SOURCE: 1999 Mercury tracer EGR Code making Service Engine

go to auto zone and ask for a there portable engine dianostic scanner. hook it up under the steering wheel inside the car follow the instuctions and write the code down and clear the code while the scanner is hooked up. if you have an employee do it they will not clear the code. when you go back inside they will run the code and it will give you a pretty close idea of what else could be wrong. egr was replaced but it could be an O2 sensor or your exhaust manifold.

1999 Mercury Sable 24v OHC engine, starts normal but when engine begins to idle it runs rough and dies


this is a difficult one..
check for vacuum leaks by possibly a visual inspection and then spraying starting fluid around hoses , intake and so on..if any change, you might have found a vacuum leak/bad gasket.
otherwise, DO clean the Idle Air Control Valve 1st.
then check and clean EGR valve next..

1999 tracer with an engine idle that increases and then decreases while stopped.While driving, the engine will buck in any gear.The pcv valve and the fuel filter were replaced.Tests were done on the fuel...


Other than the idle control/throttle sensor the other items will not usually cause bucking or change of idle. After you drive awhile from a cold start the coolant temp sensor comes into play,then the EGR valve if vacuum is involved under load. So I quess your mechanic missed monitoring the 02 sensors after testing the fuel system. Hard to imagine. Have to road test hot for Egr and other drivability issues. You need a good drivability tech and always stick with best in their field. Hard to find. Have you ever gone for a drive with the person going to work on your car sitting in the pass seat. If they don't insist on that before they ever look at your veh or take your money--enough said. Did they call you to see if your happy with their performance? If not move on. MAF,AIT, most likely on idle and EGR on bucking. Quick look at 02 sensors You or they did a good job,Just didn't hit a home run,still on second base.

Need to replace my dpfe sensor on my 1999 mercury mountaineer. Where is it, i would like to change it myself


I believe the sensor that you are looking for is on the drivers side of the engine. If you have a 4.0 SOHC engine or a 5.0 engine the wiring will be the same. You will have a brown with a white tracer, a brown with a light green tracer, and a grey with a red tracer to the sensor. If you you have a 4.0 EI then you will have a Brown with a white tracer and 2 brown with a light green. If you follow the 2 tubes coming up from your exhaust manifold you should be able to locate your sensor it will have to tubes or hoses going to it from your exhaust manifold. Good luck.

97 tracer P0401 code won't go away


Late suggestion; it may be that the code needs to be reset via a code reader and that the problem will remain in memory until forcibly removed. That is fairly common.

Difficulty to replace EGR valve in 1999 totyota camry 4-cyl automatic


Not difficult at all to service the EGR Valve using a #12 mm socket wrench it is a five minutes job. However the VSV is another history and very difficult to be reached unless you have an elevator After the engine begin stalling I double checked the EGR which was completely carbonized. I cleaned it and also replaced IAC checked VSV and all sensors, but the engine follows stalling. Now I am looking for the Charcoal Canister which I simply can't find where it is located, then I will check the vacuum lines and the transmission sensors, but I have heard that EGR despite cleaned can keep bringing troubles. By the way, anyone has ever heard where in the car is installed the charcoal canister
