I replaced the EGR valve today and the vacuum line was a little short so I tried pulling on it and may have disconnected it, my problem is where does it feed from? Also I noticed when I was replacing the valve that there was oil in the tube going to it, is that normal and where does that come from? I recently purchased the car and still learning, so have no idea where or what any thing is, but I'm learning fast.Thank you
The check engine light came on and the code showed the EGR valve, I cleared the code and replaced the EGR, but haven't driven the car since. After replacing the EGR the car ran rough, so need to check the vacuum lines. Will let you know after checking the lines. Thank you 1Fredd
I drove the car this morning and the check engine light came on again with the EGR code, the EGR is new and I checked the vacuum line fom the EGR to the solenoid which is good, when looking further there is a hose coming off the rear of the soleniod that leads no where, is this normal or is it my problem, if so where does it go? As far as the oil in the other connection to the EGR, it doesn't seem to be a lot. I do need to fix what is causing the check engine light to come on withe EGR code. Thank you
The loose hose is supposed to be connected to the snorkel for fresh air. There may be a small line on the firewall near the battery. I think it should be connected there, but ultimately it's just a source of clean air.
I found the connection for the hose and connected it, no difference, I then tried measuring the vacuum from the throttle body to the EGR solenoid and I don't have any, does anyone know what it should be, I tried racing the engine a little and didn't see any movement either, am I doing something wrong? Thank you for all the help ,so far. 1fred
