P0278 code options

Good evening

I recently got a P0278 code along with a code for the EGR valve.

First, are these related in any way? Could one be triggering the other?

Second, is replacing the injector for cylinder 6 the best course of action? Is it the only course? Can it be cleaned or refurbished?

Finally, Can the EGR valve just be cleaned or is this a replace as well?

I've done a lot of searching and find most times everyone just replaces the injector. But at the crae crae price I wanted to find out.


I'd rather have to fix it occasionally then have a car payment.

I'm following as I have the same problem
Did you find anything out for this issue or did you wind up replacing the parts?
