Question about 1996 Dodge Grand Caravan
If you stop by an Autozone, or similar big parts retailer, they will scan for codes free. Get it scanned and go from there, don't play the guessing game and end up replacing parts that aren't defective. Just because a friend of a friend had same problem and this is what they did, and it worked, doesn't mean you have the same problem. Many sensors etc, can sometimes cause similar symptoms.

P406 is a EGR code, EGR will also cause a knocking/ pinging sound when there bad. Very common problem. The position sensor inside the valve goes bad. Your going to have to replace the whole EGR valve and it can put out variety of codes from P0401 to P0406. The new valve will solve the problem and easy to replace, you can pick one up at Auto Zone and they can give you the step by step instructions to replacing the EGR with common tools. Good luck and hope this helps.

You cannot clean them purchase a new one and pull the old one out of the valve cover, and disconnect the hose that runs to it. install the hose on to the new egr with a new worm clamp and push the other end into the valve cover. should take about 10 minutes.
