Honda Accord Engine Light On Sign In

Hi I was wondering if anyone can help. I've got a 1999 Honda accord 1.8s and recently had a new exhaust down pipe fitted also the mechanic did some welding on the middle section but I found out that the battery was still connected. The problem is my engine light has come on and when at temperature the car idles really low and sometimes cut out completely. I naturally tried to use a diagnostic machine but found out this model doesnt have a diagnostic port which isn't very helpful. Some people are saying egr valve, oxygen sensor but the car has passed a emission test so please any ideas or solutions would be helpful.

Of course it has an OBD2 service port if it's a "99 but they didn't make an Accord with a 1.8 in "99 in the US so what do you have?

Did you install any kind of custom exhaust?

I'm not sure how that one is built but on the American version the data link connector is above the left kick panel. If it's not there, we probably won't be able to help you because most everyone here is from the US.
