There really is no "EGR solenoid" as such. The EGR valve is a digital electronically-operated assembly consisting of three motors ("solenoids") and three needle valves. It is replaced as needed as a unit (about $250.00). The valve assy is bolted to the intake mount by 2 10mm bolts. If you are getting a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code)such as "#3 EGR solenoid fault" it REALLY (generally) means that the very small orifice (port) for the exhaust to enter the intake is clogged up. To Repair: remove the EGR valve assy, spray liberally with INTAKE BODY CLEANER (NOT carb cleaner)and root out with small wire such as coat-hanger wire bent to fit. It will most likely re-clog within 1 year. I know of no permanent repair. Mark,,,Raleigh, NC

What does the egr flow malfunction mean on a 1996 Ford Aspire?

Does a 99 Mitsubishi diamante have an egr solenoid or just the egr valve. If it does have the solenoid where is it related to the valve?

Yes, the Diamante has an EGR solenoid. On any Mitsubishi, if the car has an egr valve, it has a solenoid to operate the valve. Just follow the vacuum line from the valve and it will go to the solenoid. There may be another one way valve between the valve and the solenoid, though. The solenoid is electronic.

How do you change the egr valve on a 96' dodge neon?

The EGR valve and electrical transducer should be replaced at the same time as they are matched. Remove EGR transducer from the air inlet duct. Disconnect vacuum supply tube from EGR transducer solenoid. Remove air inlet duct. Remove EGR tube to EGR valve screws. Remove EGR valve mounting screws. Remove EGR valve and transducer. Clean gasket surfaces. Discard old gaskets. If necessary, clean EGR passages. Loosely install EGR valve with new gaskets and finer tighten EGR tube fasteners. Tighten tube fasteners to 95 in lb, tighten EGR valve mounting screws to 200 in lb. Install air inlet duct. Connect vacuum supply tube to solenoid. Attach electrical connector to solenoid. Install EGR transducer onto air inlet duct.

What is the sensor PO400 on a 1998 esteem?

EGR { Exhaust Gas Recirculation} Flow Malfunction Early Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) systems components include and EGR Valve, and Engine Control Μodule (ECΜ) Controlled Vacuum Switch Valve or EGR Solenoid and an EGR Vacuum Μodulator. Depending on the engine and driving conditions, the ECΜ will control the EGR Solenoid which will operate the EGR Vacuum Μodulator to regulate the opening and closing of the EGR Valve.

Where is the EGR solenoid located on a 1997 Saturn SL2 and what does it look like?

EGR is on the top of the engine next to the throttle body. If your looking at the engine from the front. It would be to the right of the black valve cover and to the back. That is the egr valve, from 1994 and up the egr solenoid is located under the car above the starter.
