    Yeah. The valve body separated from the plastic part while leaving the valve closed without throwing a CEL.

    Sounds reasonable. At least you have the peace of mind it doesn't need a complete rebuild! Did they explain how the EGR valve cause the symptoms reported earlier? Was the valve itself leaking?

    Aside from new EGR valve, which was a bit over $120 just for the part, they also did a vacuum pressure test, compression test, full service on the engine, checked the master cylinder pressure, and checked every gasket for leaks. Only other “issue”...

    Yay! The shop called. Turns out it wasn’t anything major, except to my wallet. $400 for a complete engine checkup just to find out that my EGR valve self destructed without throwing a single code or CEL. I should be able to pick it up later today. I...

    p.s. I also get a kick out of the idiot Youtube commenters who call it (among other things) an Isuzu Aztek. The Vehicross came out 4 years earlier (1997) vs. 2001 for the Aztek. Also, since GM had (still has) controlling interest in Isuzu,...

    He, like pretty much every other pundit in the known universe, is wrong on the selling numbers though. VX was always intended as a low-volume vehicle. I really wish people would stop referring to the low sales numbers as proof that it wasn't a...

    I finally broke down and put it in a shop. I should find out later today what the cost is going to be. Having the entire engine gone through to include new timing belt and full service while they are in there. Once that is all done I can work on the...

    I used a very thin flat head screwdriver. One of the caps got a minor chip but it was on the inside. Seriously thought I was going to break them getting them off. To get the rail and tail fin off you need to pull the head liner.

    For the rails caps, I use a steel pick tool with an "L" shape on one end. Stick it under the outer bottom lip and GENTLY pull outwards to release cap from it's "lip". 50% chance you might break one since the plastic is so old. Will refer you...

    Nice article! I get a lot of compliments on a regular basis. Blacked out & 3-spoke wheels really make for a unique look that is quite appealing to most.
