All you need do is to take the car for a scan. If there is an error code get back to me.

Or if there seem not to be a code you need to reset the service engine soon/ check engine light.

Rate my solution.

I gotta 1997 toyota avalon its running rough i ran a scanner it threw two codes po441 an po402. i need help figuring out wat these codes are


Hi there osborne_shay,

Those codes refer to a problem with the drive train in your Avalon. Here is what the codes mean.


PO441-Evaporated Emission Control System / Incorrect Purge Flow
PO402-Excessive gas flow through the EGR valve

The cause for these issues are either that the components are faulty or they just need to be cleaned.

EGR valve is being cleaned due to "Check Engine"


CLEANING THE VALVE WILL NOT RESOLVE THE ISSUE, IT SHOULD BE REPLACED.

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.

94 camry engine light on, code 71, how do i fix it


Go to Autozone and have your current EGR Valve, removed from the car, tested and they will determine if it is defective. They tested 2 for me, and neither was a replace, just a clean and they worked great. If they don't have a brand that suits your wants, just test it, then buy the new somewhere else, no commitment to buy.
The most common problem with these EGR valves is they get plugged up from carbon build up. Best way to test it is with a little hand held vacuum pump. Hook it up to the EGR valve and with the engine running at idle and squeeze the vacc pump handle a couple times to open the EGR valve. That should kill the engine. If it dosent, the EGR valve is probably plugged up. At that point you'll have to take it off and clean the carbon out. Even if you have your mechanic check into it, it shouldnt be that expensive to remove it and clean it out or replace it.

Good Luck and hope this helps: Oh and I think theres two EGR.. check the one on the bottom of the engine to. I am not sure but i think there are two EGR valves on your camery.

Denalis are famous for clogged fuel filters. Change the fuel filter first and see what happens, Get the code for the check engine light. It could be you have a clogged EGR ports. Remove EGR valve and clean out the ports, replace with new gasket and see what happens. Advise of results.
