Check engine light came on the other night. EGR insufficient flow. Good thing I’m getting me a tuna this weekend

I've been fighting an "insufficient egr flow" code in my daily driver ('96 toyota corolla) for over a year. I've thrown about $500 at it replacing parts myself, and shop bills, but the code still comes back.

Got some parts in the mail yesterday. Upper ball joints were shot. Figured I’d give these a try. A few bucks cheaper than Moog on rock auto. Lifetime warranty. Quality is impressive. We will see how they hold up. Gonna throw on some cheapie MonoMax up front while I’m at it.

Read somewhere a while back they were decent for the price. $48 on rock auto. Truck is gonna go through some changes in a few months so didn’t wanna go too wild.

Ball joints and shocks in. Boy... both of the uppers were gone. Not sure how both tires never flew off. Was one of the easiest jobs I’ve done so far. Out and in smoothly. Took a bunch of pics of the ball joints. Anyone interested in a review post?

Only been driving it since Monday but so far so good. Much better than the cheapo rough country’s I had

Just a few updates. Still have the truck. I’ve decided to keep it. Front end seems to be fine with new parts. Going to be getting a set of sleeves and UCAs next. Needs a new steering stem bushing. Still hate the banks monster duals. Still having an issue with voltage fluctuation, so much so that the lights will brighten and dim. But all in time. Bigger things to come.

On another note, since I see y’all and my family and this thread was labeled my life decisions, big changes coming soon. 2018 chewed me up and spit me out. I lost almost everything and everyone I’ve ever had. So I’ve made a decision to move 5 hours away to start fresh. New job, new me. Wish me luck guys. I’ll need it.

hard to beat a cleaned up black truck. Good luck Zak, past is past, bust ass for the future. BTW, flickering interior and exterior lights is not an alternator issue, its a battery issue. ive seen this many times personally. i dont know what it is with the batteries but every so often someone will call me with that issue, say they have replaced the alternator with no change but they put new batteries in not too long ago. They or i swap them out and its good to go. something about the batteries not absorbing the slight fluctuations from the alternator causes this. They are the buffer between the alternator and the truck electrical system.
