-Cleaned out EGR (First time in 71,000 miles, the thing was caked!)
-Broke loose as much gunk in the intake manifold that I could with a screwdriver and shop vac
-CEL comes back on within 10 miles of driving with same code.
-pulled it out and cleaned again
-This time I hear one loud click as if the EGR valve closed? Like it really was stuck open and flowing too much all the time. Sooo I thought I may have freed up the valve and it was working for about 25 miles, now back to the same CEL, EGR excessive flow.
Do I have a bad EGR Valve?
Owner at NAPA said he sells more EGR sending units or whatever the electronic part is...for $130, which is cheaper than buying the whole complete valve.
Any advice would be great! I have not had a problem out of this truck besides the FICM and do not really want to do an EGR delete.
If it is a bad valve any good prices out there? Money is tight as always
THANKS FELOW STROKERS!
