Re: mitsubishi canter truck
Egr stands for Exhaust Gas Recirculation.....it is a system that takes some of the exhaust gasses and recirculates it back into the intake to be re burnt, although this system is necessary for proper emission readings at your tail pipe.it will likely cause no problems with the driving of your vehicle.........the problem could be a faulty egr valve or it could be a problem in the plumbing (pipes and hoses) of the system.Your best bet is to take your vehicle to a trusted mechanics shop to have them inspect the egr system and replace the faulty parts. hope this helps.............Good luck!

1997 Mitsubishi Canter off timing, need assistance via timingdiagram, shop manual or instructions on timing ...
There are 2 lots of fuse boxes on cars, one in the engine bay and one normally by the drivers door or just under near the drivers knee... This is where the fuse will be and it should be marked as illum. or tail... Let me know how you go.
Check the code at advance auto parts, replace the PCV valve just in case. It is an inexpensive part, and if it is clogged will cause the engine to consume more fuel than normal. Also, check the EGR tube coming out of the EGR valve and going to the Intake Manifold. This clogs up with carbon, and is a very common problem that throws a code.
