    Egr Code On 1995 Lumina 3.1

    Had check engine light come on, had it checked said solenoid #3 bad on egr, so had egr changed, passage cleaned and map sensor changed, still have check engine light come on only when going at 50 plus mph and letting of the accelerator, can drive in town will never come on also after the car is shut off for 3 minutes check engine light is off until going 50 mph and letting off the accelerator, this vehicle has a 3.1 engine is a 1995 lumina car. Was wondering if anyone else had this issue and how they cured the problem.

    Cleaning the passage usually fixes those, make sure it is cleaned out all the way to the intake. They usually plug up right at the intake opening of the passage.

    Did you put a brand new EGR valve on or a used one?

    I can say yes to being new because my neighbor, has the same car and it was rearended and wasnt driveable, so I asked him about my egr and he said he just had it replaced a month before the accident, so he was willing to let me try his egr, tryed it no difference, I should of checked the egr coils and ohmed them out to see if they ohm the same but didnt, my neighbor got rid of the car wished I WOULD OF PURCHASED, that egr to compare, so
    they say , snooze you looze. Will have it checked but first I will verify the port is cleaned out, when you take it a mechanic, they say they cleaned but maybe not.

    I also have fixed many EGR codes by cleaning the passage.All you need is a coat hanger and some patience.
