I have a 98 neon that needs o2 sensor and egr valve fixed. Ive been quoted 340 repair bills for the work. Is that reasonable, or better to put 700 down start payments on a new car?


Carlos, Can you do any work your self new EGR valve $50.00, new O2 sensor $50.0 or less ordered through Rock auto.com, if car overall in good shape may be worth fixing. Especially if finances are tight. get a second even third estimate and this time ask them if you supply new parts O2 and EGR how much they want for labor, should not be more then 1.5 hours. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Fuel cal-pak incorrect or missing


52 is a faulty knock sensor signal. The connection there may be loose or broken. 71 is an EGR temperature signal fault. Again the connection may be loose, or the EGR temp sensor faulty, or the EGR vacuum switching valve faulty.

I NEED INSTRUCTION ON HOW TO FIX MY HIGH FUEL CONSUMPTION PROBLEM,TOYOTA CAMRY 1999 V6 MODEL Details


This can be caused by a variety of problems:
- very dirty air cleaner element- incorrect ignition timing- emissions system faulty (EGR valve blocked)- fuel injection system faulty (pressure relief valve blocked)- MAP sensor failed- throttle position sensor faulty- coolant temp sensor faulty- air temp sensor faulty

For most of these a trouble code should be available to steer you in the right direction. Is the check engine light flashing a code?

You can manually test the egr valve by pushing up from underneath it and seeing if the spring loaded valve moves and re seats itself. If no, it's bad.

2000 toyota camry code p0401 change egr valve light came back on. Check for possible soulution. I'm having trouble locating the EGR Pressure Sensor (DPFE) at stores. Is there another name for this part...


First did you reset the computer after replacing the EGR valve if you don't the computer doe'nt reconize the new sensor so it doe'nt reset the peremiters.Then check all passages and lines in the intake manifold there could be a clogg somewhere.Go to www.rockauto.com and you'll find EGR pressure sensor for under $30.00.

What's wrong with the code P0401 for camry 96


P0401 OBD-II Trouble Code
Insufficient EGR Flow
What does that mean?
EGR stands for Exhaust Gas Recirculation. It is part of the vehicle emmissions system, and is used to reduce combustion temperature and pressure to control Oxides of Nitrogen. There are generally three parts to the EGR system: the EGR valve, an actuator solenoid, and a differential pressure sensor (DPF). These things work together to deliver the correct amount of recirculation based on engine temperature, load, etc. The P0401 code means that OBD detected an insufficient amount of EGR.
