EGR on a 2001 Pontiac Aztek

I was wondering if were possible to change the EGR valve on my 2001 pontiac. I found the EGR, but am not sure how to go about disconnecting and reconnecting a new one. It is buried behind the engine block. Any help would be greatly appreciated

The location of the EGR valve makes its replacement tough. There are many surrounding parts that have to be removed. You need to remove the transaxle dipstick and tube assembly. The EGR valve is attached to it and in order to take it off, you have to remove the air box so that you can reach the bottom of the dipstick tube, which is behind the engine. I think you'll find it difficult to replace the EGR valve on your own.

System scan of codes show EGR valve needs replacement on Pontiac aztek 2001 however I don't know where to locate it can anyone help me.


there are many codes that relate to the egr, like low flow, unresponsive, possition sensor..... Like dave said it is best to know the code if it is a low flow code it could be from a intake leak or could have the passage clogged with carbon. but to answer your question it is mounted on the back side of the intake on the drivers side, it is an electronic egr valve/ soliniod . about the size of a small orange juice can , electric connector is on top and bolts to the intake and has a "tube" that goes down to the exhaust manifold in rear.

2001 pontiac aztek egr vavle replacement


Hello. I used to work in a GM dealer. It is seldom the EGR valve that is the problem. If it is code P1404, the problem is a PCM calibration. Take it to a local dealer and they can reflash the PCM. If you want to get technical about it, the PCM is and emission control device and should be covered by warranty for 8 years or 80,000 miles.
