Failed emissions got p0301,p0402 please help


V6 or 4cyl????
P0301- #1 cylinder misfire -Old/Fouled Plugs -Faulty spark plug wires/distributor or rotor (4cylinder only) -Faulty cam/crank sensor (v6 only) -Faulty #1 ignition coil or coil electrical connector (V6 only) -#1 Compression loss
P0402- EGR Issue A code P0402 most likely means one or more of the following has happened:
  • The DPFE (differential pressure) sensor is faulty and needs to be replaced
  • There is a blockage in the EGR (most likely carbon buildup)
  • The EGR valve is faulty
  • The EGR valve may not be opening due to a lack of vacuum

Check engine light comes on for 2004 Hyundai Sante Fe. O2 sensor was replaced but still has the problem. Does the EGR manifold tend to get clogged up on the Sante Fe? I fixed a Honda Civic check engine...


First of all, why was the O2 snsr replaced?... Check Engine light? What DTC (diagnostic trouble code) did you find stored in the ECU (Engine Control Unit)? The drivability you seem to be describing can have multiple causes -- faulty sensors, malfunctioning computer, clogged catalytic converter, leaky injectors, vacuum leaks, etc.

Ok... this is gonna take some time. The 04 Santa Fe came with 3 (three) different/possible engines -- the 4 Cylinder 2.4 lit, the 2.7 V6, and the 3.5 V6. Only the 2.4 (4 cyl) and the 3.5 V6 are equipped with EGR. The 2.7 does NOT have EGR. To answer part of your question, the EGR system on the 4 Cyl is known to develop restriction(s) in the EGR port (from the # 4 cylinder exhaust port to the EGR valve at the intake manifold). This port travels through the head (front to rear, i.e., Left to Right when viewing the engine from the transmission end). This port cannot be seen at the # 4 cylinder exhaust port unless you remove the exhaust manifold.

It would be very helpful if you could provide more detailed/specific information regarding the drivability issue & what/which codes were found related to the Check Engine light.

Replace egr valve on 3.5 litre 215ci v6 how to?


  • Disconnect the car battery. Locate the EGR valve. You may need to refer to the owner's manual.
  • 2 Unhook the air supply hose, vacuum hose and all electrical connections. You may need the screwdriver for this.
  • 3 Remove the EGR mounting bolts with the socket wrench.
  • 4 Unbolt the EGR valve from the EGR tube with the wrench. Use a wide-mouthed wrench, which works best for this.
  • 5 Look at the EGR valve. If there are holes in the valve, it definitely needs to be replaced. If there are no holes, you may opt to clean it by spraying a half can of carburetor cleaner into the valve. Let it sit, then use a gasket scraper, putty knife, small drill bit or long wood screw to scrape out the buildup in the valve.
  • 6 Install a new gasket and EGR valve if a total replacement is due. Attach all hoses, wiring and bolts that were previously removed.
  • 7 Reconnect the battery and test drive the car.


  • if this helps you please give a good thumbs up rateing thanks have good day

    EGR Valve or not?


    You have an EGR valve. For a specific location I recommend the Haynes repair Manual on your vehicle. This manual will also giving you testing procedures for testing the EGR valve.

    How to clean EGR valve passages in 1993 Isuzu Trooper DOHC V6


    You have to the EGR valve (sometimes the Intake manifold to EGR Vlalve line also). After you remove it take a drill bit the about 20 % smaller than the actual hole of the outlet side and rotate the drill bit with your hand to dig out the carbon. Aditionally the line coming from the intake manifold to the EGR valve will clog near the connection to the EGR valve. I use either a single piece of copper wire or the wire that you would use to tie ribar together to clean the line. When your done cleaning take a piece of vacuum line and connect it to the diaphram side and **** on it... then plug the line well with your thumb. Grasp the valve and blow thru it... Air should blow thru it freely. Remove your thumb from the vacuum line and try blowing again.. No air should pass thru the valve.
    Then reinstall the valve and start the vehicle with the vacuum line disconnected (but blocked off) Use another piece of vacuum line connected to the diaphram again and **** on the line.. The vehicle should die or run really bad. If it does this then you cleaned it correctly.

    Check the EGR tubes for carbon build up. It's not the fact that the EGR valve keeps going bad, the reason that there it thinks it's malfunctioning is the tubes itself will not allow enough flow. Remove them and clean them out the best you can.
