Got a check engine light again on the 3.2TL. 'Insufficient EGR flow'. Last time I took it to the dealer and had it cleaned under the emissions warranty. However the car is at 170k miles now, so I'll need to do it myself.
Does anyone here know how. I'm looking for a guide of some sort.

its easy- there is only 1 egr port in the manifold to clean out- same as they did last time, You dont clean the valve or pipe- its the internal port that exhaust gas passes thru into the intake.
Here is the DIY- just omit the part about installing the special spacer or changing the studs
You will need new intake gaskets http://tl.acurazine.com/forums/showthread.php?t=156252
also read gen2 thread DIY on Seafoam and do it
PM your email address to me and I'll forward the EGR information I have. It is modest and does not provide detailed guidance for the specific job of EGR removal and EGR passage cleaning. It covers intake manifold system which appears necessary to access the EGR and EGR tube into intake manifold.
The referenced link provides detailed guidance on intake manifold removal and you can see the EGR and EGR tube clearly in one of the pics.

I don't drive em, just fix em.
My wife's 3.2TL just popped up with the same code. The dealer wants $450 to clean out the EGR port which isn't going to happen. If I tackle this myself, will the CEL clear itself or do I need to reset the ECU? Thanks!
