Hey guys, just got a 626GT, 220k km, 5 door hatch, 5 speed. Awesome car.

The only thing is that its got a check engine light on with code 16, which is the EVP sensor. I was wondering if u guys attempted to take it out to clean it. I heard carbon deposits building up on the EGR is the cause of this code.

Is taking out the EGR to clean it hard to do? I have yet to get a hold of a Haynes or Chiltons manual, so i don't know if the EGR is positioned in such a way that its really hard to reach.

Thanks in advance!

Congrats on the GT.

Back in the day I tried to use the Haynes manual to work on the EGR. :tdown: It confused the hell out of me. Check out e-Bay for factory manuals. They are so worth it for about $25

For the EGR it's easy. It's on the passenger side (North America) of the engine near the intake manifold. It's held on with three bolts and has a couple wires and a vacuum hose on it.

It's real easy to clean once you get it off but the carbon buildup can be nasty. Try the search feature on the site for more info as this project has been discussed quite a bit.
