My check engine light came on my 2000 HOnda Passport yesterday which it has done before & usually I can tighten gas cap & it takes care of it, but this time it did not go away, so I went to Autozone & the guy ran the code which was 402, EGR Flow Excessive. What does this mean & will it hurt to drive my vehicle until I can get it seen about, which may be next week & this is our only vehicle. Thanks.

most likely your pintle valve on your EGR is stuck open.

This is a 15-30 minute DIY job that will only cost you one can of carb cleaner (1-5 bucks).

See the FAQ's for more info.

If you do take it to a place to be cleaned, make sure they clean it, and not replace it. 99% of the time it only needs a good cleaning.
