Re: EGR sensor Vacuum Leak

Have you checked to see if the cats are plugged? That can cause pressure on those hoses.

Re: EGR sensor Vacuum Leak

Sell a car over a plugged cat?

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?

Oh man sorry thought it was a escape, I am all over the forums today. On the escape yes the cost to fix the cats even yourself is astronomical, these will still be expensive but not as bad as the escape. The last one we quoted was for an escape was somewhere in the area of 3-4k to fix. Truck is not even worth that much you see.

The more I hear about newer autos, the more I like my old truck!
