Need to replace EGR valve

I have a 2005 Chrysler T&C van that needs to have the EGR valve replaced. Can anyone let me know where this is found and what is the level of difficulty to replace? I have been searching for a repair manual online and cannot find one. Help please!

The exhaust gas recirculation valve is located on the intake manifold on my Isuzu. All it does is make the exhaust coming out of the tailpipe less poisonous. I'm ironiclly going to replace mine tomorrow. There should be a wiring connecter that you dissconnect and a large outgoing pipe that you need to unthread and remove. All that is holding on your EGR valve are two bolts. Remove those and the gasket and good riddance! Scrape the intake manifold with a razor blade, gently to remove the gasket completely and thread on the gasket to the new valve. Then just rebolt everything and plug in the electrical connection and start the engine. It should sound good.

How much should it cost to replace a bad egr valve for a 2005 chrysler 300c

An EGR valve is simple enough to replace. The part alone costs roughly $90.
It is located at the back of the engine.
If you take a look, there will be a Iron rod going from the back of your intake manifold ... downwards ... its going to the EGR Valve.

Egr sensor needs to be fixed how do i do it

EGR valve is not serviceable. 2-4 bolts and a gasket plus the harness connector and you are done.

Dealer gets around $140 for the repair, or you can probably DIY for half that.

This issue is well known on the 05 Chrysler vans.

Code P0406 egr valve faulty needs replaced

well,if you know how to install the egr valve,i recommend doing it youself because the part is NOT covered under dealer warranty.i have an 05 300 limited and had this work done.the total cost will be between $480 - $600 dollars at the dealership.if you know a competent mechanic,take it there instead.the part cost around $200 dollars.
