Hello,
My name is ***** ***** I am here to assist you with your question and help you resolve your concern.

Ask Your Own Pontiac Question

The most common caused for the code P0404 to set on the 3.4 is in most cases due to a failing EGR valve and if the valve is failing it can also cause the code P1779 to set. I would start with addressing the EGR code first and I suspect the other code will clear.

the EGR valve is brand new,OEM

Well if you still setting the same code then you may have a circuit problem to it or the EGR passages are restricted with built up carbon. Did you clean the passage?

Ask Your Own Pontiac Question

Before you start chasing the circuit try cleaning the EGR passages. See the steps to do this in the link below.

I can not open this, do you have a different way to send this?

The file is a standard PDF file and it should open on a regular PC as long as your not behind a firewall. It will not usually open in a mobile device due to size. I have no other way to send it .
