Where is the egr solenoid located


EGR vacuum solenoid is located below your EGR valve. Center your self on the engine, look between the rear of the engine and your firewall. You can see your the top of you EGR valve, there will be a small vacuum hose connected to the top. Follow that small hose straight down from your EGR valve and it connects to the solenoid. You can see the solenoid better from beneath the car. May have an orange connector. Hope this helps.

Got a 2001 Ford Taurus with 128K miles, engine was rebuilt 10 months ago, for the last 4 months it has been chugging or hesitating when I'm stopped at a light, Autozone codes said egr pressure sensor,...


Sounds like the egr solenoid stuck..Not the valve..When you are sitting at idle,,you should be able to take off the vacum line and there should be no vacuum..,If there is back track that line and see if it goes to a solenoid..I bet the vacuum lines are crossed..One should have vacuum,,the other should go to the egr valve..If they are crossed on the egr solenoid,,then you end up with constant vacuum going to your egr valve..Until you figure it out leave the line off the egr valve and block the line..If you are constantly haveing the valve held open,,you killing sparkplugs and the catylitic converter

This is the code number after testing for the check engine light P0401. Also , the exhaust gas recirculation flow is insufficient.


More than likely you have a faulty EGR Valve Pressure Sensor, especially if your EGR Valve Pressure Sensor is the original metal type. The new sensor is made of plastic and doesn't corrode like the old design. This sensor is located on the Intake Manifold.

Here is the sensor: http://www.autozone.com/autozone/parts/2001-Mercury-Sable/EGR-Valve-Pressure-Sensor/_/N-jfkhrZ93y2i

It is also possible that the EGR Valve has a clogged port, but this is less likely.

Insufficient egr flow, already replaced egr valve and purge valve canister


I too replaced the egr valve and was discouraged that the check engine light came back on with the same "insufficient flow" code. I took it to my mechanic to put it on the monster diagnostic machine. It said "check all vacuum line, and or map sensor". After looking real close we found a melted vacuum tube, and a cracked vacuum angle connector. Replaced both vacuum pieces, reset the codes, and good to go. If that fails than the next thing is the map sensor, that tells the EGR valve what to do.

Chevy Impala 2001 w/ 3.8L engine - EGR stuck open


there are a couple of things, first make sure there are not restriction in the exhaust, i know the dealer has had to replace converters under warranty because of this problem, then theres a reflesh program for the computer due to this problem, and lastly,run with egr off make sure it clean of carbon,carbon gets stuck in pintle sets check eng lightbut carbon then blows by so when you remove egr you see nothing, well start with these good luck.

Car sputterd and stalled while driving.


ECU is the engine computer and the EGR valve allows exhaust gas to recirculate back into the intake manifold at certain times and is usually vacuum controlled. EGR valves are replaced fairly often because of the high heat from the exhaust. Check for a loose or damaged vacuum hose (or if an electrically controlled valve, look for loose wires, or connector). ECU faults may or may not require replacement of the unit. Have you replaced the fuel filter?

I have a 2001 Ford Focus. The service engine light came on. The diagnosis was I need to repalce the EGR value. Where is it located and can I do this myself. Also how do you determine if it is a SOHC or...


Not sure what your diagnosis was but usually it is not the valve that goes bad. Its usually the DPFE sensor. Both these parts are easty to replace. The EGR valve looks like a flying saucer on top of the engine with a vacuum line going to it. Its most likely green line. The DPFE isnt far away from it. There are two lines going to it and an electrical connector.

Egr valve replacement


two bolts and a vacuum line will take the EGR valve out .. then when you have it out you can look down there where it came out and see if it needs cleaned or not .. Probably not.. The EGR valve sometimes goes bad and causes your car to stall at stop signs or when you just let off of it... holler if you need more Jerry
