  • Sorry no one has helped yet.
  • This is not an answer to your question, just an inquiry if your still needing/wanting help. Because I believe I can help.

I still need help. Car is acting like it is getting choked on fuel and the EGR valve has been replaced.
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 10 months ago.

Do you recall the code number that was/is storing?

This bogging/hesitation your getting is it effected by engine temp, vehicle speed, throttle position, or does it occur all the time?

Hello again Chris here,

  • I am following up with you to see if you got everything you needed from my answer.
  • I have not heard back from you, so I assume you were not pleased. We're you pleased with my help?
  • If you were not pleased with my help, please let me know by replying so I can help more.

Thanks Chris

Hesitation in throttle happens between 2k and 3k rpms all the time. Code was for replacing egr valve which I did. Still happening.

Do you recall the code number?

Did the EGR valve replacement address the code?

Can you clean the MAF sensor and throttle body and report back on those results?
