SOURCE: WHERE DO I LOCATE THE EGR VALVE ON MY 2001 CHEVY IMPALA 3.8 V6

The egr valve is located at the end of a hose that plugs into youe valve cover. It is pushed right into a rubber grommet that is located in one of the valve covers. I hope this helps. don.t forget to rate my nswer, thanks

SOURCE: rough running, erratic spark

Run a compression test on the cylinders.If reading is low on any drop a little engine oil into the pot. If compression rises you have compession ring problems. Remove all plugs before you try this and place leads away from engine.

SOURCE: 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe Ignition coils & EGR Valve

Well I went ahead and took a go at changing the coils, plugs and wires yesterday. It literally took maybe 15 minutes and my hands didn't even get dirty. This is something that the auto place wanted to charge me 650 to do. I spent 200 on parts. I didn't realize the coils were the things sitting on top of the spark plugs. I think my 4 year old could've done it. All I had to do was unbolt the coils detach the wires and then replace. It was too simple.

Ok, i would ave the ignition coil pack tested for its operational valve asap if possible. this is either an ignition coil pack issue or, a bad ECM. the ECM controls the ignition timing in this vehicle so, the problem will be there if the crank shaft sensor and cam sensors are ok.

I would pull the trouble codes asap as well. this will help diagnosis this issue correctly. this can be done at a local auto zone or a local mechanics shop as well.

The a/c makes it worse because you are asking the engine to pull a load missing one cylinder. If you have alternate transport or like working on a hot engine you can take number 3 wire to the autoparts and get one wire to match length. You may want 1 plug in case wire doesn't help.

P0303 Flashing Service Engine Light when driving


P0303 ignition misfire on cylinder #3.
Possible Causes:

1.Fuel injectors, related wiring, sensors, computer issues
2. Running out of gas, or poor fuel quality
3. Evaporative emissions system (EVAP) concerns: fuel vapors leaking into engine
4. Incorrect Fuel Pressure
5. EGR system concerns: leaking EGR valve or restricted ports
6.Base engine concerns: low compression, valve train problems and timing issues
7. Ignition system concerns including, but not limited to:
Faulty spark plugs
Faulty coil or related wiring
Ignition module or related wiring issues
Ignition related sensor faults or wiring issues

You will have diagnose each element until you find root cause.
And it could be more than one element faulting out.

From the symptoms of the problem and the precautions you have done i think its time to check the EGR valve.Clean your EGR valve and then put it again. How handy you are in ding this?

As the check engine light is on did you scan for error code which will help you more specific to locate the problem.

It starts fine but it misses when it is started we changed plugs n wires and egr valve. could it be the timing?


Check the firing order of the engine and make sure the plug wires are on correctly. Timing doesn't change when replacing plugs and wires. If the order is correct check to see if the wires are on the plugs correctly and not broken. Looking in a dark place you can see if there is a spare jumping from a defective wire.

Truck not firing properly front coil pack not firing at all.


if this truck has an o2 sensor i would replace that and also make sure the cat-converter is not plugged,this would give you your powerloss and egr code,next is your coil,this may be caused by the computer or your crank sensor,look at the tone ring that the crank sensor uses and make sure its not missing teeth or broken,also check all your fuses.

Starts good but bogs out in gear


Tuned-up lately, like new plugs & wires? Check EGR Valve, and also cycle key to retrieve any trouble codes that may be stored that will point you /us in right direction, and let us know what came up. Turn key to on, off,on,off,on, and leave in on position & count flashes of "check engine" light. goes like this: 2 flashes, pause, 2 more is code 22. 3 flashes,pause 4 more, is code 34........write them down & get back.
