Yes, EGR valves are usually in a very accessible place on the engine. You may have to move a couple of things out of the way, but it's one of the easiest things to replace on your car.

2001 taurus dohc codes 171 and 174 replaced MAF, DPFE and IAC. New plugs and wires cleaned throttle body and egr valve. Has high idle, surging on highway. Disconnect the IAC and it runs perfect,...


There is a large vac line coming straight down from the throttle body that goes to the PCV system. See if it has a hole in it. It is likely sucking air.

Check engine light on 401


Should be the same as the Contour. Try these items, let me know.

go to www.contour.org a web site for contours, i got alot of info on
the old P0401 trouble code over there.. will cover your taurus as well
as the contours..... one is to clean the manifold by pulling off the
throttle valve body and pulling all the carbon deposits out of the
openings.. i had the P0401 on my 96 contur and changed out the EGR, the
EGR vacuum modulator and still have the problem code and will get to the
cleaning behind the throttle body when i get a chance to get to it....
been like this for about 2 yrs. now... no problems running the car, just
the light stays on... i can get it to go out by disconnecting the
battery but it comes back after two cycles in the car start up.....

Yes you can clean the EGR valve with carbon that's carbon cleaner. But you could use Carbrator cleaner but it won't clean as good as Carbon cleaner.
