Question Excessive Egr Flow??

OK GUYS-- HERE IS A QUESTION FOR SOMEONE OUT THERE!!

CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON TONIGHT

WENT TO MY LOCAL 24 HOUR A/Z TO HAVE THE CODE READ

CODE CAME BACK AS EXCESSIVE EGR FLOW

WHAT CAN CAUSE THIS??:worm:

THE GUY AT A/Z (WHO I HAVE DEALT W/ FOR QUITE SOME TIME) SAID TO RUN SOME REALLY GOOD CLEANER THROUGH THE GAS.
ANY OTHER OPTIONS????

PS THIS IS ON MY 01 SCAPE- 3.0 W/ 51000 MILES

check your DPFE sensor first before you check your egr valve.

It's been posted elsewhere that you can clean those egr valves to relieve stickiness or other malfuncitons. Try that. Do a search on this FTE site.

DPFE = Delta ( or Differential) Pressure Feedback EGR sensor.
It is a small sensor that tells the vehicles PCM (Powertrain Control Module) how much the EGR valve is open.
Check with your dealer as there may be extended warranty coverage on it.

Did they replace the seat belt buckle with one about twice the size as the OEM? I've heard alot of people complain about the replacements being large.
