try unhooking the battery for 1 or 2 min then let sit for 8hrs start turn on all heat front and back run at highway speed for about 10min then city run for 10min let idle 10 min this will reset the comp and codes should go away
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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
