Your EGR (Exhaust gas recirculation) is a path from your exhaust to your intake. If it sin't sealed you have no vacuum in the engine. If you found this as helpful, please post as such. More help. Go live

    Is it a new valve. While trying to start it, spray some B12 chemtool at the egr vale keeping some distance should it flash back. If it starts, stop spraying and see how long it runs. If yoy find this helpful, please post as such.TY

How do I correct high idle problem

Year/make/model??? Applying vacuum to the EGR and making the valve open will not be the correction. Once opened, this valve allows unburned exhaust gas back into the combustion chamber resulting in a rich mixture. The computer sees this rich mixture and reduces the injector pulse allowing the idle to slightly lower. If the vehicle were at proper idle speed and this valve is opened, it would run rough snd possibly stall

Rough idle problem

could be a vacuum leak at a hose or gasket. with the engine running spray a little carb spray at the intake manifold area. if the idle picks up you are close to the vacuum leak. dont spray on the exhaust manifold area, be careful

Rough idle 95 astro van, I did a full tune up , plugs,wires,cap, rotor,air filter,and fuel filter and cleaned egr vavle.

I actually had to replace my EGR valve and the gasket. I clean the valve well and reused both. I don't think the gasket sealed well enough though. So I went ahead and got a new valve, gasket and changed them. It runs a lot smoother now.

Code says bad egr valve replaced still throws code

V6? 4cyl? what is the code? there is no code that says "replace egr valve", the passages may be stopped up. open the egr valve manually (a scanner may be able to do thiis) and see if the engine idles rough or stalls out (it should if passages are flowing) if not you need to take valve off and clean the EGR passages. If you cant open the valve, take it off, one hole is exhaust. the other will be vaccuum, from the intake manifold. A bad map sensor could also cause a egr malfunction code.

Have a 401 code have changed all emission parts and cleaned throttle body any solution

Engine size? year? This code is for insufficient egr, usually caused by clogged egr passeges or a bad DPFE sensor. Open egr valve, if the engine idles real rough or stalls, replace the DPFE sensor. If the idle does not change, then take the egr valve off and clean the passages. You cant just keep changing parts hoping you get lucky and change the correct one.

The most common problem is a clogged EGR valve. In any case, you should take it to a mechanic who has the tools to diagnose it further, because 1/2 a dozen things can cause rough idle in a 10 year-old Windstar.
