I have a 2002 V6 auto with 55k miles and a few days ago I got the check engine
light but the car seemed to be running fine. So I cleared it by removing the (-) battery lead and the next day it felt to be running rough and on the way home from work the check engine light came on again. Went and got it checked at the auto store and they said it was an EGR issue but probably a fluke, so he cleared the code and I went on my way. Last night I got the code again on my way home from work. I took the EGR valve off and cleaned it with carb cleaner and q-tips. Took it for a quick spin and all seemed well. This morning it was running rough again on my way to work. No engine light yet but feel it could turn on soon.
Any help guys?
I bought some spark plugs & cables that I will try to replace this weekend to see if that helps. Wondering if it could be related to the fuel pump, as I just replaced the fuel filter about two weeks ago (yes its on the right way). Maybe the EGR valve is shot and just needs to be replaced?
