I have a 2000 Chrysler Cirrus. Check engine light came on and it has been just losing power.


Yes, the misses are cutting your power in half. The cylinders in the back half of the engine are not firing. The problem must be diagnosed to estimate repair costs. Possible causes are
1. Injector wiring harness cut or disconnected.
2. Major intake manifold gasket leak.
3. Camshaft slipped timing.

I have listed these in order of cost to repair, so have someone check for these conditions in the order above.

remove the EGR valve and clean the carbon from the port it is connected to, they are known to get clogged up, you may also have a bad egr valve.

Hi, My engine light came on so I took it to AutoZone who told me it was the EGR hose so I had that replaced 2 weeks ago. Yesterday, the light came back on so back to AutoZone I went this morning. It is...


Usually this P0456 code is caused by an incorrect or faulty gas cap. Filling the fuel tank with the engine running could conceivable cause this code as well or if the cap wasn't properly tightened. Any of the following could also be the cause:
  • A small leak in any of the EVAP hoses or fuel tank hoses
  • A small leak in the purge valve or vent valve
  • The EVAP Canister may be leaking

No problems with EGR valves/system on this model car. Its located under the throttle body. Your valve is electronically controled by the ECM/Computer. Pretty bullet proof setup. What is the actual code number that autozone gave you?? Let me know the code number and will take it from there.

2000 Honda Accord EGR Valve Error P0401


Jason,
-after you change the part you have to reset/clear the code

-this can be done by either:
(1) using the OBD2 code reader that Autozone used OR since option 2 (below) is very quick
(2) disconnecting the battery for about 30 seconds (this will delete all codes/radio presets/etc) but it will also clear the 'check engine' code
-this is what I do AFTER i write down my radio station presets :)

-hopefully the new EGR valve resolves your issue after you CLEAR the code
...but that code just means a an insufficient amount of Exhaust Gas recirculation (pressure difference) used to keep the emissions in check
-if it comes back, then there are a few other fixes to try also

-let me know if you need further assistance
-please remember to rate me `fix-ya`if it works
thanks

Please Help 97 Chrysler Cirrus Stalling out


Could be alot of things. If it runs good when cold and gets worse when warm, at low RPM, it may be the EGR valve. May just need cleaning. A plugged fuel filter won't cause the light to come on, but it will cause a lean condition, which will. Possibly a bad crank sensor, they have been known to have trouble at the connection, check it to make sure it's clean and tight. it's on the pass side, at the rear, were the motor & trans bolt up. first things to do are to make sure the battery connections are clean and tight. Then replace the filter..Please click on this link its the service manual ,,,
