Question about 2000 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

I'm getting a code that tells me to replace the EGR. The car also stalls out at 2800 rpm. I can turn the key off and it resets with no problem until i start the car again. would i just need to replace the egr and the wiring or just one or the other?Or do i need to go through the whole testing laid out in the manual? Just wondering if this is a common problem and there is an easy fix or not.

Your best bet is to change the egr and the sensor(if equiped with one) but to make sure have your pcm scanned and see what codes you get,ussually a code that keeps coming out is a hard code and needs part replacing.

you can have the codes read at a pep boys or auto zone(usually for free)

2002 jeep liberty 3.7L engine miss on 2 cylinders engine revs to 2800 rpm and shuts down comes back on at 2300 rpm and repeats.


stalls?
ok stalls are complex. there are over 50 causes.
no , im no listing them..sorry.
ill not tell you to read a book, but they do tell you how to diagnose all engines. made... no kidding.
so what is it.
so the CEL did not come on as the engine SHUTS DOWN.
then that means it never fully stalled. (a key fact)
but was the throttle dead, at the SHUT DOWN? key fact 2.
if the throttle is dead, at stall.
then that is the ASD relay cutting out.
if you had scanned it at the stall it be obvious with DTC's stating that fact. in fact 8 reason there are for that.
if not asd drop this try this.
1: lost spark, never tuned up in 10 years, so spark ends.
2: lost of fuel pressure.
there is my guess, 3 things. (i skipped bad engine, (loss of compression hot)

Got P03xx codes, DTC errors. that be top of list
here is the ASD list

Code po401


Sometimes the intake manifold gets carbon in it from a bad egr valve. You may need to pull the EGR and see if you cant clean it a little.

Fixed egr vac sys on 98 hyundai sonata 3.0 v6 now engine runs rough


It sounds like a vacuum problem is keeping the EGR valve open causing the other sensors to read this and more fuel would be injected by the ECM. u may of gotten an egr code but the problem is not the valve itself.

Looking for the location of the egr sencor for a ford 2001 taurus egine light is on solid car is bucking not stalling yet would like to clean it now. Thank you


Usually a bad or dirty EGR valve will cause an engine to stall when it is warm and it will not start until it cools down. In some cases the EGR won't trigger a check engine light. If the car stumbles at low rpm and then is fine at higher rpm, I would replace the spark plugs and wires. The EGR is located on or near the intake. It will have a vacuum hose connected to it and usually 2 bolts holding it in place. It looks like a handbell from a bicycle. You can also look up on the internet what the EGR valve looks like for a 2001 Ford Taurus. Please rate me on this answer.

When bought engine idled @ 800 rpm when warm, now engine lite is on and engine idles rough @ 500 to 600 RPM. Replaced rack and pinion, power steering, checked wires, replaced sparkplugs, # 1 plug was in...


could be numerous reasons. this is your best bet take it in to a mechanic and have your engine codes scanned. it is a minimal charge, some even do it for nothing it only takes 10 minutes.this will point you in the right direction.

EGR valve controls idle speed.

Throttle/Idle/running problem - wants to run too fast, or stall out


RPM's up and down check EGR valve and sensor. EGR valve and sensor control idle. That's why your getting the surging on rpm's and this could be giving out the other codes. If mass flow was bad car will not start and the same for the map sensor. O2 sensor measures gas and air for right mixer. TPS controls 0-60 speed as in throttle respons.
