P0401

 

DTC    P0401    Exhaust Gas Recirculation Flow Insufficient Detected


 

DESCRIPTION

Based on the driving conditions, the ECM regulates the volume of exhaust gas that is recirculated to the engine's combustion chambers and thus lowers the combustion temperature to reduce NOx emissions. The ECM monitors signals such as engine speed, coolant temperature, electric load, and vehicle speed. When the EGR permission conditions are fulfilled, the ECM controls the opening of the EGR valve linearly through signals to the EGR step motor.
 

DTC No. DTC Detection Condition Trouble Area
P0401 Change in intake manifold pressure is small when the EGR valve is opened and closed during idle fuel cut operation
(2 trip detection logic).
  1. EGR valve assembly
  2. EGR passage
  3. EGR with cooler pipe sub-assembly
  4. Manifold absolute pressure sensor
  5. Intake system

 

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

The ECM monitors the pressure inside the intake manifold while opening and closing the EGR valve during fuel cut operation. If there is no change in the manifold absolute pressure sensor value, the ECM interprets this as a malfunction in the EGR valve assembly, illuminates the MIL and stores the DTC (2 trip detection logic).
 

MONITOR STRATEGY

 

Required Sensors/Components (Main) EGR valve assembly, manifold absolute pressure sensor

Frequency of Operation Once per driving cycle

 

TYPICAL ENABLING CONDITIONS

 

Engine speed 950 to 1600 rpm

INSPECTION PROCEDURE

HINT:
  1. By using the Control the EGR Step Position Active Test, the operation of the EGR valve can be checked.
  2. When the engine is idling steadily with the EGR valve fully closed, if the EGR valve is normal and it is opened using the Active Test, the Data List value changes as follows.

    Data List Change in Data List when Number of Steps is Increased Using Control the EGR Step Position Active Test
    Engine Speed Idle becomes rough
    MAP Pressure rises
  3. Read freeze frame data using the intelligent tester. The ECM records vehicle and driving condition information as freeze frame data the moment a DTC is stored. When troubleshooting, freeze frame data can help determine if the vehicle was moving or stationary, if the engine was warmed up or not, if the air fuel ratio was lean or rich, and other data from the time the malfunction occurred.
