Take off your EGR valve and clean it out with carb cleaner also
grease tyhe little screw thing in it,,, u will c what i mean if u take it apart. carbon builds up in the chamber. it is located at the back left side of your engine and is a bit of a pain to take off. this should save u the cost except for the cleaner and labor. i had the same problem cheapest i found was 90$ on ebay.

Do you have an odd smell in the interior compartment? This could be due to the egr being damaged from debris from the road. Hire a professional to do it or go to a car parts store and get the motors repair manual or similar.

Erase the code and see if it returns. If it does, replace the valve. What engine do you have? If it is a 3.4 it should be right on top. One plug and two bolts.

you can easily replace it yourself for 50. it just unbolts and you bolt the new one on. You might have to remove a couple of things but nothing too hard,

How do I clean egr valve on 2009 equinox


Um an egr valve isn't a part that your can just clean and it will fix your check engine light issues. You can remove it and if you see carbon buildup you remove it but more than likely it needs to be replaced. There are some new fuel additives that improve emissions and clean catalytic converters maybe these additives also clean the egr valve. Hope this helps good luck

Code p0405


You need to diagnose the EGR System
Not replace parts in hope of getting it right
Codes only indicate an Emissions Malfunction
or Fault, thus the code
Codes & trouble charts are used to then component test
Google the code & study the problem
There are many EGR Codes--- study yours ,as it pertains
to your vehicle & engine package

    REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

    PFE/DPFE Sensor
    This component is found on all engines, and is also referred to as the backpressure transducer.
    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    2. Detach and label the wiring harness connector from the PFE/DPFE sensor.
    3. Disconnect all of the hoses from the sensor.
    4. Remove the mounting nuts, then separate the sensor from the mounting bracket.
    5. If necessary, remove the EVR solenoid and the PFE/DPFE mounting bracket from the upper intake manifold.
    To install:
    1. If removed, install the EVR solenoid and mounting bracket onto the upper intake manifold.
    2. If applicable, install the EGR tube heat shield.
    3. Position the PFE/DPFE sensor on the mounting bracket, then install and tighten the mounting nuts until snug.
    4. Attach all necessary hoses and wiring to the sensor.
    5. Connect the negative battery cable.

    EGR Vacuum Regulator (EVR) Solenoid
    The EVR solenoid is mounted either on the same bracket as the PFE/DPFE sensor, attached to the upper intake manifold, or near the EGR valve on its own bracket.
    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    2. Label and detach the wiring harness connector from the EVR solenoid.
    3. Detach the main emission vacuum control connector from the solenoid.

    Engine light comes on so they scan it and they told me egr valvue


    The problem is that your EGR valve needs replaced. What these do is they allow a precise quantity of exhaust back into the intake manifold; Provides a great help for an efficient combustion process and improved engine performance, when thes go bad your perfomance drops off and it does not run as clean.
    The EGR valve, or Exhaust Gas Recirculation valve, is a vacuum-controlled valve which allows exhaust back into the intake manifold in controlled amounts. The EGR valve can clog and get contaminated over time by carbon buildup, at which point it will require replacement. A malfunctioning valve can cause the engine exhaust pressure to drop and send engine warnings to the computer. It can also cause engine back pressure to drop, reducing gas mileage and engine
    This is for a dodge ram, as I have no idea what car you have but this is a general tip.
  • Locate the EGR valve in the engine bay. The year and make of the Dodge vehicle determine where the valve is located. This is on the front of the engine block, next to the timing belt in model-year 2005 and newer trucks. In older vehicles you will typically find the valve behind the engine, near the firewall.

  • Unclip the exhaust tube from the side of the valve. You can do this by hand. Shift the tube from side to side until it slides off.Use a flat-head screwdriver to remove the EGR valve from the exhaust tube. There is a screw on each side of the tube.

    Disconnect the harness from the EGR valve. Use your hand to pull up on the tab and slide the harness from the valve.

    Use a flat-head screwdriver to remove the two screws that secure the EGR valve to the cylinder head. Remove the EGR valve and clean the surface of the cylinder.

    Attach the new EGR valve to the cylinder head and tighten it down with the same screws that were previously installed.

    Reattach the harness and reattach the exhaust tube to the valve. Tighten the two flat-head screws that hold the tube to the valve.

    Reattach the hose to the valve and use your hand to attach the clip to the hose.

    Hi. I understand I need to replace my EGR valve on a Pontiac Montana, 2000. (3.4 L) Any tips or guides on just how one gets to this valve? (behind air intake assembly)


    it looks much harder then it is, the best thing for you to do is buy the new EGR valve so you have a reference to look at. then remove the air intake hose and top of air cleaner box, then look at were the throttle and cruse cables attach's to the throttle body you will need to remove the steel bracket that holds the cables to the throttle body then remove the two bolts that hold EGR valve and the plug in on the top and replace the valve, take your time and don't panic at is basic auto shop 101. Just think if you can get it done your self ( and you can ) think of all the money you will save............HAVE FUN
