Your post says it is a v6 but you say a 2.2 4 cyl in your question. VSV is located near the rear of the valve cover on the front of the engine.

SOURCE: Difficulty to replace EGR valve in 1999 totyota camry 4-cyl automatic

If you have small hands it can be easy. The space between firewall and EGR is tight but it wasn't too difficult to remove. The vacuum hose at the bottom was hard to pull off and I ended up cracking it and had to splice it. It was more difficult to re-install the EGR then remove it. I had a difficult time with keeping the gasket aligned while bolting it in to the lower tube. I took a few attempts. I suggest when replacing the EGR leave the mounting bolts loose so you can more easily align the metal tube. I would tighten the metal tube at the bottom of EGR first then tighten the upper two mounting bolts on top. It took me about 5 minutes to remove and 15 minutes to replace. I would be sure to clean the IAC too after cleaning the EGR. I sprayed throttle bottle cleaner down the bottom hole located on the throttle body and let soak about 15 minutes then start and run the engine a minute and repeat the process. This helped smooth the idle while stopped at a light. It also stopped the idle from shaking and almost stalling the car out at a traffic stop when the engine was warm.

P0441 is Evap Emission Incorrect Purge Flow; the repair you are describing is easy, and should correct the P0441 restricition...I would anticipate no large problems.

SOURCE: 1997 Camry Valve Cover Gasket Replacement

Removal of the plenum is pretty straight forward. You will need to replace the plenum gasket after you remove it; the gasket is not reusable. Personally, if I was going to take the trouble to remove the plenum, I would replace the plugs and wires back there, also.
I know, I have a 93 Camry V6, and it is a real pain to do the plugs and wires with the plenum on. There are no secrets or great tips on the plenum removal, just take your time. Remember that there are different size bolts, and where they go. Please get back to me if you need any more info...Hope this helps, and thanks for choosing FixYa to resolve your issue.
The graciousness of a FixYa rating for my assistance would be greatly appreciated.

There is a VSV (vacuum switching valve) , usually mounted on the back side of engine block, under the intake manifold, as well as the map sensor, that can also cause that code if one or the other is faulty. It takes some pretty detailed troubleshooting to confirm this in some cases, so if that's not in your line of work, you may have to have it properly diagnosed, or take a 50/50 shot at which one first.

SOURCE: power window toyota camry

Fuse box is by drivers left knee. Above this are the flashers and about 3 inches above this is the circuit breaker for the windows and door locks. breaker is silver, about 1/2 by 5/8 inch and in the center is the button you need to push in to reset. I used an unbent paper clip to press it. Make sure unit is not energized. May need to unplug breaker first. Press in center button until it clicks.

How do I fix code P402 on the 1998 V6 3.0L Toyota Camry XLE?


That is "Exhaust Gas Recirculation Flow Excessive Detected". The EGR valve may be gunked up or stuck open, so remove and check that. It may also be that the VSV (vacuum switching valve ) connected to it has failed. In Toyotas these little solenoid valves sometimes fail when hot but test OK when cold.

PO 441


This is a incorrect purge flow code, try replacing the purge vsv located on the hose that has the green valve cap on it, one hose has vacuum when the engine is running the other hose goes back to the fuel tank, the valve has an electrical connector on it .

1997 toyota camry V6 high idle


The idle is controlled by the car's computer, so it is getting wrong signals, or its controller is faulty. This is the Idle Air Control Valve, which may need cleaning or replacing. IAC is expensive, about $150, so try cleaning first. See here p271

http://www.turboninjas.com/camry/eg2.pdf



Also possible is a failed A/C idle up vacuum switching valve (VSV), See p67, 209 and 295 in the above link. If testing this, do so when hot, as that is when they fail.

CODE PO441 DODGE INTRAPID 2002 EREPAIR


Here is the definition of the code.
Possible causes are a defective gas cap or a leak in the vent system.

P0441 DODGE Description The vapor pressure sensor, Voltage Solenoide Valve (VSV) for EVAP, Voltage Solenoide Valve (VSV) for canister closed valve (CCV) and Valve Solenoide Valve (VSV) for pressure switching valve are used to detect abnormalities in the evaporative emission control system. The ECM decides whether there is an abnormality in the evaporative emission control system based on the vapor pressure sensor signal. Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P0441 is recorded by the ECM when there is a malfunction in either the VSV for EVAP, the VSV for pressure switching valve, or in the vapor pressure sensor itself, or when evaporative emissions leak from the components within the dotted line in Fig. 1 below.

The ECM closes the CCV and opens the VSV for pressure switching valve causing vacuum to increase in the entire EVAP system. The ECM continues to operate the VSV for EVAP until the vacuum is increased to a specified point at which time the ECM closes the VSV for EVAP. If the vacuum did not increase, or if the vacuum increased beyond the specified limit, the ECM judges the VSV for EVAP and related components to be faulty.

Obd code 446 for 1999 toyota camry 2.2L How to fix it


Do you mean P0446 since I'm guessing you removed the P and 0 from the beginning.
This is related to your Fuel system

Your gas cap may not have been tightened fully (this usually generates a different code though)
Your purge solenoid may be malfunctioning
Your canister may be clogged

Every now and then the car wants to stall but it does not


You have verified the EGR valve will operate when vacuum is applied so the valve and chambers are good..correct? If thats the case, then
your issue here is the VSV (vaccum switching vavle), these intermittently get stuck. Follow the vaccum lines down behund the intake, you will find the vsv located on the back side of the block just above where the drive axle mounts to the block.
Replace this VSV and the modulator valve at the same time, they tend to fail togather.
Good luck, i hope this helps...please rate me a fixya

Need to find location of egr sensor


A 2000 Camry with a 4cyl does not have a EGR sensor. The ECU uses the readings from the MAP and AF sensors to determine if the EGR is working.
You have a EGR VSV (vacuum switching valve) and a EGR modulator but no position sensor. Only the V6 has this.
