Might want to look for vacuum leaks. Most misfires that go away with gas are caused by manifold vacuum leaks. The cat code can also be caused by the vac leak. There are different methods to find them and not real easy-but one way is to get a can of carb cleaner spray and spritz around intake areas. When the carb cleaner finds the leak--the car will run good for just and instant. Could be a rubber line or a manifold gasket. Hope it helped. Thanks

SOURCE: EGR Valve needs cleaning or replacing

The link below is a diagram of the EGR valve. Looks like a mushroom with vacuum lines attached.


  • Label and disconnect the hoses from the valve. Carefully loosen and remove the retaining bolts, remembering that they are probably heat-seized and rusty. Use penetrating oil freely.
  • Remove the valve and clean the gasket remains from both mating surfaces.
  • Inspect the valve for any sign of carbon deposits or other cause of binding or sticking. The valve must close and seal properly; the pintle area may be cleaned with solvent to remove soot and carbon.

  • I hope this answers your question. Best of luck.

    SOURCE: were is the location of mitsubishi mirage 2001

    im not sure if this model is service able for a non mechanic. but the tranny filter is located behind the tranny pan of the transmission. you will need to drain all of the transmission fluid before you take the pan off. the filter in itself is very easy to get off. it may get a little frustrating getting all of the bolts off the tranny pan. should be any where from 15 to 20 of them depending on the model. once you get the pan off, look at the new filter and judge by that on how to remove the old filter. after you get the old filter off repeat the steps of removel in the opposite order. now most tranny filters will come with a new tranny pan gasket. if it doesn't i strongly recommend buying a new one. they should not run you more than 10 to 20 bucks at any local parts store. it also would not hurt to line either side of the gasket with permtex ( i would go for the high heat red tube) line the bolt holes up and bolt the tranny pan back to the transmission. be sure not to over tighten the bolts. the tranny is only aluminum. after you have everything back together look in your owners manual to see the specific type of tranny fluid you will need and the exact amount you will need. once that is done you should be good to go

    SOURCE: how to install egr valve on 2000 mitsubishi mirage

    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    2. Remove the air cleaner and intake hoses as required.
    3. If necessary, detach the EGR temperature sensor connector.
    4. Tag and disconnect the vacuum hose from the EGR valve.
    5. Remove the mounting bolts and the EGR valve from the engine.
    6. Clean the mating surfaces on the valve and the engine. Make sure to remove all gasket material.
    7. Inspect the valve for a sticking plunger, caused by excess carbon deposits. If such a condition exists, clean with appropriate solvent so valve seats correctly.
    To install:
    1. Install EGR valve with a new gasket in place.
    2. Install the mounting bolts and tighten as follows:
    3. 1.5L, 1.6L, and 1.8L engines—7–10 ft. lbs. (10—15 Nm)
    4. 2.0L engines—10–15 ft. lbs. (15—22 Nm)
    5. 2.4L and 3.5L engines—16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm)
    6. 3.0L engines—8 ft. lbs. (11 Nm)
    7. Connect the vacuum hose to the EGR valve.
    8. If detached, attach the EGR temperature sensor.
    9. Install the air cleaner and air intake hoses as required.
    10. Connect the negative battery cable.
    The EGR valve is retained to the intake manifold with two bolts.

    I need to find EGR on my 1999 galant

    All EGR Valves have an exhaust tube going to them

    The output is close to the intake manifold & puts
    the exhaust into it.

    Should not be hard to see, if you know what one looks like

    Why are you finding it?

    Don't throw parts at it, because someone said to

    Have the valve tested,it has to fail or you don't replace it

    How much to fix the P0401 egr problem in a 2001 mitsubishi mirage LS with over 100k miles on it?

    A code P0401 most likely means one or more of the following has happened:
    - The DPFE (differential pressure feedback EGR) sensor is faulty and needs to be replaced
    - There is a blockage in the EGR (tube), most likely carbon buildup
    - The EGR valve is faulty
    - The EGR valve may not be opening due to a lack of vaccuum

    Possible Solutions: In fixing this code, it is quite common for people to just replace the EGR valve only to have the OBD code return. The EGR valve is not always the culprit.
    - Use a vacuum pump and pull the EGR valve open while monitoring engine RPM's & DPFE voltage. There should be a noticable difference in RPM's with the EGR open
    - Clean out the EGR valve and/or tubing to remove deposits
    - Check the voltage at the DPFE, compare to specified values (refer to a repair manual for your specific model)
    - Replace the DPFE sensor (with a good quality / OEM one)
    - Replace the EGR valve

    Keep us updated.

    How many different problems can the p0401 code be on a 2001 mitsubishi mirage 1.8 litre

    In short,it's all cause by carbon built up.

    EGR valve can fail after 100,000 miles.

    Check for

    vacuum leaks on intake manifold,

    the air tube between the air filter.

    intake manifold vacuum hose.

    clean throttle plate with Berryman carburator cleaner

    SEE sample picture HERE

    Also remove carbon built up behind the EGR valve and the EGR passage tube.


    Vacuum leak WILL offset the intended 14.7 to 1 air fuel ratio.

    More un-metered air (leaks) will lean out the fuel mixture.

    Use small amount of Berryman carb clearer at potential air leak area will help you identify trouble spot.

    At idle,just spray and listen for the RPM surge.

    The in-rush of carb clearer will increase the RPM on the motor.

    Record the problem spot(s) and address it later.


    EGR carbon built up require 2+ hours to clean from start to finish.

    You will need a new EGR base gasket before your start.

    Locate and remove the EGR valve after the vehicle is cool down.

    Carefully record the connector and vacuum line (for older vehicle) location by drawing an easily to follow diagram.

    Remove the EGR valve.

    Inspect the location of the carbon built-up inside the valve and the EGR passage tube.

    SOAK these areas with WD-40 spary.

    You will need a small screwdriver,cloth hanger and lot of newspaper and time to get this cleaning done right.

    RE-SOAK the carbon and let it sit for over-night will also help.

    One the last round,pass a shop vacuum of the EGR valve and the passage pipe.

    Install the new EGR gasket and connectors.

    Allow the vehicle to warm up outdoor to burn up any remaining WD-40.

    Take it for a test drive.

    Car stalls when coming to a slow dow or stoping

    If your check engine is not on, check for a vacuum leak by listening for hissing; check your pcv valve (replace it for 3 dollars if you don"t know how to check); check egr valve for clogging and proper function.
