Replace egr valve on 3.5 litre 215ci v6 how to?

  • Disconnect the car battery. Locate the EGR valve. You may need to refer to the owner's manual.
  • 2 Unhook the air supply hose, vacuum hose and all electrical connections. You may need the screwdriver for this.
  • 3 Remove the EGR mounting bolts with the socket wrench.
  • 4 Unbolt the EGR valve from the EGR tube with the wrench. Use a wide-mouthed wrench, which works best for this.
  • 5 Look at the EGR valve. If there are holes in the valve, it definitely needs to be replaced. If there are no holes, you may opt to clean it by spraying a half can of carburetor cleaner into the valve. Let it sit, then use a gasket scraper, putty knife, small drill bit or long wood screw to scrape out the buildup in the valve.
  • 6 Install a new gasket and EGR valve if a total replacement is due. Attach all hoses, wiring and bolts that were previously removed.
  • 7 Reconnect the battery and test drive the car.

  • if this helps you please give a good thumbs up rateing thanks have good day

    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.

    Low on engine oil

    Well, if there are no leaks, then it has to be piston rings or valve seals. If it's only burning a quart every 1500 miles, you would barely see any smoke, and by the standards of 20 or 30 years ago, that was normal.
