The short answer- Poor 'staking' by the factory to hold the plug in place.
The longer, more complicated answer is that the plug is made of steel
and the EGR valve body is made of aluminum. Since the valve body is
exposed to a constant stream of hot exhaust gases, it tends to expand more
than the steel plug, allowing the plug to move under high exhaust gas pressures
and eventually work it's way out of the valve body.
If your Sidekick has high mileage (+100k miles) there's also a chance of a partially
blocked catalytic converter, which would raise exhaust pressures @ the egr port
even higher, resulting in the plug being blown out.
I've had it happen twice on my 96 Sidekick (1.6 L engine), and I'm ready to replace
it again. You'll find that an American nickle fits in the place where the plug blew
out and use a metalized epoxy to glue the nickle in place. This fix lasts about 2 years,
Hope this helps!
then there is a short some where!
It being an American vehicle
To small a fuse for the circuit, short in the wiring, or defective ECU.
Find out why the fuse is blowing. You have a short or the circuit is overloaded.
bad ground, check wires to see if they are cut/torn/melted etd.
It had to go at least 50 mph to keep from blowing up.
for fuse to keep blowing, there is a short in the eletrical system somewhere. check the a/c switch and the a/c clutch
becaz d air molecules require more space than required if u keep on blowing air into it
It has an iron base which weighs it down to keep it from blowing away in windy conditions.
not usually!!if fuse is blowing out check for short!!
I can't tell you how but I can say you have an electrical problem. There is something shorting out also there should be other accesories not working that are on the same fuse
take a close look at the lighter itself. It's 14 years old and might have a short-circuit in it. You can test that with resistance meter.
To keep the roof from blowing off in high winds as well as to add weight to the entire trailer, to keep it from blowing off it's foundation in a high wind.
How can I start the engine on a Lincoln town car. I accidently caused the horn to keep blowing and I kept pushing buttons on the remote until it quit blowing. Then the anti theft lights were flashing on the dash and the engine would not start.
because you failed to pull the DTC codes with a coder reader (OBD2) and then correct this error. pull the DTC code and post that . get Huge response
To keep your papers from blowing away.
Does the obd2 plug work? allot of the time it can be joined with the cigarette lighter. Check that it could be an issue. If not I would think the ecm may be shorting out?
I assume you mean the fuse keeps blowing? It's certainly possible for the lighter element itself to go bad as well as the socket you plug it into. Also, there are often other circuits that use the same fuse.
It is very common for the starter to be the cause of that fuse blowing.
Obviously, if any fuse keeps blowing there is a serious fault in that circuit.Take it somewhere they can fix it.
Found problem, intermittent short circuit problem in turn signal switch, replaced switch, problem went away.
Problem with plug shorting?
