SOURCE: egr valve is bad on my 1989 chevy with 305

You block it off before the valve on the metal pipe that runs to the EGR valve. The problem is that when you go to get it smogged you have to replace the EGR or it will not pass smog

SOURCE: How do I replace an egr valve on my 2000 Nissan

When you pop open the hood, look at the side of the engine on your right (driver's side). Underneath all the air intake duct that connects to your air filter is the EGR valve. It may  have a grey plastic top with an electrical connector attached to it (this top is about an inch and a half to two inches in diameter), a middle section below this that is made from a silvery metal with two rubber hoses plugged into it, and below this a bottom section with a metal pipe maybe three quarters of an inch in diameter connected to it. The metal pipe curves around and goes back behind the engine. There are two bolts that the valve is mounted on. To remove the valve, first you have to get a bunch of hoses and stuff out of the way to expose it, then disconnect the hoses and electrical connector from the valve, then disconnect the metal pipe connected to the base, then remove the two nuts on the two bolts. There is a gasket between the EGR valve and the engine which you will have to replace. It cost less than two dollars, good luck and hope this helps. WHen installing just do everything on revers. If you not sure if you can recall how the hoses goes back, take picture with your cell phone as reference.

I have a 2002 Saturn ls1. I put a code reader on it and I need to remove and clean egr valve. How is this done

locate your EGR valve. Saturn EGR valves are usually located near the intake manifold and throttle body. carefully remove vacuum hoses from the valve. then unbolt it. Remove the EGR valve and discard the old gasket. the valve has 3 bolts on it, 2 in front and one in the backside. if you can not let it soak for a few hours, then clean with shop towels and cotton swabs to remove built up carbon deposits. replace EGR valve with a new gasket. Good-day!

EGR Flow problems

I am assuming that you vehicle is equipped with a 3.1L V-6 since you didn't mention it. (If this is not correct, please post a comment and let me know.)

You most likely have clogged-up EGR ports.
You will need an EGR-to-manifold gasket, a throttle-body base gasket, a wire coat hanger and a spray can of carb and choke cleaner.
EGR Valve gasket: FEL PRO part number 70804 - $5.99 at AutoZone
Throttle Body Base Gasket FEL PRO part number 61053 - $1.49

Remove the EGR valve and the throttle body. Cut the wire coat hanger so you have a piece about 8" long. Use the piece of wire to scrape and pick through the carbon buil-up in the port that goes between the EGR valve and the intake manifold. You can work from both ends by going at an angle through the hole in the manifold where the throttle body mounts and from the other side where the EGR valve mounts. Once you have broken through all the carbon, clean out as much as you can with the piece of wire.

NOTE: Try to not allow this stuff to go into the intake manifold area - engine valve damage can occur if this stuff gets stuck in a valve. It may be a good idea to stuff a rag in the intake just beyond the work area to catch the debris. - DON"T FORGET TO TAKE THE RAG BACK OUT BEFORE YOU RE-INSTALL THE THROTTLE BODY!

After most of the carbon is removed, spray the carb cleaner through the port to finish cleaning it out. After you are satisfied that it is as clean as it is going to get, reassemble the EGR and throttle body. Clear your fault codes and retest the vehicle.

This should do the trick.

My 1992 chevy lumina z34 dies when I come to a stop sign.

I'm pretty sure your car has an "Idle Air Control" and this may be bad or the connectors to it could be corroded.

How do I change a in take manifold gasket in my chevy lumina?

remove the throttle body,remove the valve cover,remove the intake manifold bolts. you SHOULD be able to GENTLY pry the intake back enough to remove the gasket. be careful as to not scratch or ding any surface that comes into contact with the gasket.clean the gasket surfaces thoroughly and install the gasket. install in reverse order. make sure that you torque all bolts down to specs and in the order called for. on a final note...yu may have to remove the EGR valve to get some clearance to make it easier
