Don't know exactly what it looks like in this vehicle, but it always has to cross over between the exhaust and intake manifold. It gets hot, so it will be heat proof materials and tubing, that will show heat marks.
Usually it is a 2 bolt flange with a gasket.

But consider just plugging it off.
The EGR harms most engines.
It put deposits on the back side of the intake valves, which rip up the guides and guide seals.
The purpose is to poison the mixture in order to reduce the explosion temp so fewer Nox compounds produced, but the resulting reduction of power causes people to simply depress the gas pedal more, thus actually increasing pollution. But since they only check parts per million, and not total pollution, it will pass DEQ.
So I would only install it if you can't pass DEQ without it.

Fig. 4: Exploded view of the EGR system and related components for the 4.0L engine (click over pic for zoom)

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

PFE/DPFE Sensor
This component is found on all engines, and is also referred to as the backpressure transducer.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Detach and label the wiring harness connector from the PFE/DPFE sensor.
  3. Disconnect all of the hoses from the sensor.
  4. Remove the mounting nuts, then separate the sensor from the mounting bracket.
  5. If necessary, remove the EVR solenoid and the PFE/DPFE mounting bracket from the upper intake manifold.
To install:
  1. If removed, install the EVR solenoid and mounting bracket onto the upper intake manifold.
  2. If applicable, install the EGR tube heat shield.
  3. Position the PFE/DPFE sensor on the mounting bracket, then install and tighten the mounting nuts until snug.
  4. Attach all necessary hoses and wiring to the sensor.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.

EGR Vacuum Regulator (EVR) Solenoid
The EVR solenoid is mounted either on the same bracket as the PFE/DPFE sensor, attached to the upper intake manifold, or near the EGR valve on its own bracket.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Label and detach the wiring harness connector from the EVR solenoid.
  3. Detach the main emission vacuum control connector from the solenoid.
  4. Remove the retaining nuts, then separate the solenoid from the mounting bracket.
To install:
  1. Position the solenoid on its mounting bracket and install the retaining nuts.
  2. Attach the main emission vacuum control connector and the wiring harness connector to the EVR solenoid.
  3. Connect the negative battery cable.

EGR Valve
See Figures 6 and 7
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. If necessary, remove the air inlet tube from the throttle body and air cleaner housing.
  3. Label and detach all vacuum hoses from the EGR valve.
  4. Label and detach any electrical wiring harness connectors from the EGR valve.
  5. Disconnect the EGR valve-to-exhaust manifold tube from the EGR valve.
  6. Remove the EGR valve mounting fasteners, then separate the valve from the upper intake manifold.
  7. Remove and discard the old EGR valve gasket, and clean the gasket mating surfaces on the valve and the intake manifold.

zjlimited_988.jpg

Fig. 7: Cutaway view of a side entry type EGR valve

To install:

  1. Install the EGR valve, along with a new gasket, on the upper intake manifold, then install and tighten the mounting bolts to 4-22 ft. lbs. (20-30 Nm) on 3.8L engines, or to 106-49 inch lbs. (1-18 Nm) on 5.0L engines.
  2. Connect the EGR valve-to-exhaust manifold tube to the valve, then tighten the tube nut to 30 ft. lbs. (41 Nm).
  3. Connect all wiring or hoses to the EGR valve.
  4. Install the air inlet tube.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.


Hope this helps, good luck (remember to rate this comments).

Just replaced EGR hose & valve copver gaskets on 2002 Ford Escape 4WD. Did test drive, runs really rough & almost stops & cuts off. Any ideas?


OK, if you replaced the EGR hose, did you go all the way to change the EGR Valve? A stuck open EGR Valve can cause a rough idle and almost make it cut off.
Also, a vacuum leak on the EGR valve can cause a rough idle.

The aluminum threads on the EGR valve must be inspected, and a new EGR valve installed if the threads are damaged.
To Remove:
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove and discard the exhaust manifold-to-EGR tube. Use the following as a guide:
  3. Raise and safely support the vehicle
  4. Remove the splash shield
  5. Disconnect the EGR tube fitting
  6. Lower the vehicle
  7. Remove the air cleaner outlet pipe
  8. Disconnect the EGR tube from the EGR valve.
  9. Detach the vacuum line and remove the two retainer bolts.
NOTE: The EGR valve sealing surfaces are soft metals and easily damaged.
To Install:
  1. Installation is a reverse of the removal process. Carefully clean all sealing surfaces and install a new EGR valve gasket.
  2. Install a new EGR valve tube.

EGR Valve not working


EGR Valve Testing
  1. Install a tachometer on the engine, following the manufacturer's instructions.
  2. Detach the engine wiring harness connector from the Idle Air Control (IAC) solenoid.
  3. Disconnect and plug the vacuum supply hose from the EGR valve.
  4. Start the engine, then apply the parking brake, block the rear wheels and position the transmission in Neutral.
  5. Observe and note the idle speed.
If the engine will not idle with the IAC solenoid disconnected, provide an air bypass to the engine by slightly opening the throttle plate or by creating an intake vacuum leak. Do not allow the idle speed to exceed typical idle rpm.
Using a hand-held vacuum pump, slowly apply 5-10 in. Hg (17-34 kPa) of vacuum to the EGR valve nipple.
  1. If the idle speed drops more than 100 rpm with the vacuum applied and returns to normal after the vacuum is removed, the EGR valve is OK.
  2. If the idle speed does not drop more than 100 rpm with the vacuum applied and return to normal after the vacuum is removed, inspect the EGR valve for a blockage; clean it if a blockage is found. Replace the EGR valve if no blockage is found, or if cleaning the valve does not remedy the malfunction.

Check engine light on when check it insufficent EGR valve


yes the passages can be cleaned. They pass exhaust gas into the intake maniflod for reburning.

It could be the DPFE that controls the EGR too. Diff. Pressure Feedback EGR.

there is also a vacuum regulator valve and a solenoid too.
