hello, I have actually an "04 lamb 1500 with 5.7l, and am gaining a code for the EGR valve. It looks simple enough come replace but I heard the stealership need to flash the ecm top top the truck immediatly ~ replacement. What is the reason for this? and has anyone changed one themselves v out flashing the ecm? go it work-related ok?I believe there was a TSB for this problem, what is the companys or dealerships duty for TSB"s?thanks in advance

Mine check engine light"s been on for a if now, password for EGR valve. Already have the part, waiting for a pair of complimentary hours for this reason I change it. Should be quite straight-forward, and also I"d say any OBDII scanner/flasher should be able to reset it.

I"ve acquired a girlfriend who changed his very own EGR valve top top his "04 hemi Ram and also has had actually no problems. No flash needed.

About 2 months back i had similar problems to few of you men above. Mine truck had actually a rough idle at stop lights and was tearing up my gas usage (even driving choose an old lady)and had the inspect engine light on but the only code it gave was the EGR Valve.The mechanic at the Chevy dealer i work at stated it could be a number of things however we started basic we changed the IAS (Idle air Speed) motor which resolved the idle problem and the EGR to be replaced however to no resolution. Ns still dealing with the EGR problem 2 month later!!! as soon as the inspect engine light turns off i have crappy gas mileage and my power dissapears yet when its on i have normal gas mileage and also normal power. You dont understand how frustrating this point is! i dont recognize what to do anymore! even the mechanic at the evade dealer i took the to was scratching his head and couldnt diagnose mine problem. Every he can say is try replacing the EGR yet the point is i have bought 2 brand-new valves in the past couple months! at $40 each time to not also fix my difficulty doesnt exactly make me the happiest male in the world. Ns kinda happy to understand im not the just one having actually EGR password problems. My mechanic has an idea ~ above what to inspect next so if i hit the problem i"ll be certain to be everyone here know immediately.
