Clueless....lol I have a 2000 mazda mpv and i hear a clicking noise along with a rattling on the passenger side of the engine. I was told that it could be the timing chain, or a possibly a valve. I just got the oil changed yesterday, blue smoke came out of the tail pipe after vehicle stalled. The van cut off on me twice yesterday, once before the oil change and once after. When I opened the hood of the van it had an exhaust smell.

2002 chevy impala 3.4 engine - egr valve bolt size? I was changing the EGR valve and somehow i misplaced the 2 bolts that secures the egr valve to the engine (not the 3rd bolt that secures the exhaust line). Can someone tell me the exact bolt size so i can buy 2 new ones? i must have tossed them by accident in the box the new egr valve arrived in. thanks.

Hi, I have a Mitsubishi Diamante ES2004 love my car. My engine light came on so I took it in for Diagnosis test. The trouble code p0401, which means exhaust gas recirculation flow insufficient detected. Possible Causes: EGR- control vacuum is too low (source vacuum hose is loose) EGR- exhaust tube is clogged or restricted EGR- solenoid valve has sailed] EGR- valve connector is damaged (check pins for damage, and for moisture) EGR- valve does not open (the valve may be damaged or failed) EGR- MA

2006 Kia Sorento 4X4, Diesel. Starts right up but runs "rough" (more vibration than normal and valves rattle at low revs) and produces great deal of white smoke until engine heats up (after about 2-3 minutes of operation). Once engine is heated up it stops producing white smoke but exhaust still smells very strongly, as if diesel is not combusting properly? Engine valves continue to rattle at low revs. Any ideas?


I would check all the basics like spark plugs and check for vacuum leaks around the intake manifold.With a can of 2+2 carb cleaner while engine is running --if idle goes up or down that is were your leak is--check egr too, Lee ... 2007 Kia Sorento LX 4x4

2000 mustang v6 has p0174 code. no leaks from hoses or anything external (vacuum) exhaust has no leaks. car runs bad uphill $ shudders from stopping at stop sign and accellarating. p0174 indicates bank 2 is lean (driver's side?) but no other codes present. check engine lite is constant. smoke comes from exhaust when I acellarate from idle when engine is warm. Again, I find no external vacuum leaks from all hoses and solenoids and egr valve.


Hi, have you checked for intake manifold gasket leaks? Pretty common on Ford V-6. With engine running, spray carb cleaner on the gaskets. If the engine speed changes, you have a gasket leak (yes, driver's side of the manifold).\015\012Thanks ... Ford Mustang

I have a 1992 Ford F150 V8, 302 engine. There is a ticking noise in the right side of the engine compartment under the hood. I lifted the hood and cannot hear the noise, I raised the RPM and still could not hear the noise. When I get in the truck and drove down the road, sounds like a cross between a valve ticking a fuel injector or an exhaust leak. I hear the noise, it only ticks under a load. I have changed the exhaust manifold gaskets on both sides, donuts on right and left side and put a ne
