Question about 1987 Dodge Ram Wagon B250
My 1987 Dodge B150 van with 5.2L engine is giving me a "check EGR" light on the dash. All runs well EXCEPT just after startup in cool temps. The engine will falter a bit, RPMS slow but as soon as the engine coolant temp gauge moves, all is well again. Is the EGR valve controlling exhaust by-pass thru the intake manifold on this set up... and therefore if it's not working right giving me this problem?? When the engine is warm, no problems at all, runs fine. What's the best way to "check" the EGR valve?? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. Bill Alaska replaced 9v battery but cannot find reset switch
Hello, if you have a vacuum pull off choke, you can try replacing your thermal vacuum valve on the intake manifold, it fits with the slow rpm..s at cold start!! Good luck, cheap repair if it works for ya. marty
