1999 Ford Taurus SE, 163,000, V6 24 valve DOHC
A few weeks ago my " service engine" light came on. The code was " insufficient airflow to the EGR". So I replaced the EGR valve & had the carbon cleaned out of the intake. My service engine light came back on. So I replaced the other two parts that go to the EGR system in Ford's, which were the EGR Vacuum Solenoid (the switch), and the EGR Valve Pressure Sensor (the control unit) this past weekend. However, my " service engine" light has again come back on giving the exact same error. And I've tried having it reset multiple times already & just driving it waiting for it to go off all to no avail. Do you know what is going on? Also, I live just outside of Atlanta, GA & thus I have to pass an emissions inspection in order to renew my plates. Which I have been unable to do because of this code. Is there any way that I can bypass the EGR system & at least get my car to pass the emissions test until I can figure out what's going on? As I've replaced everything that it should be effecting, I'm thinking maybe my computer is just being temperamental.
