I came across a couple of toyota service bulletins addressing these issues (as I am also suffering from rough idling and persistent check engine light(that sometimes blinks)):

I have a 1999 Toyota Camry V6 with 34,000 miles and I am finding that all information about this being such a good car is not true. After reading some of the problems listed just on this
posting I am considering getting rid of this car. When I first bought this car it evidentially was out of alignment and I ended up buying new tires, the original tires were worn to the metal.
And it happened again and had to buy new tires again.

Several months ago, I took my car in for regular oil check and etc. They found some kind of fluid had been leaking and that oil change cost me $2,000..00. A month later the car would not start, called the Toyota people and I had to get the car to them. They said it needed a new battery. So $154.00 later by about two weeks, went to start the car and it would not start,. then it started. One night this week coming out of a restaurant from having dinner went to start the car and it made the most awful noise and rattling, I could not turn the car off. Thank goodness for two wonderful gentlemen who stopped and could not figure what was going on either. Could not get the battery cable ? off and the car started smoking,,,,,, Had to have the car towed to my house and then to the Toyota garage next day. And the final diagnosis from the serviceman was that he started the car 50 times and it always started..........I mentioned several people said it was probably the ignation or the starter motor? He said they could not do anything unless the car wouldn't start? Needless to say, I said my Goodbye to that
dealership and now I still have a car that I cannot trust to take me anywhere. I honestly have to say that this Toyota is a Lemon.

03 honda civic 1.7L p0401 EGR code.


In fixing this code, it is quite common for people to just replace the EGR valve only to have the OBD code return. The EGR valve is not always the culprit. Use a vacuum pump and pull the EGR valve open while monitoring engine RPM's & DPFE voltage. There should be a noticable difference in RPM's with the EGR open Clean out the EGR valve and/or tubing to remove deposits Check the voltage at the DPFE, compare to specified values (refer to a repair manual for your specific model) Replace the DPFE sensor (with a good quality / OEM one)

I am not surprized. The chances that replacing an EGR valve will fix a code P0401 on ANY Ford vehicle is about 1/2 of 1 percent. You most likely either have clogged up EGR ports in your intake manifold, or you have a defective Delta Pressure Feedback EGR (DPFE) sensor.

To find out which it is, apply vacuum to the EGR valve vacuum port with the engine idling. The engine should stumble and/or stall. If it does not, your ports are clogged. If it does, the most likely cause of your problem is the DPFE sensor. However, the EGR vacuum control solenoid could also be the cause.
You cannot properly test the EGR vacuum control solenoid without the proper equipment, but you can check to make sure that there is manifold vacuum going into one side of the solenoid and you can check to make sure that there are no breaks or leaks in the line that runs between the solenoid and the valve. If you find any of these, repair as necessary. If you do not find a problem with the vacuum lines, then you can take a "guess" and replace the DPFE. If this does not work, then you can "guess" again and replace the solenoid. If it still does nort work, then you probably have a bad electrical circuit to the solenoid (once again, requiring the proper equipment to diagnose).

I had a similar problem with code PO401
The solution was to loosen up the throttle cable a bit.
Since the TPS value has to be at 0.0% at idle.

1997 volvo 960, check engine light on with P0401. These motronic 4.4 do not have EGR, p0401 mean insufficient EGR flow. How do you fix this if there is no EGR?


A code P0401 most likely means one or more of the following has happened:
* The DPFE (differential pressure feedback EGR) sensor is faulty and needs to be replaced
* There is a blockage in the EGR (tube), most likely carbon buildup
* The EGR valve is faulty
* The EGR valve may not be opening due to a lack of vaccuum

In fixing this code, it is quite common for people to just replace the EGR valve only to have the OBD code return. The EGR valve is not always the culprit.
* Use a vacuum pump and pull the EGR valve open while monitoring engine RPM's & DPFE voltage. There should be a noticable difference in RPM's with the EGR open
* Clean out the EGR valve and/or tubing to remove deposits
* Check the voltage at the DPFE, compare to specified values (refer to a repair manual for your specific model)
* Replace the DPFE sensor (with a good quality / OEM one)
* Replace the EGR valve

Check it and send us your advance.

How to replace EGR valve on 2000 camry V6?


If you have a P0401 code from a CEL, the first thing is to check the EGR vacuum modulator. It is a little well usually next to the EGR. Pop the cap off and dust the little sponge inside. Sometimes this gets stuffed up with carbon particles and causes recirculation problems. You should clean the tubes hooked to it while you are there. Reset the code and see if the light comes back.

Replacing the EGR is not a tidy job. It is an expensive part to replace and you will disconnect the three hoses and dismantle it from engine by two nuts. Save it for the later if the previous trick fails to work.
