I have a 2003 Chevy Impala that is giving me problems. It's sputtering when idling and slowing down, has stalled a couple times at a traffic light. Sometimes has a knocking sound, when in reverse the knocking is very loud and the whole car shakes. Also the check engine light often blinks.

My check engine light is on. I have a 1995 lincoln town car.sohc v8 4.6l. I went to a local parts store and had it checked free. They told me there is a problem with the egr valve. Code is P0401. Two o2 sensors #1 is P1131 #2 is P1151. What can you tell me buy this. I'm assuming I need to replace the egr valve and the two sensors will then read correctly. What do you think?

Egr valve I have a real nice 94 chevy light duty 2500 series truck with a 350 engine with 83 thousand miles. The check engine light comes on and goes off at times. I was told that it was the egr valve. I replaced it and the light still comes on. Now I was told that the ports in the intake that go to the egr valve are clogged. I was told that it is typical of this truck. Is this true and if it is can the ports be un-clogged without removing the intake, etc? Thanks, Stan
