2009 Dodge Journey R/T EGR issues Sign In

I have a 2009 dodge journey r/t with v6 3.5L. I had error codes for egr valve and #1 fuel injector. Replaced egr valve and all 6 fuel injectors. Still getting error code P1404. The symptoms I'm having are surging/ jerking while driving at cruise and pinging in the engine. Any help would be great thanks.

Was the valve you replaced complete with transducer and solenoid?

Honestly I'm not sure. I was told to replace the egr valve so I bought one from the auto part store.
If your asking if it was the exact as what i took out yes.

Are you asking if the top/ plastic plug section and the lower half/piston section were there? Yes

OK, never mind. I looked it up and it's an electric valve.

Two things are possible. One is the EGR passage could be clogged with carbon or there could be a problem with the related wiring. You may have reached the limits of what you can do without a professional diagnosing it further.

I pulled it back out to clean everything after getting the code again. Thank you for your help

That doesn't necessarily hit the right spot. There is a small passage that could be further in.
