As this part may be expensive, you might want to go to this forum and find out how to clean out the valve to prolong its use.

P1404 code


P1404 is EGR valve stuck open. Probably need to replace your electric EGR valve. First, I would remove it and clean the carbon out of it before replacing this expensive part.

How to clean a egr valve from a 2000 mitsubishi montero. I replace the egr valve, but still engine ligth code 403 still on.


Your new EGR valve (assuming it wasn't defective out of the box), is fine, but the car's computer just needs to have its code 403 cleared. Even though you've corrected the problem, the computer will still light the "Check Engine" light, and store code 403 until the code is cleared using an OBD-II (On-Board Diagnostics 2) code scanner.
Note that the car will function perfectly with its new EGR valve, a lit "Check Engine" light and a code 403 stored. Its just a good idea to clear the code, so that then only NEW problems will become the reason that the "Check Engine" light gets lit.

1996 Honda Accord Rough Idle Even After tune up performed Changed spark plugs, distributor cap and rotor wheel along with all spark plug wires, changed fuel filter, air filter, spent $150 on fuel injector...


Perform a valve clearance inspection and adjust if necessary. Tight or sticking valves will cause a misfire or rough running concern. Note: Perform valve adjustment when the engine is stone cold. 4cyl: INT 0.26mm EXH: 0.30mm (V6 engine are hydraulic and no adjust necessary.) Also check for a sticking or stuck open EGR valve. For diagnostic purposes only: Remove the EGR valve. Place a business card over the EGR passage and bolt the EGR valve back on. This plugs the EGR ports and if the misfire goes away the EGR valve is partially stuck open and is defective.
Check for low fuel pressure. Check for low compression. Check cam timing. Check for a weak ignition coil. Also don't over look the possibility of worn or broken engine mounts which cause excessive engine movement and engine vibration. -hope this helps

WHERE IS THE EGR VALVE ON A 1990 OLDSMOBLE CUTLASS SUPREME LOCATED AT


6ff5ad5.jpg About $140.00

The EGR valve is mounted on the intake manifold and has an opening into the exhaust manifold.

The digital EGR valve, used on all 1990 and later EGR-equipped engines (Except the 2.5L and 1994-96 3.8L engine) is designed to control the flow of EGR independent of intake manifold vacuum. The valve controls EGR flow through 3 solenoid-opened orifices, which increase in size, to produce 7 possible combinations. When a solenoid is energized, the armature with attached shaft and swivel pintle, is lifted, opening the orifice.
The digital EGR valve is opened by the ECM, grounding each solenoid circuit individually. The flow of EGR is regulated by the ECM which uses information from the Coolant Temperature Sensor (CTS), Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) and Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) sensor to determine the appropriate rate of flow for a particular engine operating condition.

Digital EGR Valve Testing:

This system must be checked using a Tech 1®or equivalent scan tool. Steps 4, 5 and 6 must be done very quickly, as the ECM will adjust the idle air control valve to compensate for idle speed.
  1. Using a Tech 1®or equivalent scan tool, check for any diagnostic trouble codes and solve those problems first. Refer to the Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) lists later in this section.
  2. Select "EGR CONTROL'' on the scan tool.
  3. Start and run the engine, until it reaches normal operating temperature, then allow the engine to idle for 2 minutes.
  4. Energize EGR SOL #1; engine rpm should drop slightly.
  5. Energize EGR SOL #2; the engine should have a rough idle.
  6. Energize EGR SOL #3; the engine should idle rough or stall.
  7. If all tests were as specified, the system is functioning properly.
  8. If not, check the EGR valve, pipe, adaptor, gaskets, fittings, and all passages for damage, leakage or plugging. If all is OK, replace the EGR valve assembly.

Engine won't idle,


ok code 32 is the EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) this does not mean that the EGR valve is bad right off, check it and see if it is stuck in the open position, remove the vacuum line see if it moves, it should not. It is supposed to open at highway speed to recirculate exhaust gases and burn them, if the valve is stuck open the engine will not idle because it upsets the air mixture too much, if you remove the valve and see its open, then replace it.
