1995 Pontiac Transport, 141, XXX miles, , 3.1L V6
OK, I just got the van and after about 4 miles the SES light came on. After a few miles, it went off. I went another 15 miles, on the highway, came to a stop light and just before I stopped it started running VERY bad. Then, just as I stopped, it died. But it immediatey fired right over when I went to restart it.
I got it up to a parts store, checked the codes, and came back as a code 32 (EGR System)
Later, I was driving down the highway for about 20 miles, exited, and as soon as I stopped it died. Started right up, but this time as soon as I put it in Drive, it jerked hard and died. Restart, jerk, die. Restart, jerk, die. Finally stayed running and got it back home.
Later that night, doing about 50MPH came to a light and same thing. Stop, jerk, die. Restart, jerk, die. I ended up having to have it towed. It would not go into gear without dying. The next morning, fired right over.
The EGR Valve looks brand new, I took it off the motor, depressed the piston and it moves freely with some resistance. While depressed I plugged the vaccum fitting and it did not move (so I figure its good holding the vaccum) What could be causing the problem of the dying?
Thanks for the help,
have the same problem?
