I had a service engine light on a nissan altima to come on autozone said it was a dirty erg and also had a po 400 code. what is a po400 code

P0400 is Exhuast Gas Recirculation Flow Malfunction or restriction.This would be carbon build up in the EGR Valve.You can take it off and clean it with a non-chlronated brake cleaner and wire brush or scraper.Other option is to buy a new one.

Have a po405 code on a 02 impala, said its a egr

In Hopes the info BELOW will Help, And Also the Mass Air Flow Sensor is A Totaly Different Sensor (MAF) The EGR Valve Code you are asking About is More Related to the Exhaust Gas that the EGR Valve is Allowing to Flow Past Its Self. I can tell you that From My Own Experience that EGR Valves Get Dirty More than they Fail and Require a Simple Removal and Cleaning of Carbon Buildup. This is after the Procedure Below is Performed.

The powertrain control module (PCM) monitors the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve pintle position input to ensure that the valve responds properly to commands from the PCM and to detect a fault if the pintle position sensor circuit is open or shorted. If the PCM detect an excessively low EGR Position sensor signal voltage, this diagnostic trouble code (DTC) will set.

The system voltage is greater than 10 volts .

  • The EGR Position sensor is less than 0.14 volts at any time.
  • The condition is present for more than 20 seconds .
  • The control module illuminates the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) on the second consecutive ignition cycle in which the diagnostic runs and fails.
  • The control module records the operating conditions at the time the diagnostic fails. The control module stores this information in the Freeze Frame/Failure Records.
  • The PCM disables the EGR valve for the ignition cycle.
