Toyota Camry 2000 Egr valve replacement

Asked by Aug 13, 2016 at 12:21 PM about the 2000 Toyota Camry CE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I bought this camry 2000 v4 manual a while ago.
Normally the car runs fine. But when i turn on the
A/C the rpm goes to 700/800 and stalls. Tookme a
lot of time to figure out the problem. I found that
theres something called egr and vaccum valve
which is missing in my car.  The 2 holes where they
should be connected are sealed.  As this is an
outdated car the mechanics couldn't find out the
problem. So surely they do not know how to fix it.
So im trying to fix it myself. if anyone have the
same car model plz help me sending a video of the
wirings (connections) of these 2 things. I can buy
the stuffs. i just need to know where to connect the
pipes. Please help me

Sounds like you need a Vacuum Diagram of those rubber hoses connecting things on your Engine. There should be a Vacuum Diagram LABEL under the Hood...in the Engine compartment. Might be on the under side of the hood it self....or else where. It is usually right next to the Engine Label. Disabling the EGR System was probably an attempt to resolve some other drivability problem. I recall those EGR Systems included a "EGR Modulator". Get back to us with updates...and...Good Luck.

Thanks for your reply. I didnt find the label under the hood.. But fortunately found some diagrams on the Internet.. Thanks for leading me to the right track.. I will try them soon. :)

Interesting....Vacuum Diagram Labels have been applied on vehicles by the manufacturer since the 1960's. How they disappear is interesting. We can tell that story some other time. Make sure you have the correct diagram for your Make...Model Year. Changes are often made from year to year. Good Luck and keep us up to date.
