1998 plymouth breeze: Engine light on. Code reads exhaust gas recirculation flow insufficient detected. Code is P0401. What does this mean?
EGR system failure. The negative battery cable must be removed first. The EGR is the system under the hood, between the fuse box and the block. The TCM Looks kind of like a radiator, and needs to be removed to access the EGR valve. It has two vaccumn hoses connecting it to the vaccuum system, make sure you keep track of where they connect to. Loosena nd removed the bolts holding the EGR, and gently remove the EGR valve.
Remove the old gasket and replace with a new one, install the new EGR and finger tighten the bolts. Make sure the vaccuum hoses are placed back on (label them if needed), once you have ensure that you have everything installed properly, then tighten the bolts on the EGR to 200 ft. lbs. Re-install the TCM and connectors, reconnect teh battery and you should be good to go.
