EGR question on 1995 maxima 3.0l v-6

I have a 95 maxima that had a feul injector go completely bad and pump fuel constantly into the cylinder. All is well and the car runs great after the fix but my check engine light is on the the code is for the egr. I replaced the valve but the code is still present. I was told by a mechanic that I have to clean the egr channel. What is that and where is it? Am I gonna have to pull the manifold off again? Thanks!

You don't have to pull off the intake manifold. take the egr off and clean the port is all. then the code has to be cleared.the egr is on the right side of intake(closest to the firewall. you can use a small wire brush or old toothbrush to do this. also check the wires and plug and if you egr valve has a vaccum line make sure it's not plugged loose or missing. use a lil bit of carb cleaner to clean port. replace egr and clear the code a scan tool will clear this code. please rate this thanks

Would the inline feul pump in the feul tank cause the motor to run to rich .if you put your foot down the power drops out .vy commodore station wagon.done 320000 kms.

No what you are describing is lack of air through the intake.
Rich means lack of air or too much fuel. Fuel pressure remains constant and drops when the accelerator is pressed down if the pump is bad, the fuel filter is plugged or there is an injector problem or a fuel pressure regulator issue (if one is present) and this results in lean running engines.

I hav a 95 maxima and my bro drove it till it ran out of gas.Ever since then the engine light has come on and it takes alot for it to turn over when starting. Sometimes the battery dies before itll start.I...

Replace your fuel pump. When you run a vehicle completely out of fuel, you will pull all the sediment off the bottom of the tank, and this will indeed clog fuel injectors, but first it will clog your fuel filter. After replacing your fuel filter, purchase a high-octane fuel injector cleaner, and add it to your fuel tank as specified on the side of the fuel injector cleaner bottle specifies.

How do i access to the fuel pump in my 2002 lincoln ls v6? can the fuel pump cause to much fuel into the combustion chamber if all the censors are working??

No only a defective injector van do this. if the injector is defective the plug on thet clyinder will be black. this will help you define which cylinder is bad and replace the fuel injector on that cylinder. But most likey it is a defective EGR valve casueing your problem.

The engine has to much gas running into it and is causing it to stall when put in idle and runs rough.

Seems that the fuel pressure regulator is bad, place a vise on the fuel return hose and if the car runs well replace the pressure regulator.

1987 cressida missing

Start with testing the injectors for pulse. Get a NOID light they sell the at almost any auto parts store remove in get plug from injector and plug the noid light into plug look for constant steady (pulse)lighting of noid light. Check all six injector on your strait 6. If all is good remove parke plug wire on at a time from cap and look for increased shaking and less when it replaced(Make sure to use wire puller with rubber insulation to avoid being zapped by spark from coil) Note cylinder with no difference or change when wire is removed. Those would be the problem cylinders. Then get a compression guage and check all cylinders for compression by removing spark plugs and attaching guage to each cylinders, make a not of each cylinder's reading. NOTE THEY SHOULD NOT BE MORE THAN 10 PSI difference in cylinders. Make note of low compression cylinders if any. If compression is good all around spark plugs are good, good ignition wires and you have good pulse pattern from you noid light. The only other problem is BAD INJECTORS and those would be the ones that didn't change when you took off the wires. I have work on these old cressida alot my self. Good Luck contact me if you need more help and if I solve your problem leave me a FIX-YA comment.
