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

    Hi:
    Where is the EGR Valve located. I just bought as 97 Lincoln and am getting very poor gas
    mileage. I was told that the EGR valve may need to be replace to improve gas mileage.
    I am running 19 miles to the gallon on the highway. In the city, I think at times I am just running
    from gas station to gas station.
    Thanks for any help.

1988 lincoln towncar with codes 32,41& 91 when running, what could be the causes and possibly fixes to correct problem?


For code 31 you probably will need to replace the EGR valve and PFE sensor. (PFE sensor screws onto the EGR valve)
Code 41 and 91 is for the drivers side hego sensor (oxygen sensor in the exhaust) Replacing it will probably fix both those codes.

1990 lincoln towncar runs rough and wont idle. could it be egr valve


What you may find will help is to remove the air horn and clean a passage leading to the EGR valve. The passage should be at the base of the airhorn and underneath the gasket. There should be 8 bolts and a $10 gasket to change.

Your car type is set for a 1990 LeSabre and the written part indicates a Towncar. My fix is for the Towncar.

I have a 1995 lincoln towncar. It runs great until it warms up it. Then it starts to sputter and stall, I have done plugs wires and coil packs to fix a skip in the motor. That worked, now I have the new...


Try replacing your Idle Air Control valve. I am a former Ford tech and have two LTC's a 94 and a 96. I have had to do this job on both. When they get up in miles, the IAC valve gets carboned up and can't adjust the air/fuel intake mixture under load. If you still have a stalling issue after that, then you will probably have to replace the EGR valve as well. But it is very important that you start the engine with the old EGR valve removed so you can blow any carbon balls out of the EGR passage before installing the new EGR valve. Otherwise you will just end up plugging and ruining the new EGR valve and have the same stalling issue. Good luck!

After scanning my 91 lincoln towncar code 327 shows .plus car will hardly stay at a idle and dies when im driving 60 miles an hour it runs good but when i come to a stop it dies


Code 327 is caused by too low of a voltage signal.

Removing the throttle body and cleaning the passages behind it where gunk builds up can help.

But this code is suggesting you replace your DPFE Sensor.
If problem occurs intermittenly after that, then replace the EGR Valve.

Trying to look for the easiest way to inspect the pushrods and valve lifters on my 97 lincoln towncar


You dont have pushrods and lifters in that vehicle. That is an overhead cam model engine and the pushrods are done away with as the rocker arms run directly on the cam. You would have to remove the valve covers to inspect anything in there. You may also want to inspect your timing chain if you suspect something is amiss.

How can I change the egr valve on my 95 lincoln towncar myself


The EGR valve is located on the rear right area of the intake manifold. The egr valve connected to the right exhaust manifold.It is connected via a metal tube. The valve and the tube has to be removed as an assembly, and separated once it is off the car. The EGR stands for Exhaust Gas Recirculation. It is part of the vehicle emissions system.There are generally three parts to the EGR system: the EGR Valve, an actuator solenoid, and a pressure sensor EGR (DPFE). These things work together.They are easily cleaned by removing the cover on the rear of the intake manifold. these ports are small, and easily clogged by carbon, and oil residue.There are two ways to replace the egr valve. To replace the EGR valve get ahold of a 11mm Gear Wrench and do it from the top. Or If you have a lift, the jack up the vehicle of jack stands and you can drop the exhaust from the bottom and get it that way. -------------- Keep updated for any further queries.Thanks.
