I would start by taking it off and cleaning it but also keep in mind that those are known for the head gasket going so you might want to have that checked also.

I meant how do you replace an egr sensor in a 2005 rendezvous?


A faulty egr would not create a high idle issue. if an egr valve were to open while idling then it would create a heavy stumbling engine or it would die right out. if there is a check engine light on (or service engine soon light) have the codes pulled. Failing that then I suggest taking it to a reputable shop

Code p0405


You need to diagnose the EGR System
Not replace parts in hope of getting it right
Codes only indicate an Emissions Malfunction
or Fault, thus the code
Codes & trouble charts are used to then component test
Google the code & study the problem
There are many EGR Codes--- study yours ,as it pertains
to your vehicle & engine package
Try You Tube Video-- to get a basic of what egr system is & does

I have a 95 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.2L V8. Check engine light stays on, runs rough, has a fuel smell sometimes, idles low at a stop unless in park. Emission code 32 comes up. EGR? What do I do to fix this?


On the right side of your intake manifold,you will see a round mushroom looking thing with a vacuum hose running to it. You can check it by reaching under it and feel for a fairly large hole. inside the hole, there is a metal diaphragm . While the engine is idling, push up on the diaphragm and the engine should run very rough. If it doesn't, replace the EGR valve. Thats what it's called. Very easy to replace. two bolts. good luck

My 01 Acura MDX intermitently stalls and I can be immediately restarted. I had EGR codes & o2 codes. Allof those problems were corrrected. But the engine still continues to stall after highway driving...


This is still a EGR symptom coming up to a stop, Its not going to give you a code and it wont . This can only be found by a data stream, you can try these as a solution clean the throttle body and do a idle air control cleaning with a MAF cleaning, these should solve the problem But I am still sticking with EGR as a problem. But do a throttle body and idle air cintrol with a MAF cleaning,

I have a 96 Honda Civic HX. When I am at idle the car starts to shake and the rpms fall almost to zero. I took the car to a mechanic and was told that I need a new Catalytic Converter and the EGR ports...


Yes and No. The EGR can cause the car to idle rough and or stall. I am assumeing the check engine light was on and set code for EGR and Catalytic Converter. If the engine isn't running right it is possible the cat won't work right due to improper air fuel ratio that the EGR is causing. To do repair proper the EGR should be fixed then clear codes and see if the code for Catalytic Converter. There are other reasons that would your car to idle rough or stall I am just assuming that this mechanic got codes or tested the EGR right.

While I am idling at say a stop light for any period of time the car every so often seems to have a rough surge somewhere under the hood. Could that be the fan kicking on causing that or is there something...


IF THIS IS A V6 ENGINE IT COULD BE ANYTHING, BUT YOU MUST CHECK ALL EMISSIONS EQUIPMENT, VACUUM LINES, CLEAN IDLE AIR CONTROL VALVE AND AND ESPECIALLY TEST AND CLEAN THE EGR VALVE AND TEST MAP SENSOR,AND OTHERS-FUEL PUMP AND FUEL PRESSURE, INJECTORS, ETC..(all fuel related stuff)
NO, NOT AN EASY SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM.
IF IT'S A V8 CHECK OUT THIS WEB PAGE.
