Check EGR valve to make sure their isn't a piece of carbon stuck under valve seat. Also you need to check exhaust back pressure to make sure you don't have a converter pluged.

What are the symptoms of a bad erg valve and where is it located on a 1999 dodge duranlgo


it is located at the rear of the engine behind the intake, the most common symptom on this is just a rough idle or in most cases a check engine light that stays on, no matter what is wrong with the valve it will set a fault code and turn the check engine light on, so unless the light is on the problem is not the EGR

I replaced EGR valve on my 97 Acura 3.0 CL after


I am fixing to change my EGR valve and the piece of paper that came with the part say this:

Important Notice
Before installing this part, check the EGR valve passage in the intake manifold and clear any carbon blockage. Failure to do so will result in repeat malfuntion of the EGR valve system. Refer to a technical service manual or contact a service dealer for proper cleaning procedures.

Hope this helps.

The check engine light stays on. When I connect the computer it says it is the gas cap or the EGR. I put a new gas cap on. Check engin light stays on. How difficult is it to replace the EGR valve?


its easy too replace but you need too reset your cmputer first too see if the light stays out before you go and buy the egr valve
disconnect the pos side of the battery for 5 min that will reset the computer,if the light comes back on then get the egr valve then you will have too reset it again

Hello, I have had the same problem and turned out to be the EGR valve position sensor. The sensor is part of the car's emissions system and it regulates the position of the EGR valve by sending voltage readings to the computer under the dash. Wrong voltage will give wrong position readings to the computer and the computer will open it too far which causes the car to have a flat spot. You can disconnect the EGR valve to see if that solves the problem before replacing anything. The EGR valve is closed when the engine is cold all of the time if working properly and opens under various conditions when engine warms to reduce NOX emissions.

Service engine code indicates EGR valve.


You could have a restriction in the egr ports. remove the valve. Plug the holes, start engine. 1 hole will be blowing out exhaust, the other will have large vacuum.

I am having trouble getting my check light to go off after I had it checked and the EGR valve was replaced. The light comes back on after about 15 miles of driving and the code reads EGR poor flow. I can...


Insufficient EGR Flow Detected

Possible Causes:
DPFE sensor signal circuit is shorted to ground
DPFE sensor VREF circuit is open between sensor and PCM
DPFE sensor downstream hose off or plugged
DPFE sensor hoses both off, loose or damaged
DPFE sensor hoses connected wrong (reversed)
EGR orifice tube is damaged or restricted
PCM has failed
And what sets the code is…….Engine started, engine running in closed loop under steady cruise conditions, and the PCM detected the DPFE sensor input indicated insufficient EGR gas flow. Run the KOER Self-Test, and if DTC P1408 is present, the fault is currently present. This code sets in 2 Trip(s). The light will stay on until the cause is repaired. A bad EGR valve is only on possible cause.

Hope this helps,

Dave
