SOURCE: egr valve dodge durango

if this is a 4.7l engine, the valve is on the left rear of the intake. loosen the 8mm bolts that hold the egr intake tube to the egr valve, remove the egr bolts, disconnect wiring, remove valve and tube together, attach intake tube loosely to new valve, install new valve, tighten tube bolts to egr using a swivel socket, this is not a 5 minute job, so dont attempt unless you have some time and patience.

SOURCE: egr valve location on dodge ram 2005 4.7

The EGR, or exhaust gas recirculation valve, takes inert exhaust gasses drawn from the exhaust system and reintroduces them into the combustion chamber through the intake manifold. This process lowers the peak combustion temperature and helps combat the formation of Nitrous Oxide (NOx) in the exhaust.

  1. Separate the intake ducts from the air cleaner assembly by loosening the retaining clamps and pulling the ducts away from the housing.
  2. Disconnect the vacuum line from the air cleaner assembly.
  3. Remove the wing nut that secures the air cleaner housing lid to the base.
  4. Remove both the air cleaner hosing lid and base.
  5. Locate the EGR valve. Look at the front of intake manifold. The EGR valve will be bolted to the intake manifold just in front of the carburetor.
I hope help you with this. Good luck.

EGR valves were a common failure item for the 05 Caravans. Ours died at 42k miles.

The sensor and valve are serviced as a unit. Expect to pay $150-200 to have it done, or you can DIY or less than $100.

Code p0406 dodge grand caravan 3.8 engine. Is it the EGR valve or the O2 sensor?


P406 is a EGR code, EGR will also cause a knocking/ pinging sound when there bad. Very common problem. The position sensor inside the valve goes bad. Your going to have to replace the whole EGR valve and it can put out variety of codes from P0401 to P0406. The new valve will solve the problem and easy to replace, you can pick one up at Auto Zone and they can give you the step by step instructions to replacing the EGR with common tools. Good luck and hope this helps.
