    1996 STS
  1. Have a 1996 STS Seville, the check engine light is on the car is saying to service emmisions, replaced gas cap and check engine light went out, then about 1/2 hour later it came back on and won't go out now. I would like to know if anyone has any suggestions about what to do and want to know if there is a good way to clean EGR valve versus replacing it. Thanks
  2. Service engine light on

    Did the guys from autozone tell you about "EGR valve that lets unburned gas fume go back to gas tank" ? Under certain conditions the EGR valve lets exhaust gases into combustion chumber to cool the mix down and decrease pollution. Please define TB? Thanks LL
  3. Have a service engine test light on, went to auto zone for code reading was told it read P1406 which said to check out the EGR valve, also was told to replace gas cap which I did and light went out immediatly but a few minutes it came right back on. Does any one know where EGR valve that lets unburned gas fume go back to gas tank is located. Also how big a deal is it to replace, Thanks LLewis
  4. I have a 1996 STS Seville, the turn signals sometimes work and sometimes they won't. It was like when the flasher got hot after the turn signal was on for a while it would guit working and then after it cooled off they would work again. I replaced the flasher and everything was fine for about three weeks then they guit all together. I replaced the flasher with another one and they still wouldn't work at all then this morning they went back to working. I thought maybe moving the steering wheel was makeing a difference but yesterday they wouldn't work at all the this morning with out doing anything they started working again...... any suggestions on how to solve this problem, I want to thank you in advance for any help. You guys are great..... Thanks, Larry Lewis
