Hi,


This code relates to the malfunctioning of EGR valve. Its easy to install and replace.

Please check the bellow links related to your issue:


http://www.ehow.com/facts_7225011_egr-solenoid-malfunction_.html


Also read the bellow article to have an in-depth knowledge related to your problem:-


http://www.wisegeek.com/how-can-i-tell-if-my-egr-valve-needs-to-be-cleaned-or-replaced.htm


However in your car the valve is located just above where the engine and transmission seam meets. There is the metal exhaust gas tube with 2x8mm bolts and a fibre gasket. The EGR mounts to the cylinder head with 2 10mm bolts and a metal gasket. There are 2 vacuum lines that go to the control solenoid, a black plastic pod mounted under the throttle body. It clips into the TB mounting bracket, and has a 3rd vacuum supply line and 1 electrical connector.


Please get back to us if you have any further query or else accept the solution.

Thanks for contacting fixya.com
