The EGR system has two main parts: EGR Vacuum Modulator and EGR Valve. The EGR Vacuum Modulator is easy to find at the top-rear of the engine. It is round and has several vacuum hoses attached to it. This part can be removed by twisting/pulling the hoses and sliding it out of it's bracket. There is a filter inside the top cap of the EGR Vacuum Modulator which can be cleaned with soapy water. Dry it thoroughly after cleaning. The EGR Valve, also round, is directly below the Modulator and connected to the modulator via a vacuum hose. It can be removed by removing two 13mm nuts, one vacuum hose and one electrical connector. The electrical connector simply unplugs. NOTE: There is a thin gasket between the valve and the head. Do not lose this. Once you have the EGR Valve removed, detach the tube with the phillips-head screw and then Unscrew the EGR Gas Temp Sensor (the part with the wire). Clean the EGR Valve with engine cleaner or carb cleaner or parts cleaner. Mine was FULL of thick oil/gunk. Clean the gasket, the temp sensor and the mating parts. Clean any gunk out of the hole in the head (a flexible mirror will help you see what's in there). Re-assemble everything. Don't forget to put the filter back into the Modulator. NOTE: The Modulator filter goes in with the smooth side down toward the ground. Reset your Check Engine fuse (15 Amp - located inside the under-hood fuse box).

You don't, it has a spring loaded tensioner, If the serpentine belt is loose the tensioner has failed and needs to be replaced

Check fuses for the air bag system. If they are ok. You have no choice but bring at the Toyota dealer place. There is not much what you can do when you have some problems with the safety system.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it probably will. We have a 2005 Toyota matrix that needs to have the SLT solenoid repaired and i just got quoted $600.00 in labor plus the cost of the parts.... not to mention the $200.00 it cost just to get the diagnostic done.

I have 3 possible solutions: first, replace the speed sensor. it is located on top of the transmission. if this didnt work, then try replacing the speedometer. last but not least, if all these failed, replace the ecm.

Your catalytic converter may need to be replaced. Your CEL may be lit. Get your ECU scanned for trouble codes. The EGR may cause high "HC". This usually stands for hydrocarbons. If your engine has high mileage, burning oil contributes to increased levels of hydrocarbons on the emission test.

It now appears that the "mechanic?" maybe dumped alcohol in the gas tank to get it to pass Emission Test. Can I prove it now--No! However I am replacing the lifters,rocker arms, push rods and heads which had a cracked valve and loose valve stems. I have also been told you can not set the timing on this model.

Depends on what failed on the emission test. HC? CO? NOx? Combination of these? Check to make sure all the vacuum lines are okay. No cracks or anything.

Check the fuses. If they are good, the electroluminescent display has failed. The flourecence may have been affected by temperature change or age.

Mine failed because I had a bad battery connection and my car had died the night before. I had to drive it for another 70 miles before it passed.

Depends on the model# and the condition. You failed to mention either of these.
