Re: Jerky Saturn problem narrowed down to EGR valve. What next?

Here's new freeze data and live data from idle. I'd be glad to get any other data, if wanted. The car is still running great. No EGR valve errors, no hesitate, great acceleration. (My smog...

Re: Jerky Saturn problem narrowed down to EGR valve. What next?

Update

Here's an update. This info probably won't help the immediate discussion, but will be useful if anyone has a similar situation.

Update, details

First: I brought the car to its WA state emission test. The car had no SES light but still had a P0401 code. My code reader said it was a trouble code (not a pending code) which would fail the test....

Re: Jerky Saturn problem narrowed down to EGR valve. What next?

Since worsening, I've noticed something else: The car won't jerk during the first minute or so after starting it after it's cooled. Then it starts jerking whenever accelerating from a dead stop....

Re: Jerky Saturn problem narrowed down to EGR valve. What next?

Well, I'm not looking to do any extra work, trust me. :)

As for passing WA state inspection: I think they just plug a code reader into the computer and if it has trouble codes, you're in...

Re: Jerky Saturn problem narrowed down to EGR valve. What next?

It was good thinking, fdryer. I just tried your suggestion. Unfortunately, when I installed the Autozone EGR valve, I get the same exact problem. :hmm: Well, at least that definitely rules outs the...

Re: Jerky Saturn problem narrowed down to EGR valve. What next?

Here's an update. I've tried a number of things but none have fixed the problem. The problem is getting worse, especially when trying to cruise (but not accelerate) at highway speeds. What I've...

Re: Jerky Saturn problem narrowed down to EGR valve. What next?

I took out the ERG and gave it a good cleaning with Carbo cleaner. There wasn't too much build-up inside. (The car has 170,000 miles on it).

I noticed that the pintle would stick when pushed in...

Re: Jerky Saturn problem narrowed down to EGR valve. What next?

It seems that it's 'EGR valve' day here:D. There's another EGR valve thread (thread number 156772) from a few hours ago. Some of the information fdryer posted might be relevant.

Some more...

Re: Jerky Saturn problem narrowed down to EGR valve. What next?

By the way, I have used Saturnfans.com countless times to do some of my own car maintenance. The posts I used often too old to comment in. But this site has saved me 100s of dollars and several...

Jerky Saturn problem narrowed down to EGR valve. What next?

The problem: Our Saturn (1999 SL2, manual) would occasionally jerk at higher speeds and other times it was working hard (eg going up a hill). It started about a year ago (rarely, and difficult to...
