Question about 2005 Dodge Caravan

1 Answer

I was getting P0404 code from my van. Its a 05 Dodge Caravan SXT 3.3 ltr. V6. I changed the EGR Valve and still when I get up around 40 mph I am getting a little kick back. It feels like somethings clogged it keeps kicking back. What might the issue be? The check engine light comes on now and then when the issue occurs. Could it take a little time for the new valve to work? My email is M_Abear2004@Yahoo.Com.

More information would be needed if the check engine light displayed more codes after the EGR was replaced . Just because the code shows up does not always mean that is the part that failed. Looks like there is more to the issue here . you might even have a fuel filter or pump problem if your losing power at speed. . I would take it to your local auto parts store and have them read what codes are stored in the van.

SOURCE: EGR Valve - Engine Option Code

Hi, this is my first post. I had the same problem with my 2005 Grand Caravan. Great van, but all of the sudden, the check engine light came on, and then it started driving "jerky." I found this post, along with others on the web, and diagnosed it myself. Let me outline how I did that, since this will accumulate info from several different sites:

1. I turned the ignition key from the "on" to the "run" position about 5 times, and a code showed up in the mileage slot. My code was P 0404, which read more like "tripP 0404".
2. I looked up that code on google, and also asked the guy at Autozone. Both said it was a bad EGR valve.

**Side note: there is a little thing here in the 2005 Grand Caravan called a "XZZ Option Code" in relation to the EGR valve. As in, when you go to get a new EGR valve, they are going to ask you if you need the "XZZ Option" or the "XZZ Exception." When you ask the guy at Autozone what the difference is, he doesn't know. So, after a little research, the difference is this: if your VIN has the letters "XZZ" in it, then you need the "XZZ Option." If your VIN doesn't have "XZZ" then you don't need that option. (Thanks a lot, Dodge, for that bit of stupidity.)***

3. Autozone didn't have the EGR in stock, but Federated Auto Parts (aka KOI, in our area--Cincinnati) had five in stock, so I got one--it cost me about $85.00
4. After getting home, I changed it out, in the following steps.
a. I disconnected the battery.
b. I disconnected the electrical line coming to the EGR (by the way, the EGR sits just above the alternator...and if you don't know what the alternator is, take the parts to your local mechanic and ask him to change it out for you...)
c. I disconnected the vacuum line that comes into the top of the EGR, as well as disconnecting the other end of that line, just to get it out of the way. That took 4 bolts, and they were 8 mm.
d. I removed the two bolts (10mm) holding the EGR in place, and they were a bit tight to get to. I would suggest a 1/4" drive U-joint to get to the bottom one, but a two inch extension held just right will get the job done--I didn't have the u-joint for my socket so it can be done without it...not much fun though.)
e. I replaced the metal gasket (it came in the box with the new EGR), and reversed the steps to put everything back together.

After restarting and test driving the minivan, I have no check engine light, and the "shuttering" is gone. I'm about to drive to Texas next week...we'll see if it solved the problem. More news later.

I love the internet. Ride free, citizen!

SOURCE: 05 Gnd Caravan 3.3L - code: P0406

Exhaust gas recirculation sensor A (circuit high)
Obviously the sensor or connection is faulty. I'd try cleaning connection with contact cleaner, add some di-electric grease/lube to the connection, check all vacuum lines if applicable & have code erased, and try it.

    2006 Dodge Caravan Sputtering. Code says EGR Valve. Would an EGR valve cause the van to sputter and run rough?


    Absolutely. You'll know if your EGR valve is stuck or malfunctioning because your car will experience symptoms like rough idle and bucking on acceleration.

    Engine light came on in my dodge caravan sxt 3.3L 6cyl. Code P0404. It seems to be running fine, how do I check the EGR valve myself? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.


    To check the egr yourself you will need a hand held vacuum pump. To perform the test start the van and let it warm-up, then remove the top vacuum hose from egr valve and attach hand vacuum pump to egr valve. Apply about 5 in-hg vacuum to the egr valve. With the engine at idle speed and vacuum applyed the engine idle speed will drop or stall. If not then the egr valve is faulty and will need to be replaced. If the engine didi change idle speed and or stalled the egr valve is good. Hope this will help you.

    My 2006 dodge caravan is throwing the code po404, what does this mean and how can i fix it?


    p0404 is an EGR valve problem.
    Most are vacuum operated and is set off when the position doesnt match the expected one set by the PCM... however, depending on your location - the van may be equipped with an electrically actuated one that will need to be re-programmed at the dealership.

    P0404 err code and it feels like engine serges 45 to 55 mph


    Check your EGR valve hose for leaks/cracks etc, remove wiring connector & clean all contacts. Remove battery terminals before you start, but make sure you don't have to recode your anti-theft, or code your stereo, without proper info ready at hand. If your not sure, leave them on, but make sure key is off. Try again now, and see if code returns, if it does, get a new gasket for EGR valve, remove it & clean it thoroughly with throttle body spray cleaner, and re-install. It should be located close to throttle body, with 2 bolts attaching it to intake manifold. Near TP sensor & IAC motor. Try again, but see if you can get codes erased prior to, or immediately after, and see what happens.
