Where is the egr valve on the V-6 Engine?

Not easy to see, but on drivers side of engine underneath intake manifold, so look for airflow intake tube, the larger air tube, and it is just below and to the firewall about middle of engine top to bottom. Hose comes out of it and two bolts hold it in, pretty easy to see once you know where it is located, but difficult to change. Sometimes just cleaning hose out will solve problem. Worth a try to buy EGR cleaner and spray and run a wire inside hose to loosen up carbon.

if you can turn a wrench egr valves are easy just go to the library and look it up in the manual for your car and see if your skills are up to it.

R&R EGR Valve 97 Nissan . After replacing the plugs, cap & rotor and wires the vehicle still runs rough stalls when turning it is 5 speed. All that to say, I was told to replace EGR Valve I can see...

It takes a 17 mm wrench to losen the tubing on both sides of the valve. Then it is a matter of unmounting the bracket and pulling off the vacuum line. Make sure that you losen both lines BEFORE unmounting the bracket or you will never get it off. Sometimes getting the tube fitting (flare nut) loose requires a flare nut spanner wrench. Some EGR vlaves on have one flare unt and have gasket under the EGR valve where it mates to the manifold. Make sure you replace the gasket if yours has one.

(flare nut spanner wrench)

I also recommend that you use a long piece of solid copper wire #10 to push through the tubes to remove the carbon build up.

It really is a matter of time. The most difficult thing about changing an EGR valve is getting the flare nut(s) loose.

Thanks for using FixYa.
