Last week, on top of my snapped spring my car failed emissions :D. My exhaust system is stock besides r&d catback. The car apparently failed because the SES light was on, they didn't even bother to hook it up to test the exhaust gas...

Now last year i had the same conditions and i passed emissions only that before going in i cleared my ses code with an obs scanner. Everything went fine. SO im about to try going in for a retest after i clear the code again but its not really solving the problem, and thats something i want to take care of. I have no faith in shops, so i wanna try fixing this myself with a bit of help from here.


The SES code is P0403 - EGR flow circuit malfunction. I've had this for a while now, probably over a year, never seem to affect the car in any way so i kept delaying taking care of this.


So far i checked my o2 sensors to see if they were wired right still. In past i ran a header setup where i had to extent the o2 sensors. Its all holding up.

First thing i wanted to check would be the diode in the EGR system, or some sorts of EGR sensors. I've looked through the repair manual but i couldn't find any info on where its located or how it looks like. If someone could point me to it (the diode) i would appreciate it.

Any other info would be nice too.

Replace your EGR solenoid.

I had the same code, replaced it. Gone. It's not life threatening or anything though, it won't really affect much from my understanding.

If you need any more info, look here:
http://www.club3g.com/forum/problem-reports/48267-egr-problem.html

That's where I found all my info.

I didn't bother replacing any of the valves or anything, just the actual solenoid FYI. It solved all the problems. The part was about $40ish shipped to me and I got charged $20 for someone to put it in (I didn't want to mess with it since I don't know where it is exactly.)

You can get the part here:

Auto Parts People

The part number is: MR127520

Edit: Make sure you give your VIN number too to ensure you get the right part! Oh yeah, they're all OEM parts too - FYI.

Only one problem though. As fas as searching the part number goes, there is only 1 control solenoid and its listed for a montero. The rest are all listed as valves in the description. Am i looking on the right screen?

That part number does come up as a valve on that website for everything but the Montero...but if you look at the part number, they're all the same...just different names for the same part...

Pick up the one from the Collision Catalog, the 2nd posting.

Make sure you get the 3.0L one since you have a 3.0L. Just throw in the VIN and you'll be ok.

Thanks for the e-rep!
