Look on Auto Zone's website for a picture of the EGR valve....usually located near the top rear of the engine. You can try cleaning the EGR with some carburetor cleaner as they usually get pretty fouled up with carbon deposits, just remember to replace the gasket when after you remove it. If cleaning the EGR does not help, you may need to replace it.

Check engine light is on took it to auto zone they said it was my egr valve and i replaced it and check engine light still on........ is it any other sensor that, the egr could have trigger


The check engine light will not go out on its own until usually after 20 or so starts.You need to back to Auto zone and have them hook up the analyzer again and clear the codes (they will do this for free). If the problem was your EGR valve, the light will then go out.

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. It looks like this.9d42c16.jpg

Check engine light comes on and off, auto zone test read back EGR flow insufficient/manufact.specif.DTC/see service manual.what does any of that mean?HONDA ACCORD 4CYL.2001


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. When the EGR valve goes bad, it must be replaced.

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 acceleration.

Here is a picture of where the EGR Valve is located (Accord 1999). Replacing it is fairly simple and straightforward. A vacuum line and a couple of bolts. You'll see what you have to do when you look at it.

If you are replacing the EGR Valve due to the Check Engine Light (MIL) being on with a DTC P0401 then I suggest contacting your Honda Dealer. There was a Product Update Campaign (PUD) in the fall of 1999 that corrected the problem.

Another times, the clean is the solution...I hope help yoiu with this. Good luck, and remember rated this help.

Location of EGR valve on 2005 Dodge Durango


If I had been him, I would have talked you into a Chilton or Haynes manual for your car. They are easily detailed enough to show you the location and  Iwould be surprised if a chain operation like AZ didn't have the right one on hand.

Per Auto Zone, the EGR value needs to be replaced (check engine light is on). Where is the value located and should I try to remove it and clean it? Is there any other items suspect for replacement with...


The EGR valve is located on the intake manifold, it has a single vacuum line going to it, are you sure it is the valve and not the vacuum control valve that opens and closes the EGR? You provided no year or trouble code, so hope this answer is correct.

Number 4 cylinder is the 2nd cylinder back on the driver side. Check to see if your EGR valve is clogged with carbon. If it is, clean it out and I like to remove the EGR tube from the exhaust to valve and clean it out as well. The EGR tube is a metal tube. Remove the spark plug and see if it's been firing. How long has it been since it's had a set of plugs and wires?
