    All of a sudden, on the way home from work, the MIL came on. I hooked up the ODB code reader when I got home and it said P0406 Exhaust Gas Recirculation Sensor A Circuit High. I reset the code but it came back in 5 seconds after I started the engine. I assume the EGR flat out broke.

    Would this be the same fix for a 2005 Pacifica Touring?. The light has come on and stayed on. Checked the code and it is showing as P0406

    I also have a similar problem with my Chrysler 300 3.5V Touring 2005.Is this a common problem with this type of cars?Would I be able to find the EGR valve at a local Auto Zone for sale?

Its on the passenger side on top behind the motor. its easier to take the black cover off the top of the motor. its a iron pipe running from the egr valve to the cover on top of the motor. disconnect it from the cover. its two bolts holding the egr valve on. unplug the plug thats holding it on and take those two bolts out and bring it out on the passenger side. take the iron pipe off the old egr valve and put it on the new one. no silicone needed. place it back in and bolt it down. its gone be a lil tricky gettin it back in but itll go. after its tighten down put the cover back on the engine. plug all of the sensors back up and make sure all hoses are hooked back in place. make sure u connect the iron pipe back to the cover and be careful with the seal inside the cover cause if u break it it will leak air like the problem i had its not bad as it sounds just take your time. if u see EP BAS when u get thru u probably left a sensor unplugged or an air leak. if that happens hit me back and ill tell u how to fix it

    I'm not sure if you still check this or not but I had a question. The black Cover on top of the motor, this is a 2006 by the way, is there a gasket or anything between the cover and the intake? A friend wanted me to change his EGR but while we were looking at it we wen't sure if there was a gasket he would need to buy for under the black cover. If anyone reads this please respond back to the thread, I really need to know. Thanks in advance!!

I own a chrysler 300 with abould 58,000 miles on it and the car would have a rough idle and would shake pretty violently when i drove it. The acceleration began to **** and i could barely drive the car... i found out after months of being told to replace the spark plugs, coil packs, etc...and that not working that finally it was decided that its the egr valve and other parts within the engine. The radio has also broken in the may...but thats the least of my problems. anyways the 7 year, 70,000 mile powertrain warranty covered all the mechanical problems except for the egr valve which is considered a "maintenance repair". hopefully this information is helpful to someone with the same car and problem. if your thinking about buying a chrysler 300...DONT!!!! they are beautiful looking but a F***ING nightmare piece of **** mechanically, i might just sell mine after the repairs are done... if the car is only 4 years old and only has 58,000 miles... then this same thing is going to happen again its a $1200 repair....and the next time it happens my powetrain warranty will be void! something to think about!...i have another car a cheapy that cost me exactly that what the repairs did and i get 35 mpg and dont have a car pament and it needs little to no repairs... it might not be as pretty but it works for me! haha peace out.

I have just replaced the EGR valve on my Chrysler 2006 300 v6 3.5 Liter.
I was a super B**tch to replace. Whatever is said in the Chilton manual is wrong because I had to take the engine cover off to replace this thing. Anyway, the reason i had to replace it was because the Check engine light was on and I went to autozone and the codes said it was the EGR valve. I bought one for $50 and was on my way.

One thing you have to do when you replace this is to go to the dealer and buy the gasket for the upper EGR tube. You can't replace the EGR valve without buying this gasket. It's a tiny rubber piece and runs $10 at the dealer.

So to replace the EGR valve you have to take the engine cover off.
The engine cover and the EGR valve uses 8mm and 10mm and for the bolts on the passenger side of the engine cover, 15mm sockets. As well as a regular small adjustable wrench for the hard to reach bolt near the front of the car.

After replacing the EGR valve, you have to really make sure the bolts are really tight or else the EGR upper pipe will be a little loose and when you insert it into the hole in the engine cover, it will not go in all the way. It will strip the gasket and you will end up having to buy another one. As well, you will get an error light that looks like a lightening bolt between two parentheses.

I had this happen because the upper egr tube did not fit tightly into the engine hole.

If you can move the upper EGR tube back and forth, you have not tightened the 8mm bolts tight enough. The upper EGR tube should not be able to move. When you are putting the engine cover back on, you have to work it so the EGR tube fits into the hole i the engine cover as well as the two places on the drivers side. It's really hard to work it, but you gotta do it.

Make sure the upper EGR tube is ALL the way flush inside the engine hole or else you will get the error light (the lightning bolt as I explained above).

You have to tighten the engine bolts (10mm) tight to get the fit on the engine cover correctly and to have all the other engine bolts to line up. Start with the ones on the passenger side first and then the others will align once you tighten those. But first you have to put the engine cover thru the two places by the air filter housing (I think thats what it is).

Anyway, my main point in this rambling is that if you do not tighten the 8mm bolts on the EGR valve to the upper EGR tube really tight so that the tube doesnt move, you will get the other error and think you have messed up.

If anyone has any questions, i can be more clear, or post pictures.
I hope this helps somebody. cuz i couldn't find much help out there.

Peace.

Lisa_jackson,

I did everything suggested but when I put it back together I still have the same codes along with the EP BAS light on. I'm assuming I have an air leak. You said to hit you back if this occurs, so hopefully you can walk me through that.

Thanks!

Is it a hard job to replace the egr vavle on a 2005 chrysler 300 3.5 engine


the egr valve can be changed from below but the left bolt must be done blindly by feel, (use a small mirror,) undue the 2 bolts and pull it out from the intake, careful to make sure the gasket on the end of the tube comes with it;
the 2 bolts that hold the egr on also has a metal gasket;
the hardest thing is to disconnect the electrical plug from below that connects the egr valve, - do not do this if you have no mech experience;

Where is the EGR valve located on a 2005 chrysler 300 touring. It comes with one gasket, do I need any others? Do I need to disconnect battery before replacing? Is there a gasket sealer I need to put on?


I saw on another forum...that it is on the rear of the motor on the passenger side. It also stated that it is easy to replace. I haven't looked yet.
