I have a '95 Ford Thunderbird with CEL throwing code P1407 Exhaust Gas Recirc No Flow detected. Is this a do it yourself fix and if so where is this located on the car? Any help is appreciated, thank you.
I don not remember the ecxact number of parts, however here goes. Takes about an hour.Remove plastic air management(1 bolt, 2 large hose clamps and 2 approx 1 inch hoses). Disconnect the battery terminals. Remove "U shaped vacuum hose from intake(alluminum about 4" in diameter, and elbow shaped). remove vacuum lines from EGR, and the plastic purge solenoid(has two port next to eachother. remove all electronic connection from the throttle positioning sensor, and the components between the intake and the firewall. Remove Cruise Control, and throttle cable. Remove intake(the elbow shaped part) four bolts at the base of it. I believe they are 8mm. Remove two bolts from the EGR valve(kind of a pain to get to) It is on the top of the block close to the fire wall next to the intake(elbow shaped 4 inch tube with TPS) I believe that they are 10mm. space back EGR 1/4 inch with smooth plastic shims to not damage seal, or replace seal. With everything apart clean all that soot and gunk out of that channel directly underneath intake(elbow) and port between that and the EGR. Make sure and take your time to clean this thoroughly. Put back together. The Electrical connectors only goon one way, however pay clos attention to those and the vacuum lines that they are all put back on in the correct places.
