View Full Version : EGR troubles ?

This 1990 birds acting up again.
Sounds like it is hitting a rev limiter or something. Got a EGR code also.
Would a bad egr make it act like its got a rev limiter ?
Thanks in advance

Do you mean the tach is jumping around? Ot is it a misfire under load?

Mis fires under load, runs and seems okay if your just driving normal but when you put your foot in it, it seems to have reached its top rev and stutters

Sounds like plugs/wires...

Check to be sure a wire hasn't fallen off, especially if they've been worked on recently.

Doesn't sound like plugs at idle or cruising speed though only when you get down on it and the rpms go up.
Done a full tune-up quite a while age and after that it wouldn't run at all, found the battery was toast. strange that it had enough to crank it but after starting it ran like crap ! gonna put my scanner back on and see if it comes up with anything else

Get a better battery in it, then try again.
