  • pqinaz May 05, 2009

    I had a knock sensor code and an egr valve code come up. I put in a new knock sensor and egr valve only to have a egr solenoid (P1400) code come up. Checked all vacuum hoses and put a meter on the wire side of the solenoid. Vaccum hoses all pull vacuum on gauge and 12.43 volts on circuit. I figure solenoid is sticky or has some debris in it from old valve. Should I replace this too? I really am trying to avoid replacing my engine one piece at a time! Any insight would be greatly aprreciated.

Gadiame: The code P1400 is for the EGR valve and Evap canister purge control solenoid valve circuit.
An improper voltage signal is being sent to the ECM through the solenoid valve.
As far as whether the engine using a timing belt or gear? You mean chain? This engine uses a timing chain.
If I can answer any other questions, write me.

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.

That code is not in my book, it is a dealer specific code. Go to Auto Zone or Advanced Auto, and they will have a book that has "dealer" codes in it.

you have to get the sensor replaced on the transmission. It should not cost much. the sensor itself goes for $50+ depending on the condition and such.

Whate is code 1400 and 400 in nissan altima 2001. What does it mean when you get code for egr? How does it affect car?


P1400 DPFE Circuit Low Input
P0400 Exhaust Gas Recirculation Flow Malfunction

These codes represent a fault in the Auxiliary Emission Controls. Here's a brief describing of the EGR valve. The EGR stands for exhaust gas recycling valve. During cruising speeds, the valve opens allowing exhaust into the intake manifold. The purpose of this is to cool the temperature of the combustion inside the cylinder as the spark plug fires. This in turn, lowers emissions. If the EGR is stuck in either direction(open/closed), it can effect the idle of your vehicle and can stall it out at times. it can also trip the engine light as well. Good rule of thumb is to clean out the carbon out of the intake manifold thoroughly before you install a new EGR. this will prevent the engine light form coming on once more. if the carbon build up is high, chunks of it will jam the EGR, causing it to fail over and over.


Please rate and god bless.
