Usually, under the hood of the car is a sticker outlining the emissions control system for the engine. The guide should indicate if there is an EGR present and which side it's on. Otherwise, search on the VIN of the car or the specific model number of the gasket.

Have a 1996 toyota paseo I check the water level this morning and i went about 40 miles came to a stop and it shut down and had no water in radiator. Could it be the EGR value or the head gasket. Please...


It is not the EGR, it can be a head gasket, only a trained pro can check this and know for sure. You will need the system pressure tested and see if any of the cooling system components is leaking coolant.

Second time my head gaskets have gone can i swap to a different motor or how do i fix it so it will last 2006 f350 6 litres


Are you sure its the head gaskets..Most of the time its the EGR cooler and oil cooler..We have a fleet of about 60 of them..Out of 30 ,,29 of them were the coolers and only one was the head gaskets..When its the head gaskets,,it will blow water out of the jug...But both the coolers and the head gaskets will put steam out the exhaust..Drive kinda hard and let it sit overnight and then pull the EGR out and see if its gummy..Job security them 6.0

Where is the egr valve on a 2005 dodge 1500 5.7L


The electronic EGR valve and solenoid assembly (3) is attached to the front of the right cylinder head (1). An exhaust gas routing tube connects the EGR valve to the intake manifold.

Disconnect electrical connector (1) from EGR solenoid (2). Remove two bolts (3) connecting EGR tube (4) to valve assembly. Remove gasket located between EGR tube flange and EGR valve assembly.

Remove two mounting bolts (2). Separate valve assembly (3) from cylinder head (1). Remove and discard metal gasket located between cylinder head and valve assembly.
The new EGR valve will come with a new metal gasket. You can reuse the smaller gasket for the metal pipe going to the egr valve as long as its not damaged.

TY for using Fixya; remember rated this post.

Clicking noise when accelerating


It's hard to diagnose with just the small information you have stated, but it 'sounds' like it's that Exhaust Gas Recirculation Valve gasket.

In your cylinder head is a runner that brings exhaust gas up through the intake manifold.
The EGR valve is attached to the intake manifold, and the sensory part of the EGR valve sits down in the pathway of the runner.

A bad EGR valve gasket will let exhaust gasses escape, making the sound you described.
