Sorry the video was only one second long.
Have you checked base fuel pressure ? Is the check engine light staying on ?

SOURCE: replaced egr valve. still

is there a steel tube that runs up to the valve cover? If so check to see that it isn't blocked. If it blocks up it will give you a code that the EGR isn't working and mess up the idle.

SOURCE: Had a bad egr valve

You have a plugged exhaust, replace the catylictic converter and find out what make it fail and plug, rich fuel mixture is most common cause of overheated burnt cat. The EGR is just a symtom of the plugged exhaust.

SOURCE: my 94 s10 4.3 vortec was running very rough

I hope this helps, I have had this problem 1 other time.
The EGR valve you bought was a negative and it calls for a positive. Or visa/ verse. If that is the case, it will not start. There are 2 different EGR's for 1994, CFI & TBI, both are the type of injection and are not interchangable on the EGR valves.

SOURCE: FAILED EGR VALVE

The EGR valve helps your car more efficiently and completely burn fuel by recirculating a portion of your exhaust and running it through the combustion process again. This results in a cooler, more complete burn of the fuel which decreases you car's noxious emissions by prohibiting the formation of some harmful gases.

The EGR valve is vital to your car's emission controls.

When the EGR valve goes bad, it must be replaced - it cannot be repaired.

  • EGR Valve = Exhaust Gas Recirculation Valve.
  • The EGR valve controls formation of noxious emissions.
  • Rough idle and poor acceleration can be caused by a faulty EGR valve.

  • The EGR valve, or Exhaust Gas Recirculation valve, is a vacuum controlled valve which allows a specific amount of your exhaust back into the intake manifold. This exhaust mixes with the intake air and actually cools the combustion process. Cooler is always better inside your engine. The exhaust your EGR valve recirculates also prevents the formation of Nitrogen related gases. These are referred to as NOX emissions, and are a common cause for failing emissions testing. Unfortunately, your EGR valve can get stuck, causing NOX gases to build up. You'll know if your EGR valve is stuck or malfunctioning because your car will experience symptoms like rough idle and bucking on accelertaion.

    The only short term problem is a decrease in gas mileage - but it should really be replaced before sensors become sooted or your cat. convertor gets overworked prematurely.

    SOURCE: car idles rough in park also runs rough in overdrive

    Sometimes a rough idle like that is a fuel filter. As you've already done the plugs and wires the fuel filter would be my next bet.

    Sounds like EGR Valve (Exhuast Gas Recirculation Valve) is sticking in the open position allowing exhuast gas into the intake manifold to soon which at idle will cause the engine to either run real rough or to stall out.Some EGR valves can be taken off and clean the carbon out of it or you can replace it.

    The hissing could be a vacuum leak. Depending on the leak it could be a EGR valve issue, manifold gasket but you also need to check the fuel lines, pump and filter. It could also be a bad catalytic converter.

    Where is the piont where you plug in the diagnostic connector on a 2001 petral vitara


    The common faults on this engine are EGR valve and IAC valve.
    The EGR causes rough running and cutting out,
    The IAC causes just cutting out without the rough running, stalling at junctions etc is the usual complaint.
    If you pm me the cars reg, chassis no etc i could see if i could email you the manual its a pdf so should be quite straight forward.

    I have a 1997 jimmy and it cranks up fine but it starts bogging down when i am driving and when i try to climb a hill


    You may have a clogged up egr valve. When the egr valve gets clogged up with carbon, the truck will run rough, surge stall, and be very anemic on power. Is the service engine soon(check engine) light on? I've dealt with this issue before, and those 4.3 v6's tend to get egr issues. Try this: when it bogs and runs rough, stop truck, open hood, and tap on egr valve base( where it bolts to engine) if rough running clears up, there's your problem. Egr valve is located on front of engine just to the rt of alternator bracket.

    The most common problem is a clogged EGR valve. In any case, you should take it to a mechanic who has the tools to diagnose it further, because 1/2 a dozen things can cause rough idle in a 10 year-old Windstar.
