    Engine shuts off without warning, sometimes on the highway, losing all power to steering and brakes. Starts again with no trouble. This has happened twice recently. 2000 Grand Caravan has 225,000 kms. on it. I too will need to know where the EGR valve is located also the Fuel Pump and Fuel Filter. Thank you

Sometimes the intake manifold gets carbon in it from a bad egr valve. You may need to pull the EGR and see if you cant clean it a little.

Every time my car comes to a red light it powers off.why?


EGR (exhaust gas recirculation),or TPS (throttle position sensor) When the vehicle makes a stop and go into idle. The RPM is basically too low to maintain the RPM, If the vehicle runs 800 RPM in park or neutral and doesnt stall the setting is correct. If it stall in neutral or park and has a hard time accelerating you will need a TPS, The EGR can stall a engine if it stays open underload approching a stop where it doesnt close properly

1993 LeSabre- just started running rough mostly when put in reverse or drive. Not so much in park or neutral but a little, maybe cause of higher idle speed in park. Also runs a bit rough at slow speeds....


Sounds like the Torque Converter Lock-up Solenoid is failing. It will cause the car to run rough at slow speeds, and sometimes stall while idling in gear (at a stop sign for example)
To test this, locate the 2 or 3 wire connector on the left side of the transmission (looking at it from the left side of the car, it can be hard to find some times) Disconnect it. If the car runs and drives ok with it unplugged, the Lock Up Solenoid has gone bad. The solenoid itself is inside the valve body, inside the transmission (above the transmission pan)

Go out in AM, car is cold, starts and runs fine. Drive short distance, stop and restart, runs fine, idles fine. Drive about 8 miles at 50-55 mph, pull up at a red light, when speed gets down to ~25-30...


The EGR valve is unserviceable which causes a bad or insufficient fuel control for em-missions......Hope this helps you out........EGR valves are not very expensive.

Engine light came on in my dodge caravan sxt 3.3L 6cyl. Code P0404. It seems to be running fine, how do I check the EGR valve myself? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.


To check the egr yourself you will need a hand held vacuum pump. To perform the test start the van and let it warm-up, then remove the top vacuum hose from egr valve and attach hand vacuum pump to egr valve. Apply about 5 in-hg vacuum to the egr valve. With the engine at idle speed and vacuum applyed the engine idle speed will drop or stall. If not then the egr valve is faulty and will need to be replaced. If the engine didi change idle speed and or stalled the egr valve is good. Hope this will help you.

Alfa 156 sometimes stalls when I slow down.


It's the air measuring tube that will be clogged probabily.
In the air intake, you'll find an air measuring valve ( older models ) or a hot wire system ( newer models ).
See if the valve can move smoothly, and/or if the measuring wire is totally clean! CAUTION, those parts are very fragile!

The idle regulation valve can also be faulty or clogged ( or its tubing ). This specially on older engines were some oil is consumed...
