    I did. I trimmed it up so that it had just a bit more than it needed to reach the back. I did the same on two trucks without issues.

    Alright. Then I have no idea what’s causing the code. 10k 1/4 watt 5% is what I am using. Not sure what the 5% means. Any idea on that? Thanks again for the quick replies.

    I honestly don't know what that means either. These are the ones that I bought: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0185FIOTA/ref=oh_aui_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    You sure that the code you're getting is for the EGR sensor?

    Yep. P0401. EGR insufficient flow. I got the 1/4 watt and it looks like you used the 1/2 watt. Not sure if that makes all the difference but it may be worth a try.

    Yeah could possibly be the difference. IDK enough about electronics to be able to explain the difference. It's worth a shot. If you have trouble finding them, I still have a shit load of them. LMK if you want me to mail you a few. Just PM me your address if you want them.

    Awesome thanks. I will just order some. Don’t want you to pay to ship them to me. I will repost if this solves the CEL issue. Just curious, do you know if this will pass inspection in NC if there is no CEL?

    I have no clue what emissions testing is like for you guys there. I do know that here they check for codes and hook up a tail pipe sniffer and it passed no problem with that resistor in

    I did this a year ago. The resistor thing is giving me some hell. I can clear the code and it doesnt come on for 2 months then it pops on EGR flow excessive. I just keep resetting it. I know the resister is the right one. just a strange gremlin i guess
