I don not remember the ecxact number of parts, however here goes. Takes about an hour.Remove plastic air management(1 bolt, 2 large hose clamps and 2 approx 1 inch hoses). Disconnect the battery terminals. Remove "U shaped vacuum hose from intake(alluminum about 4" in diameter, and elbow shaped). remove vacuum lines from EGR, and the plastic purge solenoid(has two port next to eachother. remove all electronic connection from the throttle positioning sensor, and the components between the intake and the firewall. Remove Cruise Control, and throttle cable. Remove intake(the elbow shaped part) four bolts at the base of it. I believe they are 8mm. Remove two bolts from the EGR valve(kind of a pain to get to) It is on the top of the block close to the fire wall next to the intake(elbow shaped 4 inch tube with TPS) I believe that they are 10mm. space back EGR 1/4 inch with smooth plastic shims to not damage seal, or replace seal. With everything apart clean all that soot and gunk out of that channel directly underneath intake(elbow) and port between that and the EGR. Make sure and take your time to clean this thoroughly. Put back together. The Electrical connectors only goon one way, however pay clos attention to those and the vacuum lines that they are all put back on in the correct places.

The fault is somewhere around the EGR valve - probably the EGR valve or the throttle position sensor.

Before replacing any sensors try removing and cleaning the EGR.

P1407 code 95 cougar

P1407 means EGR no flow detected. Is it a 4.6L ? I would check the vacuum lines first...disconnected, cracked etc. then clean out the EGR system (passages, EGR Valve), they are prone to getting stopped up with carbon.

Hi I have a 97 Ford Thunderbird that is throwing the codes: P0141, P0155, P0161. I am trying to find out why it didnt throw the code P135 as well.

have you had an electric short with a blown fuse? three of the four could have come up due to a wire shorting on the exhaust pipe or where they come together.

I have a 2000 hyundai accent with an error code of 1407. What does it mean and how do I fix it?

P1407 EGR No Flow Detected is what the code means. You will have to locate, replace or repair the EGR valve. I recommend the Haynes Repair manual as a reference.

You could have a blocked or dirty EGR valve or tube from the manifold or a non functioning EGR sensor.
