Q: Egr solenoid

asked by on

My car has 190000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

Hi there. Once these parts are replaced you need to do the test procedure with the same plug otherwise the light will remain on. If you did the reset then the circuit will need to be tested. It can also be a clog in the EGR port. I would usually check this when the EGR valve is off. If the ports were clean then testing of the circuit needs to be done as it can be the computer or simply a wiring issue.
