Question about GMC Sierra 1500

1 Answer

I have a 1996 GMC 1500 pickup truck. V-6 engine. My scan tool says I have a PO153 problem. A couple of months ago I put a new EGR valve in. I also notice on my gages inside the truck that the Battery voltage is down to 9 Volts. The truck engine isn't missing, but can anyone help me with this PO153 code I am getting.

A code P0153 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:

  • The oxygen sensor is faulty
  • The wiring to the sensor is broken / frayed
  • There is an exhaust leak
If your truck is actually reading only 9 volts then you need a battery/ alternator

CODE P0406 APEARS '04 DODGE HEMI


P0406 is the EGR valve. It sits on the right front of the engine. Just remove the two bolts on the tube and the two bolts on the valve itself and there you go. Reset the lamp with a scan tool or by disconnecting the battery for a couple minutes and retest.
