Question about 1996 GMC Jimmy
Posted by Anonymous on
Check for a vacuum leak around the EGR Valve . It is possible the EGR valve stuck open after cleaning it and causing an internal leak now.

yes you will have to hook it to a scan tool and erase the dtc or the light will stay on. sometimes you can unhook the battery for 30 sec or pull a fuse or turn the key on and off a couple of times

The mechanical components of the egr themselves may be fine, but the electrical circuit that moves the egr may be faulty. now if the egr valve uses vaccum to operate, then it may be sticking just enough to throw a code.

i wouldnt clean it i would simply replace it. its about 100 dollars at autozone and while you have it off go ahead and clean the metal tube that goes into the housing that the egr valve attches to. its probably clogged up with carbon get a pocket knife and poke at it till it breakes then blow air into it to make sure its clear.
