Hi, you may have 2 separate problems here. 107 indicates the MAP sensor, and that may be also causing the 172 code. The other codes indicate the EGR valve position sensor, which is integral to the valve itself. I would test both of these before replacing (the EGR valve is about $150 and the MAP sensor about $60-70). First check the connectors on them for any corrosion or poor connection. The MAP sensor is mounted to the top of the intake manifold. The EGR valve is at the back of the engine near the brake booster. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

See Figures 1, 2 and 3 1998 chev.s-10 2.2 lt   codes # - jturcotte_1442.gif

Fig. Fig. 1: Typical Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) sensor wiring diagram (wire color, terminal identification/location may vary on certain models)

  1. Backprobe with a high impedance voltmeter at MAP sensor terminals A and C .
  2. With the key ON and engine off, the voltmeter reading should be approximately 5.0 volts.
  3. If the voltage is not as specified, either the wiring to the MAP sensor or the VCM may be faulty. Correct any wiring or VCM faults before continuing test.
  4. Backprobe with the high impedance voltmeter at MAP sensor terminals B and A .
  5. Verify that the sensor voltage is approximately 0.5 volts with the engine not running (at sea level).
  6. Record MAP sensor voltage with the key ON and engine off.
  7. Start the vehicle.
  8. Verify that the sensor voltage is greater than 1.5 volts (above the recorded reading) at idle.
  9. Verify that the sensor voltage increases to approximately 4.5. volts (above the recorded reading) at Wide Open Throttle (WOT).
  10. If the sensor voltage is as specified, the sensor is functioning properly.
  11. If the sensor voltage is not as specified, check the sensor and the sensor vacuum source for a leak or a restriction. If no leaks or restrictions are found, the sensor may be defective and should be replaced.

EGR replacement:

Linear EGR Valve

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.

Note the position of the EGR valve prior to removal. Do not rotate the valve 180?.
  1. Unplug the valve electrical connection..
  2. Unfasten the valve retainers, then remove the valve and the gasket.

To install:

  1. Clean all gasket residue from the gasket mating surfaces.
  2. Install a new gasket and the valve.
  3. Install the valve retainers.
  4. On 1998-99 2.2L models, tighten the retainers to 19 ft. lbs. (26 Nm).
  5. Attach the valve electrical connections and connect the negative battery cab1998 chev.s-10 2.2 lt codes # - jturcotte_1444.gifol>

107 is MAP sensor circuit low input. 172 is system adaptive fuel too rich. I would suggest you replace the MAP sensor. It is located on the intake manifold near the throttle body. Pretty simple. 2 screws, a vacuum hose, and an electrical connector.

My 2002 chev trailblazer bogs down with the gas pedal pressed to the floor and eventually shut off after it sits for approx 2 days in the garage. once i restart it it runs fine. had fuel pump in tank...

Start cheap, remove fuses #10 and #28 under the hood. Remove your throttle body and clean it (both sides) with a sensor safe spray like Seafoam. When clean, put the fuses back and and see how it does.

Peugeot 206 stalling, either cuts off or I floor the gas pedal

When you "floor the gas pedal" the computor goes into a bypass mode (emergency mode). This honestly sounds a lot like a problem I ran into a while back on a Dodge truck. Problem was a cracked intake manifold (plastic). Short version: vacuum leak.

My chrysler lhs jerks when i drive what could the problem be?

Fuel, air, fire. 3 components to create combustion. Which of the three are you lacking? Check Engine Light on?

Your statement is vague. Could be engine, transmission or communications between the two. Check the amperage output of your battery and check for any codes; permanent or temporary and post the results.

On my 1998 expedition my check enging light is on and its riding rough when I press the peddle to go it starts blinking but it does not do this every time but 9 times out of ten it does. Any reason for...

Possible Intermittent ignition coil failure!! very common on these vehicles. Typical issues from this is: Sputter/jerking when gas pedal is pressed, random stalls, poor gas mileage, power loss!! REPLACE all coils if this is the issue!!

turn your key to the on position ,push gas pedal completely to the floor three times in 5 seconds
leave the pedal up and wait 10 seconds the light will blink you done!

2000 mercury cougar hesitating/jerking

First, disconnect neg battery cable 10 minutes and reattach to clear codes.
Lean condition means it is not getting same fuel as other side of engine.
Since you had it scanned before, try Autozone to see if new results.
You might try a TPS switch which regulates spark and fuel feed. At lower speeds EGR starts to open-you should have code for a problem there.
