Egr valve engine light on. Is it the valve or sensor or short? Car does not run rough or exhibit any problem but engine light is on and has been for a while. I don't want to replace the valve and not correct the problem. I have tried to unplug the valve and tap on the valve and line and unplug the battery to try and reset the engine light but the engine light remains on.

NORMALLY, IF THE LIGHT COMES ON, AS U SAY, IT IS A PROBLEM WITH ONE OF THE THREE.

A SHORT IS LEAST LIKELY..
USUALLY A ELECTRICAL PROBLEM SUCH AS THAT DOES NOT REMAIN ISOLATED , ESPECIALLY OVER THE TIME FRAME U HAVE GIVEN.


I WOULD CHECK ALL YOUR UNDER THE HOOD FUSES AND RELAYS.


THERE IS A WAY TO TEST YOUR SENSOR YOURSELF WITH A GOOD QUALITY DIGITAL VOLT METER..

TROUBLESHOOT ALL THE SYMPTOMS A BAD EGR CAN REPRESENT AGAIN..MAKE SURE THERE ISN'T A SYMPTOM U HAVE MISSED.

GOOD LUCK

Where is the egr valve on a 99 Ford expedition


The EGR valve is in a very difficult spot to work on. If the EGR is bad it will set off the check engine light and make the vehicle run rough or stall at idle. It really doesn't make it run rough while driving or accelerating. What are the conditions when the car runs rough?

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.

OBD2 fault codes have no cut and dry fix for every car that has it in memory. Here is the general info on the code. This code refers to the EGR valve back pressure sensor called the "DPFE" sensor
P1401 - DPFE Circuit High Input
Symptoms - Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light) Possible causes
  • DPF EGR circuit open.
  • VREF short to PWR.
  • Damaged DPF EGR sensor.
  • DPFEGR circuit short to PWR.
  • SIG RTN circuit open.
  • Damaged PCM.
  • Possible solution A DPF EGR PID reading greater than 4.5 volts with the key ON and engine OFF or running indicates a hard fault.

    How do i test egr system on 93 toyota camry


    Testing steps:

    • Remove the vacuum hose on the top of the EGR valve and plug it.
    • Connect a short hose to the EGR valve.
    • Start the car.
    • Now **** on the hose, or use an appropriate tool to apply suction to the line
    • this will open the EGR valve the engine should stumble and try to die.
      If it does the EGR valve is working.
    There is an "Exhaust gas manifold pressure sensor" that measures the exhaust gas flow to the EGR valve. The problem is the sensor itself becomes clogged with exhaust carbon and gives the computer a fixed false reading, the computer in turn sends too much vacuum to the EGR valve and the engine runs rough, surges and may die.

    Car running jerky


    It's more than likely that it is just another sensor. Is your check engine light on? Common sensors that can cause that type of problem are MAP(Manifold Absoulute Pressure Sensor) or TPS(Throttle Position Sensor). Typically the MAP sensor would turn on your check engine light and the TPS would not turn on the check engine light. Another possilble cause is the EGR Valve(Exhaust Gas Recirculation Valve) and this valve also would not turn on your check engine light.

    Good Luck
    Hope this helps
