SOURCE: Location of EGR Valve

Found the info!!

This Dodge EGR valve is a certain kind of device that is mounted right on your intake manifold which controls the amount of exhaust gasses back into your engine.
On a 2005 Dakota with 4.7 liter engine (non-HO), the EGR valve is located near the intake manifold on the driver's side right up against the firewall. It's hard to spot as it sits lower than the intake manifold. To change it, remove the electrical connector. There's a red tab that needs to be pushed to one side and then you have to squeeze down on a tab to get it free. Using a 13 mm socket, remove the bolt that you can see. I had to use a 3 inch wobble extention and then a 8 inch extension with a deep well socket to reach it with my 3/8 inch ratchet. There's a second bolt that you can't see between the EGR valve and the firewall. With a little trial and error and a lot more luck, you can reach the hidden bolt with the 3 inch wobble extension and a 13 mm deep well socket. Attach the ratchet after the socket is on and remove. This one isn't easy and if there's any Dodge engineers reading this one, a couple of extra inches of clearance between the valve and the firewall wouldn't have killed you no matter what the cost accountants said. With both bolts removed, you should be able to pull out the metal pipe that connects the manifold to the EGR valve out of the manifold (Pull to the right) and then you can lift the valve out. For assembly, the metal pipe connecting the intake manifold the EGR valve has to be removed and reinstalled on the new valve. It's held on with 2 5/16th" bolts. You should put the rear bolt on tight, but leave the front bold loose for the reinstall as some adjustment is necessary to get it put back together and the rear is a pain to tighten when installed. Line up the bolts that attach the valve and get the rear 13 mm bolt (The one you couldn't see on disassembly) started. Do not start the other 13 mm bolt as you'll need to pivot the valve and pipe to the left in order to reinsert the pipe into the intake manifold. Once the pipe is in the intake manifold. Start the other 13 mm bolt and tighten both 13 mm bolts and then the 5/16" bolts holding the pipe onto the valve. Reinstall the electrical connection. Please don't forget to rate!!!!

SOURCE: egr valve location on dodge ram 2005 4.7

The EGR, or exhaust gas recirculation valve, takes inert exhaust gasses drawn from the exhaust system and reintroduces them into the combustion chamber through the intake manifold. This process lowers the peak combustion temperature and helps combat the formation of Nitrous Oxide (NOx) in the exhaust.

  1. Separate the intake ducts from the air cleaner assembly by loosening the retaining clamps and pulling the ducts away from the housing.
  2. Disconnect the vacuum line from the air cleaner assembly.
  3. Remove the wing nut that secures the air cleaner housing lid to the base.
  4. Remove both the air cleaner hosing lid and base.
  5. Locate the EGR valve. Look at the front of intake manifold. The EGR valve will be bolted to the intake manifold just in front of the carburetor.
I hope help you with this. Good luck.

Hey greenlee99, your best bet would be to grab one these manuals so that you have pictures and diagrams along with step by step instructions. It will tell you what tools and parts you need. Can't go wrong with having it.

It can affect mileage, but it might not be the valve. EGR systems tends to get clogged by gunk. Take the valve off and see how dirty things are. If the system is clogged up, take apart as much as you can to clean it up. You can test the valve for operation with a good scanner (autozone doesn't do this--they just tell you the code). Here are instructions from autozone.com:

Linear EGR Valve Diagnosis
The linear EGR valve diagnosis procedure varies depending on the vehicle make and model year. Always follow the recommended procedure in the vehicle manufacturer's service manual. The scan tester may be used to diagnosis a linear EGR valve. The engine should be at normal operating temperature prior to EGR valve diagnosis. Since the linear EGR valve has an EVP sensor, the actual pintle position may be checked on the scan tester. The pintle position should not exceed 3% at idle speed. The scan tester may be operated to command a specific pintle position, such as 75%, and this commanded position should be achieved within two seconds. With the engine idling, select various pintle positions and check the actual pintle position. The pintle position should always be within 10% of the commanded position. When the linear EGR valve does not operate properly:
  • Check the fuse in the 12 V supply wire to the EGR valve.
  • Check for open circuits, grounds, and shorts in the wires connected from the EGR valve winding to the PCM.
  • Use a digital voltmeter to check for 5 v on the reference wire to the evp sensor.
  • Check for excessive resistance in the EVP sensor ground wire.
  • Leave the wiring harness connected to the valve, and remove the valve. Connect a digital voltmeter from the pintle position wire at the EGR valve to ground, and manually push the pintle upward. The voltmeter reading should change from approximately 1 V to 4.5 V.

If the EGR valve did not operate properly on the scan tester and tests 1 through 5 are satisfactory, replace the valve.

Here is what your valve looks like:

Where is the egr valve on a 2005 dodge 1500 5.7L


The electronic EGR valve and solenoid assembly (3) is attached to the front of the right cylinder head (1). An exhaust gas routing tube connects the EGR valve to the intake manifold.

2efe0f8.gif

Disconnect electrical connector (1) from EGR solenoid (2). Remove two bolts (3) connecting EGR tube (4) to valve assembly. Remove gasket located between EGR tube flange and EGR valve assembly.

Remove two mounting bolts (2). Separate valve assembly (3) from cylinder head (1). Remove and discard metal gasket located between cylinder head and valve assembly.
The new EGR valve will come with a new metal gasket. You can reuse the smaller gasket for the metal pipe going to the egr valve as long as its not damaged.

TY for using Fixya; remember rated this post.

Code P0402, on 2005 Freestyle. Where is the valve


I assume (based on the code) that you are referring to the egr valve. Here is a picture showing an EGR valve (not from the freestyle):http://i133.photobucket.com/albums/q48/tommyliuca/egr%20valve/1-1.jpg

The freestyles looked similar and is in a similar location. Looking at the engine from the front of the car, the EGR valve is to the right of the engine and a little further back (closer to the driver).

Let me know if you can find it, or if you need a picture of the freestyle's (I own a 2005 freestyle).
