Hey all... I still didnt do that wire swap under the dash to clear the EGR Light that is lit on the dash... I know I was told that the EGR light will come on in the dash cluster every 60K miles.... But I was curious to know does that mean it will come on again at 120K miles and 180K miles???? Thanks Joe
See Im trying to verify mileage on my brat that is showing 62K on the clock.
Thanks for your replys Daaa REPLIES LOL... Joe

It will come one again at 120K. Not sure about 180K, only at 174K at moment.

Yes - clean it. It reduces combustion temps, and will prevent burned plugs and valves. The rubber hose that connects it with the anti-afterburn valve (if equiped) gets hard from age, and can get clogged with carbon too. If the valve gets really dirty it can stick in the open position and cause a huge vacuum leak.....

Yeah, it'll come on at 180k. Do a search. I asked what to do about mine and it was explained. Basically you take one of the wire connectors off and put it onto the othe (empty one). It resets it for another 60k.
