Egr Valve Removal

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I've got a P0401 code (insufficient EGR flow) on my 95 ES and I'd like to take a crack at fixing this by removing my EGR valve and cleaning it. Does anyone know what kind of external Torx socket I need to remove the EGR valve? I've tried to fix this once only to find that the ETorx set I bought from Sears didn't have a socket small enough.

Thanks!

The torx are annoying lol. I'll check tomorrow when i go outside, and give you the proper size.. it's like 2am right now ;)

I looked and it doesnt have many torx around the valve at all... only the fitting rail that holds it all above the engine. the large ones are T-40 near the manifold.

The only other two i saw should be T-20's possibly T-15's. would say T-20's though, they are the "reverse" type. where you need a socket type torx rather than a bit.

Hope that helps !

Thanks for the help! I was wondering about the bolts connecting the exhaust to the pipe running to the EGR valve. I'd hate to get it all jacked up only to find out that I need a hard to find reverse type torx.

wow LOL im a tard.

just realised you posted your year in the first sentence >.<

the evap systems are all varied throughout the years. some are under the hood, most are in back of the gas tank... i checked my 98 cuz im an idiot and cant read properly :P for me it's under the hood. isnt it burried under the gas tank and exaust pipe for the 95? someone in the other thread mentioned that.

But I highly doubt they would be swapping bolt sizes throughout the years. a T-40 will stay the same as with the T-20.

the torx kit is actually on sale right now at canadian tire for like 17 bucks. I happened to see a rack of them the other morning. it's the 30 piece set and when i checked it had mostly the bit's that are interchangable, and a small row of the socket type too. perfect if you didn't already have annoying torx.
