Part of the air filter system that uses hot air from the exhaust manifold to warm up inlet air during cold weather operations. It is actuated by a vacuum hose connected to the intake manifold by a check valve that goes to a small actuator valve in the intake snorkle of the air filter container. Make sure the vacuum check valve is in series.

Autozone, Pep Boys and other big parts stores will now scan that code for you free of charge. (obviously they hope you buy part to fix it as well.) Start there, rather than throwing parts at it and guessing, which always ends up costing more in the long run. Once you have code, it should point everyone in right direction. If not obvious, get back to us with that code(s) and we will be glad to further help you.

More than likley it is bad and needs to be replaced, but you could try to clean it. Sometimes they get carbon deposits stuck in them keeping them from closing or opening.

whoever installed the egr valve, if it wasnt you, just cleared the engine codes, thus giving you this problem once again. Get it scanned at autozone, and go from there.

SERVICE ENGINE LIGHT ON FAILED EMISSIONS


Yes, take it back. The might of replaced the Egr valve to turn off the light. Don't let them charge you for retesting it, that's why you took it in in the first place.
