SENE DJOUZU: Chrysler Town and Country P0404 P0406 fix EGR Val…: http://youtu.be/DXL3QFaqPZ0

Fish Man: Man, This video was excellent. Afetr watching it. I went out and it was exactly like you described in your video. Took about half hour total and done. Light went off and good to go. Thank you. I subscribed to your channel. Best mechanic video I ever seen.

J Court: How did you pick the right one since there are two for the t/c van and they both look the same 

Mike Brown: No need to remove the alternator. Just take off the top bolt of the EGR component, and use a pry bar to easily move the EGR back (toward the firewall) and expose the Lower bolt for easy removal. This whole process should be fast and easy.

Andrew Morency: You need to research you description of what the EGR is used for. It is used to reduce oxides of nitrogen (N0x) by introducing an inert gas into the combustion process to cool down the combustion temps. It is not used to improve fuel economy.

Steven Mitchell: im glad someone picked that up about EGR very good inert gas to reduce Nox

Michael Kanzia: Awesome video. Thanks for sharing your experience.

heymanwhataboutBob: You can just loosen all bolts except bottom one and use a pry bar to push the egr valve back and this will break bolt free and allow you to loosen easily no need to drop alternator.

Steve Bannister: thanks for the info

George Podrebarac: I was able to get that lower bolt out without touching alternator , wheel etc......20 min out, 20 min in...use a 1/4 inch drive socket ...I'd attach a pix but I don't see such an option...............................

Chris Eytcheson: Good video, thanks for posting this.

uncmouse: excellent,now have you done water pump on 01 town and country

Christopher Weier: Great video. I'm glad I watched it before breaking something trying to get that bottom bolt. 

Bob Builder: you don't have to remove the alternator, just use a 10mm ¼" drive with universal joint. fits in there no problem.

Hack Multimedia: The replacement alternators leave space for you to put a socket in the lower part of the valve. I had a P0404 code, replaced the valve, then two days later the catalytic converter clogged, causing the van to go a whopping 10mph and an excrutiatingly painful 7mpg! Loosening the four bolts on the cc got me around town until I could replace it, but that same code remained.

sakeyes2: Wow! Thanks for this great video! Going to attempt to replace mine this weekend now that I know how to do it.

David James: EXCELLENT - u spoke in "I don't know crap and I'm not a mechanic" much appreciated !!!

DDK45: If you have a 1/4" flex socket with a small extension you will be able to get the bottom bolt out. No need to take out alternator. 

briansmobile1: @ckempjr07 You're welcome man!

drspankymfc: Did not need to remove alt. Just use 1/4 small socket and 4" extension. To initially break loose bolts use 3/8 to 1/4 adapter and 3/8 ~12in flex socket wrench. Then you can use 1/4" socket wrench

Chris Chauncey: Hey Brian I'm getting a p401 code. I just had the alternator, belt and intake gasket replaced. Could this be the EGR valve as well? Thanks for the help if you can!

Nick Dorsey: Brian, I myself had to deal with that belt tensioner when replacing the water pump over the weekend-- It's a nightmare to replace that thing. Also have changed a few EGR valves myself. Seems there are many common issues with these, power steering res gets blocked, water pump leaks, EGR, and front brakes(I end up going through a set every 6 months, rotors get torn up too). I think when I did the EGR I drove it hard for a bit to heat the head up, lower bolt should come out without much force.

Gerry Jamieson: Thanks but in looking at the images (can I send you a couple to show you what I mean?) it does not appear to be the valve cover gasket leak.

briansmobile1: @mysticalmayra Right on.

arrowmanjr: how do i get to the back 3 spark plugs on my 2000 Chrysler town and country with a 3.8 motor

CPLPunismnt: Thanks for posting that. Took all the mystery away. Totally doable. You da MAN!

AllanMinneapolis: I've finally tried Kano aero kroil and found it works really well on ancient rust frozen bolts (better than PB Blaster? I think so). Really helps me out sometimes. Have to buy direct from them.

briansmobile1: yes. O2 sensor bank one sensor one failure.

beenselock: 50% diesel and 50% automatic trans fluid, works awesome. much better than pb blaster, i have a little spray bottle that i have it mixed in and its always the first thing i grab.

briansmobile1: Check for blocked EGR/intake manifold passages.

briansmobile1: Yours should be servicable without removing the alternator or the belt. The tensioner is actuated by a special bar with a 3/8" square like on the tool I made in the Mini Cooper AC compressor video. "sword tool"

DeadringerFRED: You should take the tube right off and clean the inside with carb cleaner or WD40. Use cleaner that won't leave a residue.

jeff27577: well damn, the bottom bolt will not let go. looks like im pulling the alt. was hoping to not have to do that.

briansmobile1: @linaeme46 In my industry we call that "parts swapping" and it's the mark of incompetence..... bless his heart.

3dalelittlejohn: INSTRUCTIONS FOR REMOVING AND REPLACING EGR VALVE ARE CORRECT. TO CLARIFY THE PURPOSE OF THE EGR VALVE IS TO RECIRCULATE EXHAUST GAS INTO THE CYLINDER TO INTRODUCE A INERT GAS TO LOWER THE PEAK COMBUSTION TEMPERATURE IN THE CYLINDER TO LOWER THE FORMATION OF OXIDES OF NITROGEN TO REDUCE SMOG EMISSIONS.

J Court: Ok still lost. Get o2 sensor but bank one sensor one fail has lost me

briansmobile1: You're welcome!

Jackie Midkiff: Where is the fuel pressure regulator on a 2005 grand caravan sxt?

Mark Spearman: Thanks so much. This is going to save me a few bucks. I just bought a code scanner, looked up the code, found your video, and I should be set. I'll by through your amazon link if it's a competitive price.

briansmobile1: You're welcome- thanks for watching.

rubberman365: Sorry egr1582 dam fingers lol

seniorjohnl: i thought egr was to introduce inert exhaust gas back into the intake to reduce NOx emissions, and to prevent knocking/pre-ignition under load.

briansmobile1: Way to go man!

MattyBlodgett: Thank you so much for the excellent walk through.

briansmobile1: Could also be a fuel pump or ignition control module.

briansmobile1: I just made a video about that. Watch it on my channel. ( I made it for you just now )

mrexecutive1: @MrGILCORY here are instructions for alternator by the book. 3.3L & 3.8L Engines Remove or disconnect the following: Negative battery cable, Alternator harness connectors, Right front lower splash shield, Accessory drive belt, Lower oil dipstick tube bolt and the wiring harness from the tube, 3 mounting bolts, Dipstick tube, Alternator.you may clean blts with brush if you would like. EGR does not need to be removed. Install in reverse order, Tighten to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm).

Roland Deschain: Attention Dosbox Turbo Users there have been some recent changes to the app and you may need to modify a few things to get it working properly again. In the dosbox settings menu after you select "manual mode" there is "Config location". You will need to change the path to find the dosbox config in the root directory of your internal memory. It will say something like this(Note the path can vary depending on the device): /storage/emulated/0/android/data/com.fishstix.dosbox/files/dosbox.conf Remove this part: android/data/com.fishstix.dosbox/files/ Change it to this and it will work normally again: /storage/emulated/0/dosbox.conf This should redirect the data back to the root directory of your internal storage. Take a look at the Dosbox turbo page here: dosboxturbo Read a forum note about it here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=53184821&postcount=211 Sorry for the inconvenience
