I changed the EGR valve on my '02 PT Cruiser about a year ago when I got the code, not the check engine light is coming on again but the car is running fine! I have taken it back to my mechanic twice to have him check the code and reset it. Just last week, he changed the 6: plastic hose on the EGR system. Now the light is back on after driving only about 15 miles! He is at a loss as to what is causing the light to come on. Code is P0401. Any suggestions?

1989 gmc s15 2.5 - check engine light comes on - the code states a running lean condition. It comes on and goes off. When it goes off, I'm assuming it's going into closed loop and runs poorly and acts like the fuel filter is clogged (stutters & loss of power). All of a sudden the check engine light comes on and all power is restored (assuming open loop/circuit). All vacuum lines appear to be fine. Within the past two months I've replaced the EGR, fuel pump, fuel filters (twice), battery, al

My 98 Chevy Astro surges, sputters and dies after warming up. It may run fine for a while, then starts acting up again. I replace Egr and Map with ones from my other Astrovan, no good. Had a mechanic replace distributor cap after I gave up, no good. Check engine lights comes on occasionally. Codes are different at different times. 2nd mechanic didn't see it occur (of course) but did see code that said distributor wiring or something to that effect. Going crazy HELP!
