1994 Ford Range 2.3 L changed EGR valve, cleaned intake manifold, changed vacuum line and still get EGR fault HELP!

Asked by Apr 27, 2013 at 01:35 PM

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Code reader shows EGR valve bad even though I replaced it twice, cleaned intake manifold and replaced vacuum hose

1 Answer


An EGR code doesn't' always mean you need to replace the sensor. Something can trigger the sensor into a bad reading. It could possibly be the EGR vacuum solenoid, or the DPFE, or EGR pressure feedback. I'd try the DPFE first. Are you clearing the codes after install?
