Lucky I have a pretty knowledgeable repair guy and after some trial and error, we determined the cheap relay for the Bronco is made in China and is significantly underrated. Would work for a while and would fuse after a couple of starts. Finally fixed the problem by ordering the relay from Ford. Hopefully saves you so headache."

Yo,
Background; DTC 334 EGR (EVP) closed valve voltage higher than expected; "

rla2005 had previously written on 15 MAY 2019 in response to a DTC 334 thread started by CZ Eddie on previoys day;"...We have seen the rod on the sensor too long from the manufacturer. This will cause the closed EGR signal (via the EVP) to be above specification then trigger code 334..".

CZ Eddie replied on 16 MAY 2019;
" I cannot believe it, but you were RIGHT.
That stupid freakin dorky tater tot silly EVP.
Both the old brand-new one AND the new-new one that I bought, were DEFECTIVE.
I shaved a tiny bit off the end of the pintle.
Put it on the EGR.
Ran the OBD1 test.
No codes.
Just 111 I loves you. 111 you are free. 111 **** the EGR. 111 time to move on now.
I put the spare old-new EVP on my bench grinder and took off as much metal as you can see in the pics below.
3rd pic is where it was before I touched it.
2nd pic is how much metal I removed from it.
Installed it.
And all is sooooo good.
I mean, pending drive test and all that.
But I'm going to buy the Motorcraft EVP anyways."

But Eddie wrote,. On 17 MAY 2019, "Oh yeah, and I installed the new Motorcraft EVP.
Oddly enough, it had a longer pintle.
So pintle length seems subjective to I guess, resistance. Maybe the non OEM units have the wrong resistance readings based on length."

It showed signs of this before but now it cant even maintain more than 22psi".

Yo,

Distributor:

SigEpBlue replied; "That's a darn good question. IMHO, I think AutoBone is trying to undercut their competition and has some sort of agreement with Cardone to sell cheaper & inferior parts, hoping the customers won't notice.

For instance, on the FOUR DISTRIBUTORS I went through trying to get a working one from AutoBone, the PIP wiring was very flimsy and thin compared to the one I ended up getting from NAPA (which worked on the very first try, btw). The NAPA distributor's PIP is beefy, like the original one, but came in almost the same box.

Something's going on, that's for sure. This wouldn't be the first time AutoBone did this, either. A similar scam, which never came to pass thank God, was proposed with some of Tenneco's products such as Monroe shocks and struts."

"Go motorcraft. My NAPA one died on me randomly. I bought another NAPA one because I was in a pinch, but have a motorcraft on deck if that thing craps out on me again."

Take a look at his recent posts and you'll see a ton of similar short comments adding nothing to threads... Almost like spamming...
