Chosen Solution

P0404 - Exhaust Gas Recirculation Circuit Range/Performance

The EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) system's purpose is to redirect exhaust gas back into the cylinders.If the PCM determines that the valve should be operating, but the feedback circuit shows that the valve is not open,or in a wrong position, this code will show up. Most likely what's happened, is the EGR valve is all carboned up inside and is not functioning properly.It's staying open all the time. I would start with replacing the EGR valve. The EGR is located on the front of the front cylinder head, and has a tube that runs to the top of the plenum.

The other reasons for a P0404 according to the manual are

GOOD TRIP EQUAL TO ZERO

HIGH RESISTANCE IN 5 VOLT SUPPLY

EGR SOLENOID CONTROL CKT

INTERMITTENT CONDITION

EGR SENSOR SIGNAL CIRCUIT OPEN

EGR SENSOR SIGNAL CIRCUIT SHORTED TO GROUND

SENSOR GROUND CIRCUIT OPEN

EGR ASSEMBLY (GROUND)

PCM

TEST ACTION

Let me know what engine size and exactly what year you have and I will try to get the service manual posted for you. Good Luck
