Code 404 is a problem with the performance of the EGR valve.
Someone would need to test the operation of the valve and the sensor that watches it. You would need a shop manual for the procedure and basic tools.

You can reset it with a scanner through the diagnostic port or you can disconnect the battery negative cable for 5 minutes or pull the ECM 1 and 2 fuse for 5 minutes.

After a diagnostic check at advance auto parts the codes P0404 and P0513 registered.


The P0513 is a bad immobilizer code, which is part of the security system. Apparently a bad code can cause the engine to run rough, which could be causing the other code. P0404 is an EGR code.

1998 Chevy Truck 1/2 ton 350 engine. Trouble codes P0404, P0405 and P1404. I replaced the EGR valve. Now I get t/c P0404 and P0405. Now what should I check?


404 is exhaust gas recirculation circuit, and 405 is exhaust gas recirculation sensor circuit low. EGR sensor or ground?

Getting DTC code P0404 and P0420. What should I do?


The 420 will not go away with egr replacement. it means the computer has detected a problem with the catalytic converter. eGR valve is at the rear of the engine. Not easy to get to on vans.
