning.

Then I fired up my grill and tossed in the muffler. Turned it over a few times. I think the hotter you get, the more carbon gets burned off. Dont think my grill was extremely hot. When i was done, i tapped the muffler all over.

Also picked up some rubber corks at the hardware store. This so i could fill the muffler with carb cleaner. But also you can drill a little hole through the cork and put the little red straw through it. Then you can blow canned air through it if you don’t have a compressor available.

The cork/can thing also allowed me to bust through the initial full blockage.

Muffler pretty clean now.

If still plugged let it dry really well and then run it through a cycle of a self cleaning oven. It might burn it off.
