    Hey guys, im just curious if this has happened to anyone else or if you know what is going on. I have a 95 camry that runs great. The check engine light was on and it was in the EGR system, did all the vacuum tests, and it was the vacuum modulator. Changed it out, now the check engine light is...

    So I have a 2000 Camry solara 5s-fe engine and have had the code P0401 for about 3 months. I have changed the egr valve, egr modulator, vsv under the engine and completely taken off the intake manifold and cleaned it to make it like new furthermore the code came back again and again. What could...

    My 1997 Camry V6 has codes P0401 and P0402. The VSV for EGR valve (part 90910-12174) passes the 9V battery test, it clicks when power applied to terminals. I blew into the in port and when I connected the 9V the air flow out switched from one out port to the other out port. What do I test next?

    So I purchased a 99 Solara 5S-FE 5 speed from Florida and drove it home to Texas, no drivability issues whatsoever. The car had the CEL lit (Florida doesn't have emissions testing) and two codes, P0401 and P0446. One seemed related to EGR and the other to the EVAP system. So after a few weeks...

    I have a EGR cooler plate leak. Coolant is coming out of the top part of the plate. My symptoms are steam from engine and out of exhaust that's all. Would the plate leak cause that and if so do I just change the plate? If anyone could give me advice I would appreciate that. Thanks. I have a 91...

  8. RAV4 1st Generation (1994-2000)
    Getting a P0401 on a 1999 RAV4, but the EGR components and EGR system in general seem to check out OK: - Vacuum applied to the EGR valve causes engine to die at idle. - Vacuum line at EGR valve input shows vacuum that builds with engine speed, then suddenly cuts off, which to me indicates the...

    I have a 2000 Solara V6 3.0 L with EGR code. I need to get emissions test for plates. I found a vacuum line off which I assumed was the issue. To be sure I tested vacuum modulators. I used a meter to be sure I was getting voltage through the harness Both checked out (there are two modulators)...

    Ok guys, I seem to have hit a snag after years of dealing with this EGR system. P0401 1998 Toyota Camry LE 2.2 Steps Taken: 1: Inspected all hoses for cracks/air leaks (None found) 2: Changed out EGR Valve (Was rusted and not lifting when pressure was applied) 3: Changed EGR Modulator (Was not...

    Hi everyone, i know there are many threads to these issues but none seem to be what i am dealing with, i've got p0446 amd p0401 on my camry but i've cleaned out the egr passages that weren't clogged anyway, the valve works, the modulator works, have not tested the VSV could that be the issue...

    Ok, I have a 1995 Geo Prizm, 1.6 A4-FE, Manual trans, 180,000 miles, OBD 1 system, California emissions car. (in Ohio? lol) Prologue: The car burns a little oil. Mostly after downshifting for an extended time. I assume this is worn rings. But I keep it topped off. It uses about a quart a month...

    What tells the ECU/PCM to activate (by using ground) the EGR VSV? Which Sensors? O2, Etc? Thank you
  14. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    Im not having any symptoms other than a CEL. I have checked the EGR valve for blockage, hooked up a vacuum pump to the diaphram side and applied vacuum and car stalled, replaced gasket between valve and intake. I have checkednthe VSV for continuity and got 47 ohms when it was warm and it dropped...
  15. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    So i have a 1999 toyota camry, and came up with a P0401 code. ive cleaned out the EGR valve, and tested the modulator, so i believe the issue is the vsv. After a few useless attempts to remove the old vsv, i decided i would just remount the new one on the firewall, and leave the old one. However...
  16. Corolla 7th Generation (1993-1997)
    Got the p0401 code and the car stutters when stopped and the lights flicker. I have checked: Intake manifold cleaned and cleared egr ports Check vacuum lines Egr valve has been cleaned and check with vacuum pump for valve function and also while the car is running which stalls when vacuum is...

    Need advice. Was just about to start a timing belt/ water pump change so I did a coolant flush first. First time I opened the rear block drain it opened easy peazy, second time it seized... and is pretty much stripped in the EGR Cooler plate. Ive done some searching and havnt found any...
  18. Avalon 1st Generation (1995-1999)
    The check engine light came on my 1999 Toyota Avalon today, (Figures I need a inspection soon). The codes are for some type of EGR sytem fault and exhaust gas regulation. Car runs completely fine with no issues --- wondering if replacing the EGR valve would be the simplest fix, or does a...

    I'm checking out an EGR code P0401 on a Toyota Camry 1996 2.2L 4 cyl. Found great info on line re how to test, how it operates but from what I read and see it appears on this vehicle the only wired connection to this system is the VSV valve that switches Vac on to EGR from modulator. Saw some...

    Alrighty you guys I need your help... I bought my 98 Avalon XLS back in February and I knew she needed some work done to her. I replaced the wheel bearings on the driver side and left rear passenger side because they were roaring. After that, I replaced the speedometer cluster because I...
