  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the air cleaner and intake hoses as required.
  3. If necessary, detach the EGR temperature sensor connector.
  4. Tag and disconnect the vacuum hose from the EGR valve.
  5. Remove the mounting bolts and the EGR valve from the engine.
  6. Clean the mating surfaces on the valve and the engine. Make sure to remove all gasket material.
  7. Inspect the valve for a sticking plunger, caused by excess carbon deposits. If such a condition exists, clean with appropriate solvent so valve seats correctly.
To install:
  1. Install EGR valve with a new gasket in place.
  2. Install the mounting bolts and tighten as follows:
  3. 1.5L, 1.6L, and 1.8L engines—7–10 ft. lbs. (10—15 Nm)
  4. 2.0L engines—10–15 ft. lbs. (15—22 Nm)
  5. 2.4L and 3.5L engines—16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm)
  6. 3.0L engines—8 ft. lbs. (11 Nm)
  7. Connect the vacuum hose to the EGR valve.
  8. If detached, attach the EGR temperature sensor.
  9. Install the air cleaner and air intake hoses as required.
  10. Connect the negative battery cable.

SOURCE: Mirage Mitsubishi 2000 1.8L Rough Miss when Idle

Might want to look for vacuum leaks. Most misfires that go away with gas are caused by manifold vacuum leaks. The cat code can also be caused by the vac leak. There are different methods to find them and not real easy-but one way is to get a can of carb cleaner spray and spritz around intake areas. When the carb cleaner finds the leak--the car will run good for just and instant. Could be a rubber line or a manifold gasket. Hope it helped. Thanks

I HAVE A MITSUBISHI MIRAGE 2000, IT HAS LIT THE CHECK ENGINE AND I TRY TO SEEK FOR THE PROBLEM, IT GIVES ME THE P0400 CODE, HOW CAN I FIX IT??


po400 is egr flow malfunction-- to fix, remove egr and clean the port where it sits, its probably full of carbon. then clean egr as much as you can. and check the wires to it. if above does not cure problem, replace egr valve. have a good day !

How much to fix the P0401 egr problem in a 2001 mitsubishi mirage LS with over 100k miles on it?


A code P0401 most likely means one or more of the following has happened:
- The DPFE (differential pressure feedback EGR) sensor is faulty and needs to be replaced
- There is a blockage in the EGR (tube), most likely carbon buildup
- The EGR valve is faulty
- The EGR valve may not be opening due to a lack of vaccuum

Possible Solutions: In fixing this code, it is quite common for people to just replace the EGR valve only to have the OBD code return. The EGR valve is not always the culprit.
- Use a vacuum pump and pull the EGR valve open while monitoring engine RPM's & DPFE voltage. There should be a noticable difference in RPM's with the EGR open
- Clean out the EGR valve and/or tubing to remove deposits
- Check the voltage at the DPFE, compare to specified values (refer to a repair manual for your specific model)
- Replace the DPFE sensor (with a good quality / OEM one)
- Replace the EGR valve


Keep us updated.

How many different problems can the p0401 code be on a 2001 mitsubishi mirage 1.8 litre


In short,it's all cause by carbon built up.

EGR valve can fail after 100,000 miles.

===
Check for

vacuum leaks on intake manifold,

the air tube between the air filter.

intake manifold vacuum hose.

===
clean throttle plate with Berryman carburator cleaner

SEE sample picture HERE
===

Also remove carbon built up behind the EGR valve and the EGR passage tube.

===

Vacuum leak WILL offset the intended 14.7 to 1 air fuel ratio.

More un-metered air (leaks) will lean out the fuel mixture.

Use small amount of Berryman carb clearer at potential air leak area will help you identify trouble spot.

At idle,just spray and listen for the RPM surge.

The in-rush of carb clearer will increase the RPM on the motor.

Record the problem spot(s) and address it later.

===

EGR carbon built up require 2+ hours to clean from start to finish.

You will need a new EGR base gasket before your start.

Locate and remove the EGR valve after the vehicle is cool down.

Carefully record the connector and vacuum line (for older vehicle) location by drawing an easily to follow diagram.

Remove the EGR valve.

Inspect the location of the carbon built-up inside the valve and the EGR passage tube.

SOAK these areas with WD-40 spary.

You will need a small screwdriver,cloth hanger and lot of newspaper and time to get this cleaning done right.

RE-SOAK the carbon and let it sit for over-night will also help.

One the last round,pass a shop vacuum of the EGR valve and the passage pipe.

Install the new EGR gasket and connectors.

Allow the vehicle to warm up outdoor to burn up any remaining WD-40.


Take it for a test drive.
