Service engine light comes on with obd code of p1404, p0405. What do i check ?


Code 1404 for Saturn cars means the computer thinks the EGR is not closing. But it can also mean the computer needs to be re-programmed. There are service bulletins for some models.
Code 405 is a problem with the EGR sensor which can be causing the other code.
Generally the sensor is telling the computer the valve is not closed when the computer commands it to be closed.
It may be tough to fix if the problem is not constant.

I have a 2003 chevy impala i changed the egr valve and my check engine light is still coming on and a part store read my code and it said egr valve what else could be the problem


The code in the ECU might not have reset after you changed the EGR. Try unhooking the battery and let the car sit for a couple minutes and then hook it back up and see if the light goes away.

Engine light still on after egr replaced


Disconnect the positive lead to the battery wait about 30 seconds and reconnect. This should clear the error light. Then take it out somewhere where you can floor it and go through the gears a couple times. This will establish a new acceration curve. If the light comes back on it's time to take it to a shop and plugged into a computer to see what's going on.

1997 Oldsmobile Cutlass P0405 EGR Error Code


P0300 Diagnostic Code - Random Misfire
Technical description:--
Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected:---
Exactly what does this code means:--
Basically this means that the the car's computer has detected that not all of the engine's cylinders are firing properly.
A P0300 diagnostic code indicates a random or multiple misfire. If the last digit is a number other than zero, it corresponds to the cylinder number that is misfiring. A P0302 code, for example, would tell you cylinder number two is misfiring. Unfortunately, a P0300 doesn't tell you specifically which cylinder(s) is/are mis-firing, nor why.
Symptoms:--
the engine may be harder to start.the engine may stumble / stumble, and/or hesitate.
other symptoms may also be present…There may be rough idle, sputters and stalls and jerks.
Causes:--
A code P0300 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
Faulty spark plugs or wires, Faulty coil (pack), Faulty oxygen sensor(s)
Faulty fuel injector(s),Burned exhaust valve, Faulty catalytic converter(s)
Stuck/blocked EGR valve / passages, Faulty camshaft position sensor, Defective computer.
Possible solutions for this error problem:--
If there are no symptoms, the simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back.
If there are symptoms such as the engine is stumbling or hesitating, check all wiring and connectors that lead to the cylinders (i.e. spark plugs). Depending on how long the ignition components have been in the vehicle, it may be a good idea to replace them as part of your regular maintenance schedule. I would suggest spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, and rotor (if applicable). Otherwise, check the coils (a.k.a. coil packs). In some cases, the catalytic converter has gone bad. If you smell rotten eggs in the exhaust, your cat converter needs to be replaced. I've also heard in other cases the problems were faulty fuel injectors.
Random misfires that jump around from one cylinder to another (read: P030x codes) also will set a P0300 code. The underlying cause is often a lean fuel condition, which may be due to a vacuum leak in the intake manifold or un-metered air getting past the airflow sensor, or an EGR valve that is stuck open.
Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

I HAVE A 1998 FORD TAURUS CHECK ENGINE LIGHT IS ON. HAD IT READ AT AUTO ZONE, SAID IT WAS AN EGR VALVE. I REPLACE THIS ABOUT 14 MONTHS AGO.


The EGR is one piece in a larger system. Most autozone type places only read the code and match it with a code sheet. This does not troubleshoot the entire system. It is possible the new egr valve you repaired actually is broken. But check the Vaccuum lines and hose around the valve, if broken or loose or even missing, this would cause the same problem. Find a friend or aquaintance with a snap-on style computer to pull up the exact data you need.
