P0401

dirty egr valve.
I checked it and it doesn't seem dirty, I also checked and listened for vacuum leaks. The car runs the same as it always has but the light came on.
Its been raining out, is there any way something getting wet could be the problem?
would rather not buy a new egr right away.

has anyone else had this code and knows what I should look for.

Change or delete the EGR. If your state doesn't do a visual check just delete it and cap the manifold and then get your tune updated or get the car tuned.

Just because I give you advice, doesn't mean I know more than you. Its just means I've done more stupid ****.

Car needs a tune to block it off, correct?
This car hasn't been tuned but maybe in the future.
