Question about 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix
Hello! This is a somewhat common issue where there is an excessive buildup of carbon in the EGR port in the upper intake manifold.
This is the EGR Valve as removed from the engine:
On your vehicle, you will notice that the flexible tubes are held in place by one bolt each. If you remove these tubes from the engine side only - you will be able to clean inside the port that they connect to. I have had good luck using a parts cleaner that any Chrysler dealership sells - it makes short work of carbon build up. Once you have the ports cleaned out - reassemble the EGR tubes to the intake. Be sure to get them seated fully before you tighten them back down.
Hope this helps and good luck!
