2000 pontiac montana reads a code 405, engine dies when i am slowing down coming to a stop and when sitting still if it dosent die it overheats,shifts really hard whats wrong


Sounds like EGR Valve (Exhuast Gas Recirculation Valve) is sticking in the open position allowing exhuast gas into the intake manifold to soon which at idle will cause the engine to either run real rough or to stall out.Some EGR valves can be taken off and clean the carbon out of it or you can replace it.

Engine light is on, flashes when driving above 100 Km


stop by local parts store (Autozone,Advance, etc) and have them do a free fault code test. They can print out a list of faults and clear the codes

Hello Need help on a 2004 Ford Explorer. Having problems with Ford explorer rough ideal & missing. Changed plugs & wiring. Used Gas treatment. Change fuel filter & air filter also.


The computer should have coded a problem. If it did not code it is usually a vacuum or compression problem. With the motor running use a spray bottle of water and go along the seams of the intake manifold, Brake booster, EGR valve, and anything that has a vacuum line and spray them.

If you have a vacuum leak the water will be drawn in and the idle will be affected. That would be the gasket or part to replace. Sometimes on 4.6 SOHC engines the area under the Airhorn clogs the intake ports for the EGR. The groove under the gasket needs a cleaning.

Autozone and Oreillys will scan your Ford free. There may be a problem with the diagnostic system in your vehicle and at least you would be informed.
