Code#P0404


Could be, but the problem is probably with the connector or wiring back to the BCM.

1999 mercury sable engine code p1744,p0401. Failed e check. EGR looks new, replaced egr solenoid then cleared codes. what more can i do about the p0401 code and the p1744 code Thanks


for p0401:
In fixing this code, it is quite common for people to just replace the EGR valve only to have the OBD code return. The EGR valve is not always the culprit.
Use a vacuum pump and pull the EGR valve open while monitoring engine RPM's & DPFE voltage. There should be a noticable difference in RPM's with the EGR open.
Clean out the EGR valve and/or tubing to remove deposits.
Check the voltage at the DPFE, compare to specified values (refer to a repair manual for your specific model).
Replace the DPFE sensor (with a good quality / OEM one).
Replace the EGR valve.

Insufficient egr flow, already replaced egr valve and purge valve canister


I too replaced the egr valve and was discouraged that the check engine light came back on with the same "insufficient flow" code. I took it to my mechanic to put it on the monster diagnostic machine. It said "check all vacuum line, and or map sensor". After looking real close we found a melted vacuum tube, and a cracked vacuum angle connector. Replaced both vacuum pieces, reset the codes, and good to go. If that fails than the next thing is the map sensor, that tells the EGR valve what to do.

Egr code still present after changing solinoid and checking valve


Have you had the code reset using an OBD 1 scan tool? It must be reset as the code remains in the computer.

WONT PASS INSPECTION ... 2ND SYSTEM ON EGRSYSTEM FAILED is that my egr vavle?


sounds like the solinoid but if the egr has a wiring clip on top of it its 1 piece if u price it prob 200 bucks or more i would first unbolt it and clean the valve with carb cleaner while pushing valve back and forth w/ screw driver then put back and drive to turn off light or disconnect batt to reset code then get it inspected cause if that works may not last but at least u know the problem
