check engine light wooas

so in my 95 /h22 the light will come on after runing it on the freeway for awhile or a good long city street drive. so i get some whare i can pull over and use a lil jumper on the wire behind the center console, first i shut down the car then jump the jumper and turn it into the on position.........no code comes out. then i wait for it to come back and then jump the jumper with the car on never turning it off the srs just blinks and blinks....

Re: check engine light wooas

I DID i cleaned the newer egr on the engine now to dam near factory fresh tested the diaphram and all everything looked good,reset the ecu and the code came back as soon as i hit the highway.
then i took the egr off the other engine i have its a oem factory egr did the same thing re-set the ecu and still no luck......
For $200 a pop on these things im going to stay away from just replacing it.....for now
the vacume lines look great i guess a better inspection wouldent be a bad idea i also had a question.
what is/does the lil black box just north of the battery have to do with the egr being thats where it seems the vac lines lead.
evac./evap.?

Anyone know where to get a MIL eliminator for it?

Re: check engine light wooas

thanks to smokin_racer1 suggestions got the egr all figured out.
dude i got the car from had the vacume lines all stupid.
my egr was conected to the evap system and then also in part valved off to the fuel tank.......
stupendious!!!
now that the egr code is gone the car feels alot smoother, my question is_

where can i find a detailed vacume diagram online or elsewhere the chilstons guide is geting me just a little bit upset.
part of my problem is this is suposta be a 97 model year h22 and it is in a 95 lude? :rant:
