The EGR valve can become clogged with carbon, which causes the Check Engine Light to illuminate. This can result in moderate to severe misfires on acceleration and the EGR valve and passages will need to be cleaned.Google+

Nissan Frontier Problem
Exhaust & Emissions Affected: 2.4L 4 Cylinder
Average Mileage: 132,943 mi (10,200 mi - 270,663 mi)
I have had nothing but problems out of my vehicle and now we are the end of warranty, by 5 months and I am told that I need a Canister Vent Control Valve and a Evaporation Control Canister for my vehicle that has been well taken care of, oil changes regularly, washed and pampered. My vehicle has 77,711 miles on it and it is going to cost me 700 dollars to get it fixed! It was just in the Nissan Dealership for the Gas Sensor that went bad in JUNE, a recall on the airbags in MAY and now this. Nissan has gone down hill and I will be sure to pass it along, that Nissan's now deals with "Throw Away" vehicles! You pay 30 grand for a vehcile to last you 5 years, really???? WOW! I am beyond upset at how Nissan handles their customers, vehicles and warranties! NEXT TIME I WILL BUY A CHEVY!
