Pontiac 3.1 EGR valve

3 posts in this topic

Put new head and intake gaskets in my daughters Grand Prix this spring and after I did that the service engine light comes on everytime she drives it but it seems like it only comes on when she applies the brakes. I'm assuming that she applies the brakes hard because I cannot get the light to come on when I drive it. The computer says that the service engine light is coming on from the EGR valve. I checked the wire connectors and they seem fine and I also took the valve apart and cleaned it. Still receiving the same code. Any thoughts of what might be the problem?

Whats the code?

My guess is that it comes on when she hits the brakes because the computer is not seeing the correct "closed" signal from the EGR valve. The EGR should be closed when the vehicle decelerates or is idling. If it was stuck open you would likely notice the engine running rough and a really hard brake pedal.

I don't remember the code number but it said "EGR performance". The car runs fine.

    • After a quarter century in the construction sector I learned you should take your budget, double it and add another 10%. That gets most people in the ballpark anyway lol. 
    • You didn't even understand the question Junior. Do we need to get you a translator? 
    •   And then what? There's a saying that goes, "Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it."   You have a country of 300 some million individuals and a good number of that all have different ideas how to so call fix this. That's why we are set up as a representative republic and not a democracy.   You seem to be assuming most people will see things your way

    • Look my very own internet stalker making memes about me, such a proud day.

    • I guess the question is when are we going to get pizzed off enough to do something about it? Guess we aren't there yet.
    •   Hi guys ... Everyone was very helpful last year with what line to use ect...   As I was a fairly new Bass fisherman.  Had a great last open water season as did great with Texas rigs with variety of Senko's.  Also started throwing frogs with 50# power pro with 7'6" med Heavy rod ... wow is that fun!!   What brand is every throwing or like?   I'm going to try the Bobby's Perfect Frog this year  by Snag Proof.  I threw the Booya's this last year and that is a rush.  Can't wait for some basin times!!
    •   Yep, had to fix a few of those switches and tell the wife and kids to let the motor stop before pounding it in reverse!!
    • Kind of crude image but here is what I'm looking at.
    • Access is in the middle but I'm not overly concerned with that.  I can seal it up and cut a new one.  I'm thinking about slide channels mounted on the wall with a steel or aluminum frame mounted to the channels that can slide up and down with a electric winch routed through a couple pulleys. 
    •   You and Bearsheet.................blame everyone but yourselves.  All you those grueling hours you 2 spent in Sillytown advocating for Gary "Hillary is great" Johnson.   #victim #noonegetsitbutyou
