You are watching: 2006 town and country egr valve

*

I had a mechanic tell me the the EGR valve needed to it is in programmed on mine 2006 Chrysler Town and Country Touring 3.8 liter V-6 so it was readjusted and that hooked a device to it and also programmed it. He stated "you got to regime the performance meter come the acceleration that the vehicle". He likewise said that it would certainly still run poor for a couple of days then it would begin running fine. It has actually been 6 days and I"m still having actually the same difficulty so ns asked one more mechanic and he told me the EGR Valve walk not need programmed. Does anyone understand if it demands to be programmed??
I"ve never ever done anything an ext than disconnect the battery during EGR replacement to reset the computer when replacing an EGR valve. To reset the quickly, folks approximately here advise to disconnect one next of the battery terminal and short it come the various other to quickly drain any kind of remaining power in the system and assure a full reset (Please execute not effort to short in between the terminals v both terminals still linked to the battery... That will certainly likely get ugly). Theory has it that the PCM does some initial "learning" regarding the EGR reported solenoid positions because that future reference. Never heard the programming the EGR, yet perhaps there"s a means to trigger this finding out via a diagnostic tool?What is the trouble you are experiencing?

I"ve never ever done anything more than disconnect the battery throughout EGR replacement to reset the computer when instead of an EGR valve. Come reset that quickly, folks roughly here advise to disconnect one side of the battery terminal and also short it to the various other to easily drain any kind of remaining energy in the system and assure a complete reset (Please perform not attempt to short between the terminals with both terminals still connected to the battery... That will likely gain ugly). Theory has actually it the the PCM does part initial "learning" about the EGR report solenoid positions because that future reference.

Sorry it took me a few to get back with you, I"m on causing obligation 10hr days 7 job a mainly at occupational right now. I want to begin by saying I appreciate your response. The difficulty started v the check engine light coming ~ above it was the EGR valve. I changed it then about a week and also a half later it started losing power. It gained worse and also worse very quickly over the weak. A mechanic hooked it as much as a an equipment and it"s claimed that the Catalytic Converter to be 83% clogged which to be backing up right into the EGR Valve making the EGR Valve walk bad. For this reason he had me run 3 bottles that CataClean with it. My mam took the back about a week later because it had actually no improvement, that was gaining worse. He stated the EGR Valve required to it is in programmed that"s why that was running like poor still. He programmed it and also said the it would begin running far better within 2 days an additional 5 job past and it was running worse the inspect engine irradiate come back on. I scanned it and also the EGR valve was bad again. So he called me to unhook the battery cables and readjust the EGR valve the would conserve what he had actually programmed. I changed the EGR Valve again and also still the same problem. I decided over the following 2 days ns am walking to take it the catalytic converter loosened and tie the up, climate take it for a ride around the block to see if I have power back. I figure if I have actually power earlier then the catalytic converter still needs to be clogged i m sorry is causing the EGR Valves to go bad. If the doesn"t job-related I don"t have any kind of other ideas on what might be leading to the problem.Also ns bought a Chilton"s book yesterday and also it go not cite programming the EGR Valve.
