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.

I had the same problem and your right no egr on 2005 town and country I have the same vehicle and the place for the egr is covered by a metal plate I also had the same exact problem with my van misfire bad idle at stop lights and after replacing every sensor there is and testing every part and injector with Ohm meter I read an article about the intake manifold plenum gasket leak can cause misfire so I bought new intake manifold plenum gasket set for only $7.99 and installed them and like magic the van ran perfect no more misfire no sluggish start from light Van is fixed finally!!!
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.
YOU NEED TO DISCONNECT THE BATTERY FOR 5-10 MINUTES FOR FAULTS TO CLEAR COMPLETELY..HAVE SEEN THIS PROBLEM BEFORE AFTER REPLACING AN EGR VALVE..IT WAS A TECH TIP FROM CHRYSLER ENGINEERING..THE EGR VALVE WAS THE PROBLEM,BUT THE PCM WOULD NOT LET THE CODES GO EVEN AFTER CLEARING THEM WITH SCAN TOOL..ALSO CHECK CONNECTIONS AT EGR CONNECTOR FOR SPREAD PINS
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.
