Buying a Chilton/Haynes repair manual for your make/model/year would be one of the best investments you could make. It will tell you where the EGR valve is and how to replace it. These repair manuals also have the diagnostic codes. Your vehicle would use the OBD-II code reader.

Car has high idle when EGR Comanded open. iS AN ethrottle system. E throttle is comanded open 15% at same time. Happens randomly.

The EGR will open when you are cruising over 40 m.p.h., the vehicle is at full operating temperature, and you are not accelerating. The EGR should close when vacuum condition is low (as when you are accelerating), or when your speed falls below the preset (usually around 40 m.p.h.).
If your EGR and E-throttle are open at the same time, suspect a bad EGR position sensor, a bad EGR mounting gasket, or a sticky EGR valve.

Location of the EGR value 1996 Chrysler LHS

  • EGR valve for a 1996 Chrysler LHS

    Passenger side near the firewall. Look for a piece of plastic clipped to a metal bracket and the plastic will have EGR on it. This is a two piece system, follow the hoses for the other part. hope this helps .

I replaced the EGR on my 1999 saturn due to a P1404 code. After driving it for about a week code came back. The idle was not stable, this was the reason why I replaced the EGR. Now the idle is rough at...

i would remove the egr and just the passage to make sure it is not filled with carbon. common problem. here is some info for you as well.

Circuit Description
The linear EGR system consists of a linear EGR valve, the PCM, and its associated wiring. The EGR valve solenoid is controlled directly by the PCM when certain conditions have been met. The PCM contains a diode feedback circuit which dissipates energy when the valve is cycled OFF. When the PCM commands the EGR valve closed, a closed valve position value is learned. If the PCM commands the valve closed and the actual feedback value does not match the learned values, DTC P1404 will set.
Conditions for Setting the DTCImportant: When the PCM recognizes that the parameters for setting DTC P1404 have been set, the diagnostic software waits until the EGR cycles open 50 percent or greater 4 times and then resets. If after the 3 cycles the actual vs learned is not within the parameters, the DTC will be stored and the MIL, service engine soon, will be commanded ON.
Important: When this DTC sets, functions will be disabled. When repairs are complete, codes must be cleared and the ignition keyed OFF for at least 10 seconds to allow proper operation.
DTC P1404 will set when the actual closed value does not match the learned closed value within 20 seconds if:
• RPM is below 5,000 and the actual vs learned is greater than 0.2 volts. OR • RPM is above 5,000 and the actual vs learned is greater than 0.4 volts. Diagnostic Aids • Check for backed out or damaged terminals. • Check for a stuck open EGR pintle. Inspect the EGR pintle valve bore for carbon or debris and remove. Verify that the pintle moves freely and the return spring forces the pintle closed. • An open in circuit 452 will result in DTC P1404. • A short to ground is circuit 697 will result in a severe rough idle and driveability complaint and set a DTC P1404. • Compare the learned closed pintle position to the actual closed pintle position with the key ON and the engine OFF. If voltage differs more than 0.15 volts, check for backed out, damaged, poor terminal tightness, or an intermittent open in circuits 416 or 1456.

No Idle - dies. Truck has been sitting for six years. Had 2nd cylinder miss and rough Idle. Replaced plugs, hoses, adjusted TPS to Spec, and adjusted timming. I had to take vaccum line from Cruise...

I would check the EGR valve diaphragm to see if it will hold a vacuum. The VSV associated with the EGR valve is controlled by the computer and is probably what is kicking in at 1700 rpm. When the VSV opens, a leaky EGR diaphragm will let air into the intake manifold just ahead of the throttle body. This air will not be measured by the mass air flow meter/sensor and the resulting mixture will be very lean and lead to misfires.

1990 ranger 2.3L runs idle and when cruising. good acceleration. changed out the obvious, plugs, cap, filters etc. no luck. runs fine for awhile with egr sensor disconnected than reconnected, but...

There will be an egr control solenoid that allows vacuum to reach the egr solenoid, sometimes it will be called the egr vent solenoid. It is probably bad.
