Remove the throttle body housing on the top of the intake, it is a 90 degree tunnel like small piece held by 4 small bolts, turn it over and look for two holes, these holes are for the EGR valve flow, they are probably plugged up with carboned crud, clean them out with the tip of a screwdriver if neccessary to remove all the crud, once its clean reinstall it and reset your check engine light, hope this helps, let me know

OK, if you replaced the EGR hose, did you go all the way to change the EGR Valve? A stuck open EGR Valve can cause a rough idle and almost make it cut off.
Also, a vacuum leak on the EGR valve can cause a rough idle.

Bottom hose on egr valve keeps blowing off, what could be causing this?


Hoses are a vacuum source,they won't come off,
unless somehow the valve is shot inside & exhaust
gases have some effect

You should have a MI Lamp lite if the valve was bad

EGR Valve keeps blowing out and no power


EGR valve blow-out can be caused by a clogged catalytic converter. A clogged cat. converter will cause pressure to back up in the engine. A test to perform is remove the front oxygen sensor from the exhaust to see if the engine runs better. Removing the oxygen sensor will relieve the pressure if, in fact the cat. converter is clogged. Another cause for EGR blow-out could be that the timing has jumped.The timing can be checked to diagnose this issue.

The egr valve regulator hose keeps blowing out. i took out the catalytic converter, replaced the plugs & wires, egr valve and still the same results


You removed the Cat? Maybe just plug the EGR regulator hose connection since you have no catalyst anymore.

How do I change the egr valve and is there anything else that needs to be done in conjunction to keep the check engine light from coming back on?


the valve seldom fails. The lines that are connected to it fill with carbon and the valve opens and flow of exhaust doesn't happen. The senser is in the egr tube and it fails more the the valve even clogging up. EXUP senser, has two vacume lines and a 3 wire electrical connecter. The hoses break and come off the tube they connect wo gets clogged, hook a piece of hose to each one and blow though, shoulld blow easy. if bothe lines blow though easy and the hoses are good, the car is running smoothly at idel and the check engine light can be reset and drive the car and the light comes back on and has the same code but runs smoothly all the time replace the senser reset the computer and away you go

It keeps stalling and won't keep running after the


Check the egr valve by located it and the vacuum hose connected to it. pull of the hose and check it for wear like cracks or hardening of the rubber. If it looks ok, reconnect it to the egr and start the engine while it is cold and with the engine idling, remove the hose from egr valve. If the engine sputters and then dies, pull off the vacuum hose one more time and try to start the car. If it runs fine with the hose disconnected, replace the egr valve.

99 4 runner when i get off the express way and get to the stop sign the idling will go all the way down and stop runne=ing, but will jput it in park and restart and all is well, driving 35 or 45 mph on...


This has to do with "lean" gas mixture (too much air, not enough gas)

The throttle air valve is not closing enough after being "wide open" at higher speeds, or

Fuel injectors are clogged and can't respond quickly enough for the drastic change.

The fix is the same for both. Use a name brand (not store brand) "Complete Fuel System Cleaner" $8 AutoZone. Not just an injector cleaner.

It should clear up in a couple of days of driving.

Changing the air filter will not affect this condition. - system already gets enough air.

Hope this helps!
