Check the resistance of the EGR vacuum regulator (EVR) to make sure it's between 26 and 40 ohms. If not, replace the defective or incorrect EVR. Check the White/Red wire to the EVR for battery voltage with key on from the PCM power relay. Check the Violet wire from the EVR to pin 47 of the PCM for high resistance, open circuit, or short to ground. Check the amp draw of the EVR from the PCM connector looking for about 0.30-0.35A. If all tests pass then the PCM is to blame.

You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. I normally log in at 3pm and work late. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.

Thanks Chris
