The most likely cause of your problem is the EGR valve. It is likely that the problem you are having is caused by the EGR valve sticking open causing a lean running condition and misfire. There are other things it could be but this is the most likely cause of your problem.

99 maxima ran till it was parked now it turns over will not start gave code p0400 any ideas


The fault is somewhere around the EGR valve - probably the EGR valve or the throttle position sensor.

Before replacing any sensors try removing and cleaning the EGR.

Here's a Youtube link that may be of help to you:

Failed emmissions codes 0400-0443-0300


P0300 Random Misfire, means any cylinder at anytime.

P0400 Exhaust Gas Recirculation Flow. EGR passages are full of carbon
clean passages and misfires may go away

P0443 Evaporative Emission Purge Control Valve circuit.

now just because a code is present doesn't mean a part/sensor is bad, just where to look and to test.

2005 Chevrolet Equinox These are the codes that show up when we place the Scanner P0068, P0108, P0300, P0405, P0443 Can someone please help me with this? Thanks in advance.


P0108....Manifold Absolute Pressure/Barometric Pressure Circuit High Input


P0300....Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected


P0400....Exhaust Gas Recirculation Flow


P0433....Heated Catalyst Efficiency Below Threshold (Bank 2)

Do not have a listing for the 0068 reading as it doesnt exist in my list ,looking at this i would block off the EGR valve with a nice home made coca cola can gasket and this should cure your problems

I would check out the EGR valve. That maybe what is causing all the misfires.

I have a 1997 suzuki sidekick jx it did not pass smog the data trouble codes are p0300 random multiple cylinder missfire detected, p0400 exhaust gas reciculation flow. how do i fix?


In this case you need to take a look at your EGR Valve and Solenoid. I would check with your local auto parts store to see if they check those for free (some do and others charge a small fee). Most likely you have a bad EGR Valve or EGR Solenoid. Hopefully this gives you some direction. Thanks for using FixYa!

Sincerely,

JC
