Having problems with your 1996 Chevrolet Camaro ?

Engine misfire, EGR replaced still rough idle! I recently got my camaro, 96 V6. I noticed a couple days ago that it was lacking power and then my check engine light came and it was flashing. After that it has a hard time shifting into gears and it idles very rough. I got the computer read and it read P0300 Random Misfire and P1406 EGR Pintle Position Circuit. I replaced the EGR valve and when I went to start my car it sounded like the same, idled rough (it broke for a few minutes and sounded nor

First, check the passageway to the egr valve to make sure it is clear (often plugs up with carbon) second, make sure that the egr control is working. Also a good idea to have any codes checked and old ones cleared.Computer may need to cycle a few times to "learn"new parameters.
In general, it is good to shut down your engine when check engine light comes on...The next step after that is to determine why the light came on.
If the cause is an oil related or coolant related item, you should drive no further 'till it's corrected...However, there are numerous sensors that can turn it on with no disasterous results if you continue to drive One example is the light coming on because a gas cap has not been put on correctly...On many vehicles this will turn on the light and set a code, but the car will suffer no damage if you drove to your destination before correcting it.So, if the light comes on and it is not overheating and you have good oil pressure, and you hear no noises from engine, have it looked at but don't put yourself in danger on the side of a major highway for a nonsense code.
Most major parts houses will read codes free...take advantage of that service and get yourself a basic repair manual, so you have an idea what all the stuff under your hood is and does.
Good luck with your car!!
Heres an idea put a carb in it. because we all know fuel injected electrically controlled motors are so that a sensor will mess up and mess your car up when the part itsself is actully unharmed.
