Ok. On the 2.2L engine, an extremely common fail item that can set this code is a faulty VSV for EGR. It's located on the rear of the engine, about midway down, behind the manifold. Best access will be through the passenger's side wheel well. Inspect the vacuum lines for any cracks, holes or disconnections. Inspect the electrical connector for any loose, broken or damaged wires. If the inspections check ok, replacing the VSV for EGR will solve the problem. Very common fail item. Please remember to leave a rating using the 'stars' or click 'Accept'. A 5-star rating is much appreciated! Rating or accepting my answer does not cost you extra.

Hi! I noticed this Q&A was still open, so I wanted to check in and see how you made out? Did replacing the VSV for EGR solve the problem? Any other questions you had? Was there something you wanted addressed that I may have missed in my answer? Did you find my answer helpful?
