The EGR is failing intermittently. Car is smoking with gas dripping out the tailpipe intermittently as well.
Got it out of shop today & its still not right. It was constant before it went in & they said it was fixed.
I followed it in another car and saw it would smoke/drip 3 to 4 times with a 1 mile distance.
Last Feb '05 they put in new O2 senser, spark plugs & PCV, rebuilt the top end, tune up & pressure cleaned injection system - $2400.00.
Its had this problem ever since then, reaked of gas so bad I hated to drive it with the convertible top down.
They blew me off 5X this last year trying to convince me there was nothing wrong until I recently had the catalitic converter & muffler replaced.
Gas was spraying out of the tailpipe up to a foot away when engine was revved.
I suppose they weren't trying too hard to fix it since they weren't getting paid, just did adjustments. It needs repairing before it ruins the new cat conv.
Could the EGR cause this gas loss or something else?
