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.

SOURCE: FAILED EGR VALVE

The EGR valve helps your car more efficiently and completely burn fuel by recirculating a portion of your exhaust and running it through the combustion process again. This results in a cooler, more complete burn of the fuel which decreases you car's noxious emissions by prohibiting the formation of some harmful gases.

The EGR valve is vital to your car's emission controls.

When the EGR valve goes bad, it must be replaced - it cannot be repaired.

  • EGR Valve = Exhaust Gas Recirculation Valve.
  • The EGR valve controls formation of noxious emissions.
  • Rough idle and poor acceleration can be caused by a faulty EGR valve.

  • The EGR valve, or Exhaust Gas Recirculation valve, is a vacuum controlled valve which allows a specific amount of your exhaust back into the intake manifold. This exhaust mixes with the intake air and actually cools the combustion process. Cooler is always better inside your engine. The exhaust your EGR valve recirculates also prevents the formation of Nitrogen related gases. These are referred to as NOX emissions, and are a common cause for failing emissions testing. Unfortunately, your EGR valve can get stuck, causing NOX gases to build up. You'll know if your EGR valve is stuck or malfunctioning because your car will experience symptoms like rough idle and bucking on accelertaion.

    The only short term problem is a decrease in gas mileage - but it should really be replaced before sensors become sooted or your cat. convertor gets overworked prematurely.

    2001 impala hard to start


    Hi David, As I'm sure you know, there can be several reasons that an engine becomes difficult to start. As your vehicle is getting on, it may be a good idea to have a compression test carried out on the cylinders. If the test provides good results have the MAF sensor checked. Another area of concern is the cam shaft sensor. Sometimes the sensors become defective but do not give fault signals. A defective cam sensor gives the problems you report. Regards John
