The code p1400, is for an egrc solenoid valve, not the egr valve, they are 2 seperate items

exhaust-gas recirculation (EGR): An emissions-control system that reduces an engine's production of oxides of nitrogen by diluting the air/fuel mixture with exhaust gas so that peak combustion temperatures in the cylinders are lowered.

exhaust-gas recirculation valve (EGR valve): A valve, generally vacuum operated, to regulate the exhaust gas flow into the intake manifold.

EGR control solenoid (EGRC): receives ported and manifold vacuum, an EGR temperature sensor and a control backpressure transducer valve. THE operation of the system is controlled by the PCM which operates the EGRC solenoid. The manifold vacuum system utilizes a vacuum tap in the air intake system positioned after the throttle valve. The ported vacuum control system uses a vacuum tap in the throttle body which is exposed to an increasing percentage of manifold vacuum as the throttle valve is opened during acceleration. The backpressure transducer valve monitors the exhaust backpressure as the engine rpm increases or decreases to aid in controlling the amount of the EGR vacuum signal. The EGR temperature sensor is used to inform the PCM of temperature changes in the EGR passage way. This helps the PCM determine the EGR on/off time.

that should help on what they all do.

now by knowing all of that i highly doubt that the control solenoid could cause the problem, and if it was that then u probably have a PCM problem not the solenoid or both.P01400 generally means that the ECM is not seeing the correct voltage drop when it grounds the EGRC valve located between the banks of CLY'S near the top Radiator hose location the EGRC solenoid valve turns vacuum on to the EGR circuit or vents. With a OHM meter unplug the EGRC valve and measure resistance at the two pins. Most likely your car has a bad EGRC valve or a BAD wire to it from the engine control module. Valve Nissan Dealership would cost around $45 labor to diagnosis and replace $150. Make sure proper diagnosis is performed check the engine wiring harness with a stop lamp light bulb hooked to the EGRC connector to see if it lights up when driving. That way you know the circuit is ok. A engine harness with a open circuit is a bad surprise after spending $200 for the valve. Good Luck

1997 Nissan alti ma threw code p1400. Cleaned she valve & checked she control solenoid harness. Replaced the egr control solenoid and it is still stalling at takeoff. Help please?


code p 1400 refers to exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system or evaporative emission (EVAP)canister purge system===causes--wiring---EGR or EVAP valve or ECM
the valve in the EGR may be faulty and bot the solenoid or the problem could be in the EVAP side

Code p1400 on my nissan altima check engine light


P1400 - EGRC Solenoid Valve

The P1400 code is for the EGR solenoid and not for the valve. The solenoid control the opening and closing of the valve. You should check the solenoid hoses and the connector. Also check if there is voltage at the green/yellow wire.

Hope helps.

Code P1400 on a 1997 nissan maxima. help car wont pass inspection


P1400 on your vehicle is described as :Differential Pressure Feedback EGR Circuit Low Input You either need a new DPFE valve, or a new EGR valve. Both can be tested for functionality before replacing them both. EGR valve is more likely I think. Cleaning it may not improve its performance, but its worth a try. Also check the vacuum lines between the DPFE and EGR system. The EGR valve and DPFE are usually close together above the exhaust manifold/downpipe. you need service instructions to test these items, suggest you go to a garage really...

Auto Diagnostic Trouble Code


cORRECT. tHIS CODE DOES DEALs With emmissions. P1400 deals with the EGR valve. In case u are not aware, EGR stands for Exhaust Gas Re-circulation. What really this valve does is that it re-cycles some of the exhaust gases into the cylinder for combustion. The EGR valve might be blocked or has malfunctioned. It is advised that this valve changed or consult with a mechanic who is knowledgeable about this technology. a malfunctioned/dis-abled EGR system will cause the car to fail an emissions test, and may cause the EGR passages in the cylinder head and intake manifold to become blocked with carbon deposits, necessitating extensive engine disassembly for cleaning. So it is advised that u repair this ASAP
