Q: Too little flow on the EGR.

asked by on

I have an EGR system fault, the reading said that the ECM has detected too little flow on the EGR.

Have a certified mechanic check the operation of the EGR(exhaust gas recirculation) system. In many cases, the fault can come from an EGR valve that is not working properly or carbon build-up blocking the recirculation passages.
