Chrysler Concorde 1993-1997 3.5L MFI 6cyl
Exhaust Gas Recirculation System

This system reduces the amount of oxides of nitrogen (NO x ) in the exhaust by allowing a predetermined amount of exhaust gases to recirculate and dilute the incoming fuel/air mixture. The diluted air/fuel mixture reduces peak flame temperature during combustion, which in turn inhibits the production of Nitrogen oxides. The principal components of the system are:
- EGR tube (connects a passage in the intake manifold to the exhaust manifold)
- EGR valve
- Electronic EGR Transducer
- Vacuum hoses

Component and System Testing

  1. Check the condition of all of the EGR system hoses and tubes for leaks, hardening or kinks on the rubber hoses. Repair and correct these conditions before proceeding any testing.
  2. Be sure that the hoses at both of the EGR valve and EGR valve control are connected to the proper fittings.
  3. Be sure the electrical connector is firmly attached at the valve control.
  4. To check the EGR system operation, connect the DRB III scan tool or equivalent to the 16-way data link connector. The data link connector is located on the lower edge of the instrument panel near the steering column. Follow the scan tool instructions.
  5. After checking the system with the DRB III scan tool, proceed to the EGR valve leak and control tests, then repair as necessary.

Loosen, but do not remove, the EGR tube to intake manifold screws

The EGR valve attaches to the rear of the right cylinder head.
  1. Remove the vacuum tube from the electric EGR transducer solenoid. Inspect the vacuum lines for cracking, poor seal due to hardness, or other problems. Replace with new hoses if necessary.
  2. Remove the electrical connector from the solenoid.
  3. Slide the transducer up and out of the mounting bracket.
  4. Loosen, but do not remove, the EGR tube to the intake manifold screws.
  5. Remove the EGR tube lower screws at the valve.
  6. Remove the EGR valve and transducer.
  7. Clean both gasket surfaces and check for any signs of leakage or cracks. Replace the components if any such damage is found or if the valve fails the tests.

To install:
  1. Loosely install the EGR valve and a new gasket onto the cylinder head.
  2. Using a new gasket, attach the EGR tube to the valve and tighten the screws to 95 inch lbs. (11 Nm).
  3. Tighten the EGR tube to the intake manifold plenum screws to 16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm).
  4. Tighten the EGR valve to the cylinder head screws to 16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm).
  5. Reconnect the transducer solenoid to the vacuum fitting on the manifold.
  6. Slide the transducer into the bracket.
  7. Reconnect the vacuum lines and electrical wires to the EGR transducer.

    EGR Tube

    EGR tube used on the 3.5L engine

    Be sure to have the insulation snug against the back of the wiring harness when installing the EGR tube-3.5L engine

    The EGR tube attaches to both sides of the intake manifold plenum and the EGR valve.

    1. Remove the air cleaner plenum from the rear of the engine.

    2. Remove the EGR tube and valve screws.

    3. Remove the tube-to-intake plenum screws.

    4. Remove the EGR tube. Discard the old gaskets.

    5. Clean the gaskets surfaces.

    To install:

    1. Loosely install the EGR tube to the EGR valve screws. Finger-tighten the EGR tube mounting screws.

    2. Tighten the EGR tube to the EGR valve screws to 95 inch lbs. (11 Nm).

    3. Tighten the EGR tube to the intake manifold plenum screws to 16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm).

    4. Ensure that the insulation on the EGR tube aligns with and
      contacts the insulation on the vacuum harness at the rear of the engine.

    I hope help you with this; remember rated this help. Good luck.

I'm sorry but if you had avoerheated it is probably the head gaskets. But also check the heater hoses and the bypass in the top front of the engine.

Why does my 1997 chrysler town and country idles high?

Check the iac idle air control valve or the egr valve which doesnt always need replacing just a simple carb cleaning. If you clean the egr valve replace the o2s it is surely next to go. There can be 2 one on the manifold amd n the other by the cat.

I have a 1999 Chrysler Concorde and it shuts down while driving but if I keep foot on gas sometimes it will start back up. Sometimes I have to kick into neutral and use key to start. Any ideas? My friend...

Have an auto parts store read the code (providing the CEI light on the dash is on). They could recommend the right parts based on the code you have. If it is the EGR Valve, they are easy to replace.

Replaced egr valve after code p0406 and still getting code and stalling and spitter sputtering when it occurs , but it only happens once car gets hot at certain temp

The code problem is related to the EGR valve but not necessarily the valve itself. There is a high input in valve position sensor that can be the sensor ---wiring short to positive and ECM. Check the connections for moisture and are not shorting out. Check that the wiring is not touching any hot parts of the motor and has burnt through

1997 Chrysler Concorde Lx problem code from Advanced Auto was P1698 and it said to check with manufacturer. They dont know either, computer does not go back that far. What does this mean?

no message received from the transmission control module. The bus system is the communication system the computers use to send information back and forth. Anything from a bad fuse, bad wire, or a faulty computer can cause that code.

Engine error lite P0465

Replacing the EGR valve, its actuator, or your DPFE sensor could all be at fault. I would probably start with the valve itself since it's an EGR leak code. Your gas cap was a wasted repair. The gas cap would cause a P0441 or 445 evap code, but not an EGR code.

You dont, carb cleaner only removes gunk, where an EGR valve is full of hardened carbon.
