Tyler Snow (xSpliTTx): I have this same code, but my 2003 town and country doesnt have a egr valve.. Any idea's?
Tim LeFever: Hey great video, but just a heads up, there is no need to anything with the belt, alternator, the bottom bolt can b remove with 1/4 drive with extension and 10mm socket, just take it slow and saturate bolts with pb blaster prior to removing.
CPLPunismnt: On the money. Quick and to the point. Just what I needed! Thank you!
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.
Bob Builder: you don't have to remove the alternator, just use a 10mm ¼" drive with universal joint. fits in there no problem.
uncmouse: excellent,now have you done water pump on 01 town and country
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.
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.
Christopher Weier: Great video. I'm glad I watched it before breaking something trying to get that bottom bolt.
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.
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.
