Hey guys

I had the p1404 code in my 99 grand am gt with 87k....

I bought the new EGR valve and installed it just now...

Just started the car up and the SES light is still on, so do i need clear the code and/or let the car run for a while? In order for the SES light to go away that is...

Let me know, thanks!

Yea ill try that...thanks

The very first time i went to drive the car, i was stopped at a stop light and thhe car started to idle really rough. The car drives fine, but just at a stop and when in park the car JUST started to idle really rough. I had NO problems with the car even with the SES light on prior to installing the new egr valve.

So does the new EGR valve have any play in this recent idle issues? I mean, there has to be something because the car was running perfect until putting in the new EGR valve....

Do i have to recalibrate the PCM after putting in a new EGR valve?

no on recalibrating the pcm. yes you might have gotten a bad EGR valve.

other then that, theres nothing else that could have caused it pretty much right?

I have been planning on changing things just for the hell of it,
so im gonna change my plugs, wires, fuel filter, belt etc

I mean it wont hurt anything to go a tune up. I guess just make sure everything on the EGR is hooked up right. If they are then you might need to try a new EGR.
