Took intake off cleaned all the ports on intake new egr valve still throwin p1406
Expert:  Dan replied 11 months ago.

This usually happens due to carbon coming out of egr passages causing egr to stick open. The best/easiest fix is to get EGR filter with built in screen which keeps carbon out. Let me know if you have more questions, thanks.

You do not need a new EGR but will need to clean EGR valve.

Expert:  Dan replied 11 months ago.

No you do not need a new egr but need to clean the egr pintle since carbon is probably stuck in it right now.
