So I have been trying to track down the ol P0171 code in the bonne. I have checked the vaccum lines and replaced all that were worn and dry rotted, checked for corosion at the negative battery cable, just had fuel filter and pump and sending unit replaced about a year ago, although I have not checked the pressure in the fuel rail. All sensors are good and tight, so I have done my research here on about the failing EGR tube that cracks. So I removed the 13mm nut and the 13mm bolt, but I cannot get the tube out. There really is not enough room to just slide the ends out. The metal is so thin I am affraid of breaking it. So any input or tricks to getting this thing out. I really would like to check for cracks b4 ordering a new one. Should I take the whole EGR and both tubes off? Any help would be awsome. Thanks again.
