    Have your tried EGR side steps?

    I have looked at the DeeZee running boards and the EGR integrated ones. I am really leaning toward the EGR ones but the drilling required is really turning me off. Anyone have these installed? How do you like them? Photos? Here is a link to the ones I am looking at...

    Why does it sound like I'm turbocharged?

    Recently my Explorer has started sounding like it's got a turbo on it when it's under load. She usually only does it under heavy acceleration or going up hills. The driving characteristics haven't changed, but I just wanna know what could be causing that spooling sound? Could it be related to my...

    EGR Solenoid and Shuddering Problem

    My '03 Ford Explorer v6 has been shuddering a lot for the past year. It will rev up and down when idle, even stall out occasionally. It has gotten progressively worse so I took it in to a mechanic. They told me to change the Mass Air Flow Sensor and spark plugs. I did so and it worked great...

    Code P401still-replaced EGR & DPFE

    I have a 1996 Ford Explorer with a code of p401. We replaced the EGR valve and the DPFE. I am still getting a p401. I erase the code and darned if it does not come back. I want to check for a vacuum leak but I have no idea were the hoses are or where to start. Any other ideas of what to...

    Electrical issues with my EGR.

    Alright, Hi again guys. I'm still having EGR issues and it's just now getting bad enough for me to be nervous driving far from home. The entire EGR system is new, replaced the EGR, EVR, and PFE. They all have vacuum, and function correctly when manually tested. However, most of the time...

    Eddie Bauer EGR/EVR Issue

    Okay, I posted a thread a while back on a rough idling problem. Thought I had it fixed, but apparently the car thinks otherwise. I keep pulling codes every few times I do something to it and the codes have gone from a consistent 332 to a consistent 335. These codes will not quit, they keep...

    EGR system trouble.

    My check engine light came on. I checked the codes. It showed an EGR system code, not exactly sure which one off the top of my head. I replaced the EGR valve and DPFE. Reset the computer, and it still popped up. SO i replaced the EGR vacuum solenoid. Cleared the codes again. Still comes...

    EGR valve issues

    Hey all. I've been chasing vac leaks. I have rough idle, flares, fades, stumbles in OD at low rpm. I tested the diaphragm by adding vac and it opens and closes properly. There are tiny holes on the underside of the disk rim. One in the back seems to pull air. Is this a leak, failure of...

    P1131 - Engine stumbling and lose of power

    I have a 98 Explorer 4.0 OHV that has been giving headaches for a couple of months. During cold start, the engine idles rough almost like it's missing until I get the engine to 2500 RPM then it smoothes out. Anyway, a couple of month ago, one of the lines to the DPFE had a slice in it so I...

    EGR Valve Tube Leak

    My 2000 4.0 OHV has a leak in the EGR Valve Tube, it has been welded once, so repair is probably not a good option. I had a garage look at it, they are recommending replacing the LH Manifold, the tube, the EGR Valve, because everything is so fused together. One manifold stud is broken, they fear...

    Smoke test for Vacuum Leak

    Hey guys..I'm getting the infamous right/left bank running lean on my 2000 Explorer. So I ran a smoke test to see if there was a vacuum leak. The upper intake manifold is def leaking in one spot so I guess I'm replacing the gasket for that for sure. I also saw smoke coming out of the "knob"...
