SOURCE: Location of EGR Valve

Found the info!!

This Dodge EGR valve is a certain kind of device that is mounted right on your intake manifold which controls the amount of exhaust gasses back into your engine.
On a 2005 Dakota with 4.7 liter engine (non-HO), the EGR valve is located near the intake manifold on the driver's side right up against the firewall. It's hard to spot as it sits lower than the intake manifold. To change it, remove the electrical connector. There's a red tab that needs to be pushed to one side and then you have to squeeze down on a tab to get it free. Using a 13 mm socket, remove the bolt that you can see. I had to use a 3 inch wobble extention and then a 8 inch extension with a deep well socket to reach it with my 3/8 inch ratchet. There's a second bolt that you can't see between the EGR valve and the firewall. With a little trial and error and a lot more luck, you can reach the hidden bolt with the 3 inch wobble extension and a 13 mm deep well socket. Attach the ratchet after the socket is on and remove. This one isn't easy and if there's any Dodge engineers reading this one, a couple of extra inches of clearance between the valve and the firewall wouldn't have killed you no matter what the cost accountants said. With both bolts removed, you should be able to pull out the metal pipe that connects the manifold to the EGR valve out of the manifold (Pull to the right) and then you can lift the valve out. For assembly, the metal pipe connecting the intake manifold the EGR valve has to be removed and reinstalled on the new valve. It's held on with 2 5/16th" bolts. You should put the rear bolt on tight, but leave the front bold loose for the reinstall as some adjustment is necessary to get it put back together and the rear is a pain to tighten when installed. Line up the bolts that attach the valve and get the rear 13 mm bolt (The one you couldn't see on disassembly) started. Do not start the other 13 mm bolt as you'll need to pivot the valve and pipe to the left in order to reinsert the pipe into the intake manifold. Once the pipe is in the intake manifold. Start the other 13 mm bolt and tighten both 13 mm bolts and then the 5/16" bolts holding the pipe onto the valve. Reinstall the electrical connection. Please don't forget to rate!!!!

SOURCE: EGR Valve needs cleaning or replacing

The link below is a diagram of the EGR valve. Looks like a mushroom with vacuum lines attached.

http://www.chiltonlibrary.com/content/images/8666/images/86664018.gif

Instructions:

  • Label and disconnect the hoses from the valve. Carefully loosen and remove the retaining bolts, remembering that they are probably heat-seized and rusty. Use penetrating oil freely.
  • Remove the valve and clean the gasket remains from both mating surfaces.
  • Inspect the valve for any sign of carbon deposits or other cause of binding or sticking. The valve must close and seal properly; the pintle area may be cleaned with solvent to remove soot and carbon.

  • I hope this answers your question. Best of luck.

    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.

    How do I blank off egr valve on a 2007 suzuki grand vitara


    which engine? of the many? (open hood and see?)
    it needs to be cleaned.
    and will fail EGR tests. and glow the CEL and throw EGR , DTC errors for ever and then smog fails and then the smog station fails you.

    when you start the modern car, the PCM , resets the EGR to its closed position, if it cant do that (it can tell) it then cycles it to
    clear any jams, my guess, is its sticking, so do as all mech do
    world wide we clean it. (most cars its a 50,000 mile service point
    which i guess, you skipped.)

    ill not answer, blank pff. , as it's to simple,
    cut a plate, drill hole, bolt it on. what part the , cutting or hole drilling is unknown?

    Remove the throttle body housing on the top of the intake, it is a 90 degree tunnel like small piece held by 4 small bolts, turn it over and look for two holes, these holes are for the EGR valve flow, they are probably plugged up with carboned crud, clean them out with the tip of a screwdriver if neccessary to remove all the crud, once its clean reinstall it and reset your check engine light, hope this helps, let me know

    Egr flow insufficient


    Check for

    vacuum leaks on intake manifold,

    the air tube between the air filter.

    intake manifold vacuum hose.

    ===
    clean throttle plate with Berryman carburator cleaner

    SEE sample picture HERE
    ===

    Also remove carbon built up behind the EGR valve and the EGR passage tube.

    ===

    Vacuum leak WILL offset the intended 14.7 to 1 air fuel ratio.

    More un-metered air (leaks) will lean out the fuel mixture.

    Use small amount of Berryman carb clearer at potential air leak area will help you identify trouble spot.

    At idle,just spray and listen for the RPM surge.

    The in-rush of carb clearer will increase the RPM on the motor.

    Record the problem spot(s) and address it later.

    ===

    EGR carbon built up require 2+ hours to clean from start to finish.

    You will need a new EGR base gasket before your start.

    Locate and remove the EGR valve after the vehicle is cool down.

    Carefully record the connector and vacuum line (for older vehicle) location by drawing an easily to follow diagram.

    Remove the EGR valve.

    Inspect the location of the carbon built-up inside the valve and the EGR passage tube.

    SOAK these areas with WD-40 spary.

    You will need a small screwdriver,cloth hanger and lot of newspaper and time to get this cleaning done right.

    RE-SOAK the carbon and let it sit for over-night will also help.

    One the last round,pass a shop vacuum of the EGR valve and the passage pipe.

    Install the new EGR gasket and connectors.

    Allow the vehicle to warm up outdoor to burn up any remaining WD-40.


    Take it for a test drive.

    Egr vavle


    The EGR valve is located right behind the multi port. ( the black plastic on top of the engine. it is kinda difficult to remove it if you have no experience with) I don't think is serviceable but some folks I know had told me that once removed, you can clean it with carburetor cleaner. the valve runs about 215 Dlls. at your local autoparts store.
