SOURCE: FAILED EGR VALVE

The EGR valve helps your car more efficiently and completely burn fuel by recirculating a portion of your exhaust and running it through the combustion process again. This results in a cooler, more complete burn of the fuel which decreases you car's noxious emissions by prohibiting the formation of some harmful gases.

The EGR valve is vital to your car's emission controls.

When the EGR valve goes bad, it must be replaced - it cannot be repaired.

  • EGR Valve = Exhaust Gas Recirculation Valve.
  • The EGR valve controls formation of noxious emissions.
  • Rough idle and poor acceleration can be caused by a faulty EGR valve.

  • The EGR valve, or Exhaust Gas Recirculation valve, is a vacuum controlled valve which allows a specific amount of your exhaust back into the intake manifold. This exhaust mixes with the intake air and actually cools the combustion process. Cooler is always better inside your engine. The exhaust your EGR valve recirculates also prevents the formation of Nitrogen related gases. These are referred to as NOX emissions, and are a common cause for failing emissions testing. Unfortunately, your EGR valve can get stuck, causing NOX gases to build up. You'll know if your EGR valve is stuck or malfunctioning because your car will experience symptoms like rough idle and bucking on accelertaion.

    The only short term problem is a decrease in gas mileage - but it should really be replaced before sensors become sooted or your cat. convertor gets overworked prematurely.

    Mine was doing that also.. We changed the two EGR valves, changed spark plugs and wires, and finally cleaned the Mass Air flow Sensor with carburetor cleaner. That seemed to helped the most.

    Is there any other way I can clean the egr valve with out taking it off?


    It will probably fail after a few years ,so why go to all that trouble. Got to come off,then you most likely can't clean it,depending on the type of valve.

    Egr valve replacement


    two bolts and a vacuum line will take the EGR valve out .. then when you have it out you can look down there where it came out and see if it needs cleaned or not .. Probably not.. The EGR valve sometimes goes bad and causes your car to stall at stop signs or when you just let off of it... holler if you need more Jerry

    I need to replace the EGR valve.


    No need to remove or move the alternator. You can get on the 10mm bolt with a short 1/4" socket and ratchet. Take the EGR tube off first, be careful not to lose the tube to EGR valve gasket. I usually use anti-seize when I put the EGR valve back on. That would be the mount bolts for the valve and the tube.
