    I've been having the same problem with my sidekick. I found out that the egr valve is quite expensive to replace, but that the problem isn't detrimental to my vehicle continuing to work properly.

Ransey,

You may need to remove carbon buildup from the passageway throat of where the EGR valve is connected too.

What's your problem?need to reset engine light in my 2006 mercury grand marquis


On a ford that is called a MIL Lamp & they have been on all
vehicles for over 30 years

I wouldn't think there would be anyone left, that has not
experienced dash lights coming on, or has had faults with
those electrical systems ,on some vehicle they have owned

The procedure is always the same

Check for Codes
Diagnose the System that set the light
Component Test items the codes direct you to
Make the proper repair

If you just clear or reset the lamp, then all data a
repair shop will need to solve the faults, will be gone
or it will just come back on

Bad Ignition Coils are common on that engine, but a
bad EGR Valve,Wheel Speed Sensor or other item would
be about due to fail after almost 7 years

I have a 2001 Ford F150 V-8, it started bucking or something when I accelerate around 30 mph. it just started this yesterday and I don't know if this is a transmission problem, a rear brake problem or if...


Disconnect the vacuum hoses to the EGR Valve,plug the hoses removed. Forget the MIL Lamp set on the dash
Drive truck,if problem goes away,replace EGR.

You may along with the egr issue, have ignition misfires,do the egr first,then let me know how it is doing

If your spark plugs are in the motor more than 3 years or 50,000 miles,install new ones .

Well cover cleaning the throttle plate,maf sensor and other things ,after you fix the bucking.

Most likely you have a bad COP (Coil On Plug) .
Maybe more than one. Very common ford problem for last 12 years.
If you get a MIL Light on the dash (the wrench),check for a PO300 Code.
A PO304 would be coil #4,PO306 #6 Etc.
Cyl 1 thru 4 on pass side
Cyl 5 thru 8 on driver side,front to back

Also hills cause a hi engine vacuum and thus a possible EGR Valve going bad. You can unplug the vacuum lines and plug, to diagnose that issue.

Also leave the EGR disconnected if your working on coil issues. Just note the MIL light will stay on all the time,and remember to check your 300 codes if you feel a hesitaton or miss.

I am having trouble getting my check light to go off after I had it checked and the EGR valve was replaced. The light comes back on after about 15 miles of driving and the code reads EGR poor flow. I can...


Insufficient EGR Flow Detected

Possible Causes:
DPFE sensor signal circuit is shorted to ground
DPFE sensor VREF circuit is open between sensor and PCM
DPFE sensor downstream hose off or plugged
DPFE sensor hoses both off, loose or damaged
DPFE sensor hoses connected wrong (reversed)
EGR orifice tube is damaged or restricted
PCM has failed
And what sets the code is…….Engine started, engine running in closed loop under steady cruise conditions, and the PCM detected the DPFE sensor input indicated insufficient EGR gas flow. Run the KOER Self-Test, and if DTC P1408 is present, the fault is currently present. This code sets in 2 Trip(s). The light will stay on until the cause is repaired. A bad EGR valve is only on possible cause.

Hope this helps,

Egr code


REPLACE the EGR valve and gasket, stop being cheap. sometimes there are things that cant be fixed. It could have a micro crack in it or a bad spring. Just brake down and replace it. I have been there so many times. You smack your head into the wall for hours on something that you dance around for months. Let me know once you replace it.
