Will a bad EGR valve cause an eng miss at steady to very slight
If I hold the throttle steady going slightly uphill there is no miss but the
slightest downgrade she starts missing.
Had the EGR cleaned and still get SES light. The miss happens if the light
is on or not. Codes have pointed to the EGR. Idles fine and accelerates
I think the EGR is called a linear. It is electric with 5 wires.
Dont know the code. Shop never told me.
I was going to just replace the EGR at $150 myself but from different talk
around, this may not be the source for my miss at steady speeds. The EGR
fault may be masking something else. I guess I'll just have to dig deep and
take it to the dealer Wednesday.
Yes, the dealer can help you, but if you knew the code, you would likely
have a much better idea of what is wrong. Throwing parts (especially
expensive ones) at a car in hopes of repairing a problem isn't usually a
Is that the digital EGR??
Pull the EGR assembly off. (It's two nuts, and easy to do) If there's
under it, and your engine is one those that can crack the intake manifold or
gasket and let coolant in there, take the vehicle OUT OF SERVICE
IMMEDIATELY and get it fixed!!!!
