SOURCE: How to replace EGR valve on 2000 camry V6?

If you have a P0401 code from a CEL, the first thing is to check the EGR vacuum modulator. It is a little well usually next to the EGR. Pop the cap off and dust the little sponge inside. Sometimes this gets stuffed up with carbon particles and causes recirculation problems. You should clean the tubes hooked to it while you are there. Reset the code and see if the light comes back.

Replacing the EGR is not a tidy job. It is an expensive part to replace and you will disconnect the three hoses and dismantle it from engine by two nuts. Save it for the later if the previous trick fails to work.

The egr valve is located at the end of a hose that plugs into youe valve cover. It is pushed right into a rubber grommet that is located in one of the valve covers. I hope this helps. don.t forget to rate my nswer, thanks

SOURCE: Service engine code indicates EGR valve.

You could have a restriction in the egr ports. remove the valve. Plug the holes, start engine. 1 hole will be blowing out exhaust, the other will have large vacuum.

Where is the egr valve

Hi there:There is no EGR on the Duratec engine used in the X-Type petrol engines. These duratecs have VVT which, along with several other benefits, eliminates the need for an EGR.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Jaguar x type...started the car 2day when i put my foot on the accelerator there was no speed...i can put my foot all the way down and no speed its got no acceleration...its driving but slow...

if there is also black smoke coming out the exhaust - and the problem is intermittent - then it's the EGR valve - it sticks open - will need replacing.... Happened to mine this morning and this is what the Jaguar Assistance guy said. Mine is a 2006 2 litre X-type.

I have a restricted performance message in my Jaguar s type (amber warning light)

Hi is this petrol or diesel?

Most likely cause is one of 2 things, EGR valve Exhaust Gas Recycler or The air mass sensor

the EGR valve basically resends unburnt fumes back through the exhaust not dissimilar to a small turbo in its function and kind of does the same job on a smaller sacle. Quite often though they do not fail completely they just get dirty, you can remove this part your self and clean it with carb cleaner, do not use anything else but carburetter cleaner. you will notice inside the EGR is a small sensor very much like a small diode, spray this and clean the whole thing as best you can. be careful not to touch the sensor just use the spray for that part. then leave to dry naturally, shouldnt take long.

When these go or get dirty the car will feel really powerless, you might get 50 mph if your lucky maybe 70mph. they struggle on hills and you need to be in low gears all the time to get anything out of the car, also the light comes on. They cost for this model between £180 and £250 so its well worth trying to clean it first as this is most commonly the cause of failure.

the only other thing it could be would be the air mass sensor, again you can clean these but to be honest normally when these go you will have to buy a new one. unsure to clean all the connetction / wires to both parts also and ensure they have a good contact.

a new air mass sensor is under £100. if you need more info on these parts please get back to me.

Car lost power and started putting out black

The rubber pipe feeding air from the intercooler to the bottom of the EGR valve is probably split - this was the problem on mine - exact same symptoms!

Jaguar x type diesel loss of power, what can cause this?

A clogged EGR valve can cause loss of power on the x-type diesel. The best thing to do is to remove the valve and clean out all the carbon that will have built up inside the valve and re-fit. Also check your air filter
