You didn't search

Search on cleaning EGR.. in the case of yours being digital..I'd heat up the car.. using adequate gloves..take it off.. spray TB cleaner into it..(it'll boil) and push the pintle in and out numberous times until it moves freely.

Presently the car is at my son'* auto class since I don't have a code reader, he sent me an email with the details. Now that I think of it I did take the airbox out to diagnose an abs code, but I thought I plugged it back in.

Thanks Bill, who rules all...........as for the EGR, I'm going to look into it when the car is back.

Yeah, I accidentally left the IAT unplugged once. I know it gets kinda cold in MN, but the car thought it was 120 below. In June....

Back at WCBF my accordian tube (Series 2 IAT location) was changed out for some smoother tubing. I moved the IAT to the lower corner of the airbox. Can't easily see it'* not plugged in.

YUP..I forget mine nearly every time I pull my airbox That nice little light reminds me every darn time too.

Thank'* for the clarification Bill.

Ok he'* the report, Michael'* auto teacher, told him that he put a meter on the IAT and it'* erratic and not reading properly so he'* saying that it should be replaced. He also mentioned that once the IAT is replaced it may take care of the second code since the IAT need to be operating properly in order for the EGR to be working properly also. On that note, does anyone has a part # for the IAT so I can order one. Or maybe I can PM Drifter to see if he has one off of his parts car. Speaking of Drifter I haven't seen him online for several weeks.
