SOURCE: I have a 1997 Mercury Villager which has a obd

without having a scanner in front of me(i have one at work and also snap-on shopkey) i work on alot of ford cars and usually the egr is not the problem-the DPFE SENSOR usually is. they are known to go bad on fords and sometimes the replacement part is an "updated" part which fixes the problem.the DPFE is a square or rectangular black plastic piece with one electrical plug and 2 vacuum hoses attached to it.the 2 hoses connect to a metal pipe that will be attached to the exhaust manifold.the DPFE controls the EGR valve.also make sure the 2 hoses are not cracked or disconnected.also check the vacuum hose going to the EGR( if there is one).by the way the 2 rubber hoses connected to the DPFE are NOT normal vacuum hoses.they are special high-heat hoses.

Location of knock sensor on 97 mercury villager


it's in the valley of the engine. Do not ever replace it even if you get a code. A knock sensor will NEVER casue a driveabiity problem. It only retards timing 6 degrees if it senses spark knock. It also sets a code if an engine mount is broken and the engine rocks up and down on acceleration.

I have a 1997 Mercury Villager which has a obd code of P400. I changed the egr valve but the code returns. Could the problem be something different or could the valve be defective.

No heat in 97 mercury villager


your heater core may be getting blocked up, or the thermostat may be stuck open at times. you have a few options here, option 1 and 2 cost about the same, option 1: have the thermostat replaced just so you know its working properly, a 97 will most likely not have a telltale way of knowing if the thermostat is bad or going bad. option 2. have the cooling system flushed at a shop. this will try to clear out and debris in the cooling system that may be blocking passages or the heater core. option 3 is the most expensive. have the heater core replaced, the heater core is what provides heat to the hvac system in the dash. a few other things to check would be vacuum lines/actuator/temperature door on your hvac system.

97 C230 ODB2 P400 code, EGR System where should I start


Check your IAC Idle Air control valve. It is located on the top right back of the motor behind the air intake. You can also remove the EGR valve and check to see that the piston is not gummed up. If it is then replace that. Also look for simple cracks on the boots or hoses sometimes that will cause this to happen. If this helped please rate. Thank you

Code P400


Code P400 is an EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) valve malfunction.

These cars are known for the EGR ports getting clogged.

The valves themselves rarely fail.
