2000 Ford Windstar 3.8 misfire cylinder 5. Code reads cylinder 5. Changed egr valve. Plugged up egr hose with drill bit tip and car runs fine but the CEL stays on. Must pass emissions in next 9 days. Why does it run ok with hose plugged up? But misfires when connected? Should there be a lot of vacuum on that hose?


I would assume the check engine light is on now because the EGR is not working ?Depending on which hose you are talking about, it may be causing a vac leak near cylinder 5. There is a solenoid valve that cuts off vac to the EGR valve at idle whi ... Cars & Trucks

Either code 4000 or 1400 on 2002 ford ranger 4.0 ltr v6. the right code should equate to the egr valve. I have replaced the egr valve but check engine light comes on again after reset showing same code.

Have a 1995 ford contour and took it to pepboys and they got multiple codes. One of the codes came up twice code 332 says egr valve not opening could this cause all the other codes? My husband has checked and cleaned in and around the egr and replaced hoses, thinking its the sensor?

Have a 01 Ford Ranger with code of "P0401 EGR flow insufficient". I have replaced my EGR valve twice in 6 months. What is causing the EGR valve to fail so frequently? This has a 3 liter V-6, automatic.

1990 Ford Ranger, runs fine one minute (especially when its cold). Spit,sputters, back fires when giving it the gas. Sounds like the old VW Bug! It runs like the old cars when you got water in the distributor cap. I've replaced the EGR Valve back in August, and the Plugs,Plug Wires, O2 Sensor and Idle Air Control Valve last Saturday. My code reader now is reading an EGR Fault.

So we took it right back down for them to reset it again. They stated that since we replaced 1 oxygen sensor that one of the other 3 (cause there are 4 of them) is going b
