    Is the "check enigne" or "service engine soon" light is on? A fault code would help but they do not "diagnose" problems- they just give us an area to focus on. Good luck, Greg

    No. Unfortunately, no error codes at all after MAF sensor and an O2 sensor replaced. I was looking at the other problems in this category and now wonder about the EGR valve. What are the symptons if this has failed?

    The egr valve will only cause a rough idle or stalling at idle. Have a muffler shop test for a plugged catalytic converter. Greg
