Code 71 Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) System Malfunction. Possible causes 1. EGR gas temperature sensor open circuit. 2. EGR Vacuum Switching Valve (VSV) open or short circuit. 3. Hose in EGR system disconnected. 4. Clogged EGR passage. 5. ECM. With the aid of a vacuum pump and applying vacuum to EGR valve while vehicle is running, vehicle should run rough or die which means EGR passages are clear.
