Default Replace EGR valve P1404

I had a P1404 EGR Valve Closed Pintle Position code on my 2006 dodge ram 5.7 Hemi. I went to the dealer and bought a new egr valve and installed it myself and now all is good.

It was very simple to replace, it is located just below the altenator


slide the red clip on the electrical connector to the right, from this


to this


then use an 8mm 1/4 inch drive deep socket to undo the egr to intake tube


then use a 10mm 1/4 inch drive deep socket to remove the 2 bolts that mount the egr to the engine. Re install the new egr valve in the reverse order. Only took about 40 minutes.

Did you clean the return tube with some brake parts cleaner?

I found this for an 05 4.7, should be the same.

Quote:
Its located on the rear of the driver's side head. Its actually very bad to change.
If you look at the left side of the plastic intake manifold, a bit to the rear of the throttle body you will find a metal tube coming off, it makes a 90 deree bend to the rear. Follow this tube to the rear of the left head, and you'll find the egr valve. Its in about the most horrible spot you could imagine. You'll have to lay on the engine to replace it. A drop light is a must.

The EGR tube comes into the left side of the valve. It has 2 8mm bolts that hold it on. I always use a 1/4" drive 8mm swivel socket and a 3" extension. There really isn't much of a choice. Be careful when you get about done removing it, the gasket may fall and your new valve won't come with one. There's an alternate way to get the tube off, I'll get to that.

To remove the valve from the head you have to remove 2 10mm bolts. The bolts go straight down from the top. Don't bother looking for them, you have to feel for them.

The other thing you can do is remove the 2 bolts that hold the valve to the head and remove the valve and tube together. When you put it back together you have to leave the tube loose from the valve or you'll never get the bolts back in the valve-to-head joint.

Excellent write up! Although I did not clean my EGR valve. I went to Advance Auto and bought a new EGR valve for $39.99 and it comes with a lifetime warranty. Thank you so much for posting this!
