1st indication is a dead miss in 1 cylinder, next do a compression test. There will be 0 compression. If you find 0compression in a cylinder the cylinder head must be removed. Take the head to a machin shop for repair. They will tell you what it needs as far as parts. If this is the case, you might as well do both heads.
Probably not what you wanted to hear...Sorry

Wiring diagrm for egr valve 2009 jeep wrangler 3.8

JK jeep, i have 08 and full docs.
it wires to the PCM, same wire colors
as you can see drawing dont work right in fixya.
they get "crunched" badly"
the EGR is PWM modulated,
first is to clean in. the exhaust path must be good
the EGR must not stick closed or open.
p0405 means the pin on sensor part is stuck low.
tell me in most cases, the valve is stuck closed.
clean it is best first action.


the monitor pin is at X, this tells the PCM where the EGR moved
per PCM command. (called feedback) yours is hard stuck.

Doubtful the valve is "stuck". More likely to be burnt. It happens. Do a compression check then pull the head off and replace the valve that is losing compression.

    I have this code from an emission test PO403 for my Dodge Stratus RT, could someone tell me what it is and how I can fix it

    P0403 indicates a problem with the EGR valve system
    They sometimes get stuck and just spraying with WD40 can free it
