I had been plagued by intermittent OBDII P0403 check engine light for months. I changed the EGR valve, had the harness replaced but to no avail. The workshop said it is the PCM and quoted a hefty price for it which I declined.
Feeling my engine "stumble" then the CEL come up I decided to give changing spark plugs a go. Changed it with NGK iridium spark plugs. To my surprise the spark plugs were standard Denso spark plugs. One cylinder had oil stains on the coil pack and spark plug. The valve gasket was replaced earlier so I presume this will not happen again.
After this the CEL never came back again. I wonder if I have really resolved the issue?
I still experience the following issues:
Intermittent engine vibration when accelerating at around 2100rpm
When idling my intake temp goes up quite rapidly from 55 to 70 deg Celcius.
Coolant is ard 98-100 deg Celcius.
Wonder if anyone has a clue?
