Question EGR Code

All,

I have an error code E0404 EGR valve/performance. What does this take to fix, the guy at the shop suggested I take it to the dealer, but that seems a little extreme. Has anyone else had this before?

Thanks,
Jay

The EGR valve either needs to be cleaned or replaced.

it could cost about $300 -400 at the dealership, they charge you for reading the code, investigating, parts, & labor
if you can, make sure the EGR valve is clean, a dirty EGR valve can trip the code too, how are the hoses or lines going to the valve, any pin hole leaks?

It's on the right front cylinder head. Changing it involves 4 bolts and only takes a little while. IF you PCM has stored an EGR code you can pretty much bet the valve itself is bad.
