I recommend getting a repair manual from an auto store for your vehicle. They run $15 to $20. It will tell you exactly how to do everything you asked and also give you the values that should be expected. Hope this helps.

On any car 1996 or newer after a repair is made the memory in the computer has to be cleared the light will not go away by itself. The proper way to clear this is with a scanner or code reader but if you dont have any other way unhooking the battery will force the computer to loose all its memory and start all over and the light will go away. If the light returns after a few days you still have a problim.

Ok here is the solution when I had the exact same problem with my 2001 Ford Escape:
Idler air control valve
EGR vaccum sylenoid
I did all of this work myself (and as a girl it was not hard at all), it cost me around $170.00 for all of the parts, had it done in less than 2 hrs., erased the codes and have not had a problem since then! I hope this helps you out, cuz it sure would have helped me out when I encountered the same problem.

just went through this myself. first be sure there are no leaks incap as suggested. second, since computer system pressurizes fuel system as part of emissions, any possible leak, like in filler neck to tank, will trip the check engine. that fixed it for me - last summer. now, new problem showed up again. this time 2 different trouble codes: EGR valve and a pressure sensor. fixed the problem. a week ago, light back on. this time a no $ fix-loose vacumn hose. best advice like the other guys said is to get it scanned and start there.
