The 2006 silverado does have an EGR valve. I took mine to the shop and that's what is wrong with it.

The 2006 Silverado doesn't have EGR. They did away with it in '03 I believe.

Po401 ive cleaned the egr & replaced the egr but i keep getting this code??


depending on your model, there may be a solenoid valve that turns the vacuum to the egr valve on. If the solenoid fails, the egr valve will not open. Follow the vacuum line on the egr valve--does it go to a solenoid valve? If yes, apply 12 volts directly to the solenoid blades to see if it clicks open. If it doesn't click, replace the solenoid.

I just bought my blazer and it has this code p1404 its a 1999 two door v6


Hi,
The code is for the EGR Valve (exhaust gas recirculation valve). I am assuming that the engine in the vehicle is a 4.3L Possibly vortek engine. This is actually a common problem. More than likely you have a piece of carbon debris stuck in the EGR Valve holding the pintle open on the bottom of the valve. The EGR location is in front of the intake manifold. It is a cylindrical looking part with some wires connected to it. The body of the valve is black and the base of the valve is silver. It is bolted on by two 10MM bolts. Remove the valve and clean it out with carb/choke cleaner this should solve your problem. Any other question please don't hesitate to ask.

When should fuel inductor/throttle body service be done? When should PCV valve be replaced? When should EGR valve be replaced?


The EGR Valve--is replaced when it fails

The Throttle Body-does not need expensive services,
you can spray the throttle plate,but don't listen to the all
the pitches at the chain stores

The PCV-I never replace them

In nearly 50 years, I only clean them every 3 years
Look at one.pretty simple device

How do i tell if my egr valve needs to be cleaned or replaced? I have a 2006 Silverado LT 2500 HD 4X4 6.6 LTR. Diesel. Chevrolet makes two different model engines. LLY and LBZ i think, can you tell me...


The EGR valve recirculates unburned Exhaust gasses to your Intake in order to increase Fuel Efficiency and lessen Emissions. What are the codes on your truck? The check engine light comes on when a sensor is out of range, or failing, and a code is stored. Autozone, etc. can check your code for free.

To clean the EGR valve


It's PITA, the EGR valve is located on the back side of engine (Firewall side) You might want to try using Deep Creep from Seafoam to get your upper intake manifold and EGR valve cleaned without removing it. Here is a link to the Seafoam products and it's worth a try first before you go through the pain of removing the EGR valve on your Ventura.
Thank you for using fixya and good luck

You cannot clean them purchase a new one and pull the old one out of the valve cover, and disconnect the hose that runs to it. install the hose on to the new egr with a new worm clamp and push the other end into the valve cover. should take about 10 minutes.

Hey chevy s/10 2.2 code po405 egr any fixs


You have two options to fix this error code. One, obviously, you can replace the EGR valve. If you do this, just reset the codes and you should be good to go. Two, you can remove the EGR valve and clean the carbon build up out of it. You can do this with throttle body cleaner and just make sure to let it dry out before you put it back on. You need to make sure that the valve (diaphram) is moving freely after you clean it. If it isn't, you are going to need to replace the EGR valve. Let me know if you have any further questions. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

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
