SOURCE: Difficulty to replace EGR valve in 1999 totyota camry 4-cyl automatic

If you have small hands it can be easy. The space between firewall and EGR is tight but it wasn't too difficult to remove. The vacuum hose at the bottom was hard to pull off and I ended up cracking it and had to splice it. It was more difficult to re-install the EGR then remove it. I had a difficult time with keeping the gasket aligned while bolting it in to the lower tube. I took a few attempts. I suggest when replacing the EGR leave the mounting bolts loose so you can more easily align the metal tube. I would tighten the metal tube at the bottom of EGR first then tighten the upper two mounting bolts on top. It took me about 5 minutes to remove and 15 minutes to replace. I would be sure to clean the IAC too after cleaning the EGR. I sprayed throttle bottle cleaner down the bottom hole located on the throttle body and let soak about 15 minutes then start and run the engine a minute and repeat the process. This helped smooth the idle while stopped at a light. It also stopped the idle from shaking and almost stalling the car out at a traffic stop when the engine was warm.

SOURCE: How to replace EGR valve on 2000 camry V6?

If you have a P0401 code from a CEL, the first thing is to check the EGR vacuum modulator. It is a little well usually next to the EGR. Pop the cap off and dust the little sponge inside. Sometimes this gets stuffed up with carbon particles and causes recirculation problems. You should clean the tubes hooked to it while you are there. Reset the code and see if the light comes back.

Replacing the EGR is not a tidy job. It is an expensive part to replace and you will disconnect the three hoses and dismantle it from engine by two nuts. Save it for the later if the previous trick fails to work.

SOURCE: Where do I hook up the lower metal tube on the egr

You connect it to the metal-tube under the EGR vacuum modulator. Vacuum modulator is behind the throttle-body manifold, and it is black. small-can like appearance.

Our 97 camry check enginlight is on shop says code is for the erg valve, it does not look that hard to change should i just change the valve with the hoses or the whole unit?


Try to change the egr valve, the part with the hose connected to it. That's, of course, that if the egr solenoid is working correctly. Be sure to clean the carbon out of the recess hole that the egr valve pintle goes into.

Good luck on this repair.

1996 toyota camery code po401


Clean the EGR air passage tube.

Carbon built up is worst inside this air passage tube.

You will need Seafoam or WD-40 and LOT OF TIME to clean out this tube.

A vacuum will help speed up the cleaning.


Please post more information on the comment window.

94 camry engine light on, code 71, how do i fix it


Go to Autozone and have your current EGR Valve, removed from the car, tested and they will determine if it is defective. They tested 2 for me, and neither was a replace, just a clean and they worked great. If they don't have a brand that suits your wants, just test it, then buy the new somewhere else, no commitment to buy.
The most common problem with these EGR valves is they get plugged up from carbon build up. Best way to test it is with a little hand held vacuum pump. Hook it up to the EGR valve and with the engine running at idle and squeeze the vacc pump handle a couple times to open the EGR valve. That should kill the engine. If it dosent, the EGR valve is probably plugged up. At that point you'll have to take it off and clean the carbon out. Even if you have your mechanic check into it, it shouldnt be that expensive to remove it and clean it out or replace it.

Good Luck and hope this helps: Oh and I think theres two EGR.. check the one on the bottom of the engine to. I am not sure but i think there are two EGR valves on your camery.

Buy a gasket and take the old valve off, clean the gunk out of it with carb cleaner, put it back on with the new gasket and you just spent $10. If the code pops again, buy a new EGR valve, $160 at Advance Auto. Then, report the shop who quoted you $795 to the BBB.

Difficulty to replace EGR valve in 1999 totyota camry 4-cyl automatic


Not difficult at all to service the EGR Valve using a #12 mm socket wrench it is a five minutes job. However the VSV is another history and very difficult to be reached unless you have an elevator After the engine begin stalling I double checked the EGR which was completely carbonized. I cleaned it and also replaced IAC checked VSV and all sensors, but the engine follows stalling. Now I am looking for the Charcoal Canister which I simply can't find where it is located, then I will check the vacuum lines and the transmission sensors, but I have heard that EGR despite cleaned can keep bringing troubles. By the way, anyone has ever heard where in the car is installed the charcoal canister
