You still have an EGR vacuum regulator, a vacuum harness, an entire wiring harness, and a computer involved in that sub-system. There could be a fauly EGR vacuum regulator(EVR), there could be problems with the vacuum lines to or from the EVR so that when the EVR opens no vacuum is getting to the EGR, there could be wiring problems between the EVP and the PCM, so that the PCM is not getting a proper signal from the EVP, there could be problems with the wiring to the EVR, so that the PCM command to open the EVR is not getting to the EVR, there could be problems with the PCM so that the PCM is gettting the signal from the EVP, but is not processing that info properly, there could be problems with the PCM so that the control output to the EVR is not working. A scan tool never tells you what is wrong with a car, because the PCM has no way of knowing exactly what is wrong. It only knows what sub-system it is not getting an expected reading from, so it can only tell you what sub-system is involved, as in the case of a code 31. Code 31 does not automatically mean that you have a bad EGR/EVP. It means that the PCM does not see an expected voltage value from the EVP when it thinks it should. That could be anything in that sub-system, which includes all the above stuff. I reccommend you should obtain a volometer, and a wiring diagram, and possibly a diagnostic flow chart.

Are llames and alpacas relaced?

First we must specify if llamas and alpacas were laced in the first place. What exactly does laced mean? Lace means "a netlike fabric that is threaded" according to So the suffix "-ed" means "forming the past tense of" so "laced", therefore, would mean past tense of a netlike fabric, possibly meaning that the lace was there before, but not now. This would make sense, since in order for something to be "relaced" it would have had the previous lace to be removed. So are llamas and alpacas laced? It appears that maybe their shaggy fur would be considered as lace, as it is somewhat netlike and is definitely threaded. Therefore, we can safely say that llamas and alpacas are "laced". But are they "relaced"? If a llama or alpaca was laced, and then shaved for it's warm and soft fur, but then the fur grew back, that camelid would have been "relaced". So, technically, llamas and alpacas can be relaced.

Does someone know if my ignotion switch needs to be relaced because when I turn it to start the truck it kinda makes a clickin noise in the column and wont even let me turn it over?

I think that your problem will be in the starter. I think that the solenoid is not kicking the bendix into the starter gear. Check the wiring, check for a good ground. If that is not it pull the starter and remove the solenoid and replace it. Your local auto parts store can test your starter to see if it is working. Jeff if you think its the starter, remove starter and bench test it. if you can't do this at home you take it to your nearest autozone or checkers and they can check it for you. if the starter is good. reinstall starter and try a remote ignition switch. you can find them for less than 10 bucks with 5 feet of lead wire and alligator clips. hook it up to stater. turn key on and start with remote and it should run. turn off key and try key start again. if it doesn't start that way you know you an ignition switch problem. this method should until you get a new switch. I had same prob I tapped the side of starter litely with hamer and tried again to start and it started up it, ended up being the starter and I replaced starter, problem solved

What would cause an 86 Celebrity to cut off while driving?

May be a fuel related problem. Have you changed your fuel filter. if so what about noise from the fuel pump. does it hum loud? I had the same problem some time ago. It drove me, and my trusted mechanic friend, NUTS! We relaced the fuel filter, fuel pump, coil, computer, various map sensors, etc. I am presuming you have a carbuerated car. There is a throttle mixture sensor mounted on the top of the carb. (It has a wiring connector mounted to it. If I remember correctly the connector is blue in color.) A replacement throttle mixture sensor costs @ $175!, but it will solve your problem.

How do you find the problem if your Chrysler Sebring's 20v ignition fuse keeps blowing out?

I had the same problem. Everytime I would turn the ignition past Accesory to the On position the 20A fuse would pop. I went through 15 or so fuses. I could get it to start every now and then, so one time it started I drove it up to Sears Auto and they diagnosed the Battery as having a bad cell. Replaced the battery and haven't pop a fuse since then. Popping the 20A ignition fuse....have your battery tested and probably replaced! check the starter too if battery is good I had this problem as well. It turned out to be the starter. It occurs when you move to "start" and the starter fails to engage. Whether this was simply a bad solenoid, or something else in the starter, I can't say for sure. In short, if the engine didn't immediately turn, the fuse would blow in about 2 seconds. I got around it for quite a while by being very careful to not hold the switch in start unless I detected the engine turning over. Eventually the starter ws relaced and all is well.

1988 ford mustang wont blow out hot air of heater relaced thermostat?

With engine warmed up and running, open the hood, locate both heater hoses, feel each heater hose with your hand. If both hoses are equally hot, I would suspect you have a temp blend door problem. Replace the temp blend door actuator. If one hose is hot and the other is only warm or cool, I would suspect you have a plugged heater core, Try flushing it.

I have a cbr 125r have just had a new battery relaced but has already gone flat. Could this be affected by a faulty ignition coil?

More likely a charging fault. Check stator, rectifier and regulator. A faulty ignition coil would cause misfire, scant acceleration and lumpy idle.

How do you repair the power seat wiring in a 2003 Lincoln Navigator The seat will not move?

If it is just one seat then I would start to make sure that the connector hasn't come apart some how. If it hasn't then the motor will probably have to be relaced. If all power seats don't work then check the fuse. You should be able to find it in the owners manual. Hope this helps.

How do you straighten a rim on a bike?

Depends on how badly bent it is. If it's only a litttle off it can be trued by adjusting the spoke tension. If it's a lot off it should be scrapped, but they can be saved if unlaced, manually straightened and then relaced. This will leave the wheel an undetermined amount weaker, so it's on your own risk., www. and will tell you about it.

Is it possible to install a coaster brake like the ones you have on beach cruisers on a free wheel bike instead of having it fixed gear?

Yes, but it would require you to have the wheel relaced with a new hub. Prices being what they are you're probably better off buying a new rear wheel with the coaster brake hub already installed instead.
