It can be reached from the top of the engine. its just a real pain to do. two 10mm hold it to the drivers side head.

04 dodge ram pickup has code po 456 what is this code? 04 dodge ram 1500 5.7 engine gas mileage has gotten worse.

Small leak in evaporative emissions system. Basically takes fuel vapors and recirculates them back to engine to be burned rather than vented into the atmosphere.One common cause of light on dash is faulty/dirty gas cap seal. Did you add fuel just before light came on? Otherwise a small leak at a hose etc., in system, as well as faulty purge system may also cause it.

I am getting a light with code P1404 EGR on Ram

If you have an exhaust leak this can cause false emission readings. On a vehicle as old as your's I would bet on changing the EGR valve if you don't have an exhaust leak.
As to having your computer re-flashed, I far as I know that's for if your not properly registering a new EGR valve.

My 2006 dodge ram 1500's check engine light just came on, is there a sequence i can run to get it to give me a code?? i know with other cars, there is. but never had any issues with my 06

The only way to get the codes on a 2006 is with an OBD-2 scanner. Most of the larger auto parts stores will run the scan for you for free.

Diagnostic code 1404

Trouble code P1404 means: EGR Close Position Performance
basically pull off the EGR and try to clean it up, if that doesn't work it will need to be replaced.
Hope that helps!

Whats the code p1404 mean in my 2006 dodge ram

Hi,this is an errror code that indicates Exhaust gas recirculation ( EGR) valve---- closed position performance.
In other words, the pintle or valve inside is stuck in the closed position and not recirculating the exhaust gases.
You can either take it off and try to free up the valve, or replace it with a new one. Have it checked first, it could also be the EGR valve solenoid causing it not to open,

take care

2006 Ram Hemi 1500 P1404 Code

P1404 is the EGR Pintle Position (system) and the fault
description is "Circuit Fault".
in reality, the best thing is to take the whole intake off and do a good house cleaning,since all the passage ways(i.e. vacuum routes, etc.)gets plugged.
the pintle gets stuck by all the **** inside the manifold, usually having the engine running too rich.
the original culprit is(most of the time) the faulty engine coolant temp sensor.
with that going bad, is usually downhill for performance and everything wise
now.i think I've exhausted the subject for all the peps...lmao..
