Default Re: code p0733 incorrect 3rd gear ratio

The p1406 is a pintle position error when checked against the learned value.

Clean the socket and plug carefully with CRC QD-Electronic Connector cleaner and then carefully inspect the plug to verify each individual connector is at the same depth. Then reset the code and see what happens.

Clean the EGR valve itself carefully.

With a warmed up engine, remove EGR and the n restart engine to purge carbon from system. Engine will rev to 4000 RPM. Shut it off and replace valve.

Install one of these gaskets. http://www.sherco-auto.com/klean.htm You can usually find these at your local parts store. This will help keep the crud out of the valve.

Need more info on the slam. What gear, cold/hot, light acceleration or hard acceleration, A/C on/off.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Dizzy Re: code p0733 incorrect 3rd gear ratio

how are you doing oldnuc ? i was going to pm you but you were not logged in .the slam happens every time i drive the car past 42 miles/hour . i tried to do a count and i think it happens while shifting to the four gear . about the egr valve , i had removed it , cleaned it really well with carburator cleaner before i re-installed it . but i re-used the old gasket . so i'm going to replace the gasket with a new one and clean the socket and plug with the crc qd- electronic cleaner like you suggested . thanks oldnuc !

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
