It could simply be that the EGR valve is clogged. You could try doing a Seafoam treatment on the vacuum system to see if that can free up the EGR (you can get the Seafoam at AutoZone or any other parts store, and it's cheap). You'd need to find a vacuum line you can easily remove, and feel suction into the engine from. Pour some Seafoam into a bowl (maybe 1/3 of the bottle), and use a small piece of vinyl hose to get it into the engine. Put the hose into the vacuum nipple, seal around it with tape, and dip the other end into the bowl. Rev the engine as needed to allow the engine to **** up the fluid. You may need to rev it up during the first couple minutes following the ingestion of the Seafoam - the car will blow black smoke out of the tailpipes and may stumble and run rough. This will let up as the engine burns off the excess carbon inside, and afterward your car should run quite a bit better. Put the vacuum line back on and you're good to go.

I have a Ford F-150 xlt 4.6 with a p0401 code.

code p 0401 refers to exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system---insufficient flow detected==== causes ---hose leak/blockage, basic setting not carried our (if applicable)---wiring---EGR valve ---EGR solenoid ---ECM
when you have done everything make sure that you use a scan tool to reset the ECM
Items that you haven't mentioned are wiring and substituting the ecm with a known operational one
bad wiring and connections / ground , broken in side the insulation may cause the problem as well

1999 V6 ford tarus turn over willl not start theft light blinks fast

Fast blink usually indicates a burned out bulb. Need to check for fuel pressure . If there is no fuel pressure could be pump., relay , fuse , wiring . Check to see if you have spark. You can use a spark plug as a tester . Pull the coil wire from the distributer insert the plug in the wire ang ground the side of the plug to the engine . Get someone to turn over the engine . You should see a bluish white spark . If not there is a problem with the ignition system .It might be easier to use one of the spark plug wires rather than the coil wire for this.
Do a vacume test . Need a vacume gauge for this. Conect it to a major vacume source on the engine and read the scale. EGR valves are a a major problem for no vacume if they stick open. If all those things are ok check compression be taking all plugs out and screwing a compression gauge into each plug hole , turn engine over and record the pressure. All cylds should be close to the same . Most gauges have indicaters as to what is to low or fair etc. If the engine light was on check for codes because some sensors can cause a no start .

Engine check light, code 401 low egr vacum egr

The EGR and the lift sensor may look perfect from the outside but the under side of the EGR valve and the EGR passage (small tube) are the REAL WORKING parts.

The carbon inside the EGR passage tube and the underside of the EGR valve must to clean out.

Make sure you has a NEW EGR gasket before you start the job.

It's a 2-3 hours job.

If you do not clean the EGR passage tube the Nox emission will get higher (check you past emission reports).

I need a vacume line diagram for a 1995 gmc safari. I have a trouble code 32 for EGR i replaced it and still have the problem. I used to get 20 mile to the gallon now it 10 miles.

you might have to put a different egr valve because sometimes the auto parts store will give you a different one same thing happen to me when i replaced mine and it didn't work I end up buying another one and it worked after I replace it make sure that when you take it out you spray carbutetor cleaner thru the coumbustion holes some times there is carbon build up in there and will make your egr valve malfuntion . good luck.

I have a 1998 Ford Explorer and I can't get the P0171 or P0174 trouble codes out I've replaced all 4 o2 sensors mass airflow sensor DPFE sensor plugs Sea Foam throtle position sensor checked for vacume...

You missed two spots.

EGR air passage tube


EGR base gasket

The air passage tube get clogged with carbon just like the base of the EGR valve.

It's ten time worst!!!

Get a full bottle of SeaFoam,WD-40 and a snake/wire to clear out this passage.

A home vacuum clean will help speed up the job.

DO NOT forget to get a new EGR base gasket.

Good luck

On the intake close to the EGR there is a solonoid that has wires and vac lines going to it. Make sure the wires are connected and not shorted.

2000 mazda 626 engine light is on took it to the dealer found an egr valve problem they "fix" it light went on again took it back they check it found that the manifold was bad "fix" it...

do you see if the manifold was cracked? usually the problem is not just the egr valve it has a modulator it is either electronic or vacum controlled, now the right way to check or the first thing to do is if there is vacum at the valve and from there check to see if there is vacum at the egr valve only wheren you rev the engine aroun 2000 to 2500 rpm , but i suggest you not to rev the engine at this rate too long if the valve opens thne the next thing to do is remove the valve and makd sure that the egr port is not clogged up with carbon if it is plugged up you can just knock them off using a small screw driver or such and clean the passage with a wire brush and put the valve back always make sure that you put it back using a new egr valve gasket.

regarding the noise make sure that all other tubing that go from the exhaust manifold is not broken it is not just the muffler that is involved in the exhaust sys that keeps the noise down!!!

97 Dodge Ram 1500 Club Cab w/n turn over

Common problem with Dodge Rams. Nobody has the right parts (dealer only) the right part numbers, or the right diagrams or component lists or locations.
The 5.9 L most likely has no EGR valve, as mine does not. It does however have an Idle Air Control Valve located at the back bottom of the throttle body, which if removed, will show carbon buildup, preventing proper fuel/air mix.
You also may have a vacum leak at one or more vacum hoses on the intake manifold, a leak at the vacum ball that stores vacum for working the vent controls when the engine is off. It looks like a big black ball, and has a vacum line going from the top of the intake to the ball, maybe located behind the RH pass headlight. The rubber hoses dry oput, crack, and rot after a few years due to OZONE exposure from the air. Go ot and buy 6 or 8 feet od 3/32 rubber vacum hose, and replace everything that is suspect. Look for cracked Ts. Dont forget to check the larger vacum hoses that go to the charcoal canister and fuel tank vent valves. The rubber elbows have a tendency to pop off the charcoal canister connectors on a hot day if you overfill the gas tank, and the rubber elbows are old and stretched out.
God Luck.
