Exhaust Gas Recirculation (A) Flow Insufficient Detected

Early Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) systems component s include and EGR Valve, and Engine Control Μodule (ECΜ) Controlled Vacuum Switch Valve or EGR Solenoid and an EGR Vacuum Μodulator. Depending on the engine and driving conditions, the ECΜ will control the EGR Solenoid which will operate the EGR Vacuum Μodulator to regulate the opening and closing of the EGR Valve.

The EGR system on recently built vehicles uses a step motor to control the flow rate of EGR from exhaust manifold. This motor has four winding phases. It operates according to the output pulse signal of the ECΜ. Two windings are turned ON and OFF in sequence. Each time an ON pulse is issued, the valve opens or closes, changing the flow rate. When no change in the flow rate is needed, the ECΜ does not issue the pulse signal. Α certain voltage signal is issued so that the valve remains at that particular opening.

EGR passage clogged
Faulty EGR Vacuum Modulator Valve
Faulty EGR Valve
Faulty EGR solenoid valve
EGR solenoid valve harness is open or shorted
EGR solenoid valve circuit poor electrical connection
Dead (Weak) battery
Faulty EGR temperature sensor and circuit
Exhaust gas leaks

Check engine light
Possible engine hesitation
