Question about Cars & Trucks
Hi Garage have told me I need to replace my EGR valve Ford focus 2008. They have quoted 317 euro plus VAT and then 70 euro labour? Does this sound right? If possible I would like to do it myself. Where will i find the egr valve and what have i to to to clean/replace it? Where can I Buy an egr valve???
I found 3 sources, Supaprice.Co.UK, Ebay/UK and Amazon/UK for an initial search.
Just go to your Browser and type "2008 Ford Focus 1.6L diesel egr valve" or add UK to the field and run a search. There were more than the 3 results I mentioned
You may have success by looking up the Toll free numbers of Autozone, Oreilys, or Advance autoparts and ordering Internationally.
I hope my solution is helpful, please rate.

you probably have blocked passages in the intake manifold. remove the egr and check the port for a clog. you can scrape most of the carbon out with a pick or screw driver and then use some spray carbon cleaner in there. also check the metal exhaust line to the egr

Testimonial: "i looked at what was discribed and that wasnt it.Good thought thouh"
You probably pulled a code p0401, insufficient egr flow. Your DPFE sensor is more than likely at fault. There has been a lot of trouble with these sensors. Then reset CEL or disconnect battery for 5 minutes.

Remove the throttle body housing on the top of the intake, it is a 90 degree tunnel like small piece held by 4 small bolts, turn it over and look for two holes, these holes are for the EGR valve flow, they are probably plugged up with carboned crud, clean them out with the tip of a screwdriver if neccessary to remove all the crud, once its clean reinstall it and reset your check engine light, hope this helps, let me know

If it's a 2.0L, 5 speed (1994-7) there are two DPFE solenoids (both w/ 3 vacuum ports) near the oil filter, which control the EGR valve. They are discontinued and impossible to find except on junked cars. (FORD #'s K5T44093-4)
I have to junk my 1996 Probe if I don't find them - Missouri emissions.
