Hey how did you go about getting a tune done? Did you find someone or did you do it yourself? I'm trying to figure out that process because my lower hose on my EGR is cracked and sucks air (kinda sounds like a turbo) so i planned on just taking off the EGR all together. My only issue is that i need to find a way to shut off the diagnostic check for the EGR to shut off the CEL so i can pass washington emissions. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

the vacuum line that comes from the firewall to the EGR Valve itself, u can move it to the square box, that has the 2 tubes that come off it onto the EGR Tube (runs from EGR Valve to Exhaust Manifold), just move vacuum line from EGR Valve to that sensor, to the test port, and it'll keep the Engine light from coming on.....

hey thanks, i appreciate the feedback. I'm going to try it this weekend and see if it works. Also what kind of intake do you have? I need a CAI to free up space in the engine bay.

Bringing this back.

I've searched everywhere.

Has anyone found a diy fix for the code? Such as wiring in a resistor,etc?

What exactly triggers the code electronically? Is this a measurable occurrence?

Coming from the mistubishi would it was a $0.20 fix

The EGR is a vacuum based measurement on the focus that takes measurements before and after an orifice/restrictor. it is not temperature based. It measures the delta between the two to determine if there is sufficient flow. Not saying a resistor can not "fix it" but over the years I have been on the forum and working on my Focus the only way to fix it is through a tune.

Well thanks for the info. I was hoping this was something i could take care of myself. I enjoy little diy projects like that.

Far as i know the resistor mod was for temp based egr's.

Back to the drawing board i guess.

Before i spend too much more time looking for a diy, are there are vendors that offer a cel code out service separate from a full tuner?

I just dont feel my mod list warrants a tune just yet.

it requires a full tune to "turn off" the cell. it tells the computer to not report or not to look at that value. if you get that far into the ECU then you can do everything else. And to do it requires a SCT tuner that then gets locked to that ECU code. that is the expensive bit is buying a tuner that they get locked to that specific vehicle and costs $100 to "unlock"

Well that makes sense. $100+ to code it out probably wouldn't fly.
