The EGR valve is on top of the engine towards the driver's side. The assembly looks like a small canister with the top half crimped on, it has a large tube coming up from the exhaust, 1 electrical connector and red/black vacuum lines as well.

My CEL was on and I was getting horrible gas mileage. First I disconnected the battery. On top of the EGR valve there is a small plastic cover. After carefully removing this (mine was brittle) you can remove the sofe grey foam air filter. Mine was very dirty, I cleaned it with alcohol, let it dry and put it back on. I also removed all the electrical and vacuum lines and sprayed them with mass air flow sensor cleaner.

After getting it all together and reconnecting the battery the check engine light is off. Today I will drive it and see if the gas mileage has improved.

most likely not the fuel filter- try plugs and wires... could be a number of things, if the vehicle runs fine while in park and doesnt hesitate, most likely is sprk plugs and wires or a transmission problem...

2004 ford freestar only surges at 50 plus mph?


Sound like you may need a fuel tank OR a filler tube. First though you need to call FORD and see if they have a RECALL on the fuel tanks for this issue. This could be causing you surge as well, OR if you haven't already changed the EGR Valve I would suggest you fix both of these problems. Hope this helps and have an awesome day.

Egr valve replacemebt


It's bolted onto the intake, next to the throttle body. If you look into the engine compartment and see the oil dipstick, look up and to the right. It will have a steel tube coming up to it from the exhaust. Why do you want to replace it? They rarely fail. EGR problems (codes) on Fords are usually caused by the Differential pressure feedback sensor.
