The kit that is needed to fix the problem is part number 89018176 (EGR replacement kit). If the EGR valve is the updated, remanufactured Siemans version than to just replace the EGR pipe will require part # 12602507. To replace the original EGR pipe that came factory installed on your vehicle (designed & manufactured by Delphi) had a major falw and is no longer available ANYWHERE! Trust me I have looked! Once the EGR replacement kit is in place have to vehicle computer reprogrammed by a dealer and you should be good to go!Good luck!

    My 2005 Equinox has a broken EGR tube, I need to get a replacement tube. Can you please get me the part number?

    My tube broke several years ago. The original tube is longer than the replacement. Evidently the GM was unable to make a long tube that would not break. You have a long tube if the input of the EGR (where the tube connects) is higher than the output (where the EGR connects to the intake manifold). If you have the longer tube, you must purchase a replacement from GM which is $200 and includes the short tube, new design EGR valve and a new connector to replace the old EGR electrical connector.

    Two bolts and a pipe that needs to come off. Pipe that runs to exhaust is hardest to get loose. Might need to soak in anti-rust, or heat up. 2005 mabey it won't be so bad. You can register for free and view a full free online repair manual for your vehicle with all the info you could need at

    My EGR Tube is broken in half.

    A solution to this might be to call a junk yard and see if you can get one that way...To install it there is a bolt up by the EGR valve and a bolt down by the exhaust manifold. Take the bolts out pull the pipe out and put a new pipe in - real easy job to do :)

    How to remove egr valve on 1997 lincoln towncar

    The EGR valve can be replaced by using a pipe wrench, or a standard wrench to remove the fitting over the pipe going into the EGR valve... it's not too hard to replace, I've done it on mine myself... I have a 97 town car as well... the only problem is that my EGR valve was fine, but the computer told me it was bad... But I found out that the EGR sensor was bad, not the valve... now to replace the EGR sensor you need to remove the engine... FORD in their infinite wisdom decided to put the EGR sensor on the rear of the engine, half way down next to the firewall...

    My mechanic said that as long as the car is running fine, I souldnt worry about the EGR sensor, its job is to tell me when the EGR valve is bad...

    Hope this helps
