Question about 1997 Lincoln Town Car
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
