    Error Code: P0404 Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) Open Position Performance.

    I've read on other forums that this valve can be cleaned...don't really know alot about the EGR though.

    Hopefully someone on the board will have the right info you need.

    Firstly, do you have an EGR valve? Some do and some don't.
    If an EGR valve is in the open position, the idle will be affected.

    "If the EGR valve is stuck open, it will essentially cause a vacuum leak, leading to inefficient combustion, rough idling, hesitation, and sometimes stalling in extreme cases." from http://www.wisegeek.com/how-can-i-te...r-replaced.htm

    EGR Valve for the Generation 4s is quite different from the Generation 2s. The site I referenced previously showed the Generation 2 model.
    For the Generation 4s, the EGR valve is mounted to the engine block near the alternator. If there is a cover plate there with two bolts holding it on, you have no EGR valve.
