Question about 2006 Chrysler Town & Country

1 Answer

We just replaced the EGR valve on our Chrysler Town and Country. After we got the new one on we realized that the female connector that connects to the solenoid has a prong stuck in it from the old EGR valve. Does anyone know how to get it out>

If you cannot pull it out with pliers or tweezers, then you will probaby have to replace the terminal in the female connector. Picking at it with a pick may help. but will most likely damage the connector. Whatever you do, be careful not to damage the connector shell. These can be very hard to come by. Pins with wire attached (pigtails) can be purchaced from the dealer. They usually do not have the entire connector shell available, but you can ask. With the pigtail, you would simply cut the wire and replace the connector pin in the connector. If they have the connector shell with wires, you would cut all the wires and splice a whole new connector shell onto the vehicle wiring harness.

Why does my 1997 chrysler town and country idles high?


Check the iac idle air control valve or the egr valve which doesnt always need replacing just a simple carb cleaning. If you clean the egr valve replace the o2s it is surely next to go. There can be 2 one on the manifold amd n the other by the cat.

Egr valve location on the motor for replacement


Unplug the connector and vacuum line. Then take out the two bolts. Clean the old gasket off and slap in the new one. In an hour you'll be done and down the road.
