The warning light came on for the egr valve. Dealer has replaced the egr valve. Vehicle uses less fuel now. Van shakes left and right at 37mph, and up/down at 48 mph. At first, dealer denie dproblem. However, after they checked other vans and found same problem. Consumer believes shaking has to do with a faulty torque converter. Also, multi-function switch malfunctioned.
