146,000 miles. 4 cylinder, 3-speed automatic.
I just bought this car, and the light came on, obviously the people who sold it turned it off, but thats another story.
The code was an EGR failure. I took it to a very trusted mechanic and he replaced the EGR valve and the Solenoid valve. He said they were cloged up with a crystal like substance. This problem started again and it continues to give EGR code, and the crystal like substance continues to clog the EGR valve. Is this carbon build up? Or is this something else. And estimate as to how much it is to clean the intake manifold?
