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.

    How can I change the egr valve on my 95 lincoln towncar myself


    The EGR valve is located on the rear right area of the intake manifold. The egr valve connected to the right exhaust manifold.It is connected via a metal tube. The valve and the tube has to be removed as an assembly, and separated once it is off the car. The EGR stands for Exhaust Gas Recirculation. It is part of the vehicle emissions system.There are generally three parts to the EGR system: the EGR Valve, an actuator solenoid, and a pressure sensor EGR (DPFE). These things work together.They are easily cleaned by removing the cover on the rear of the intake manifold. these ports are small, and easily clogged by carbon, and oil residue.There are two ways to replace the egr valve. To replace the EGR valve get ahold of a 11mm Gear Wrench and do it from the top. Or If you have a lift, the jack up the vehicle of jack stands and you can drop the exhaust from the bottom and get it that way. -------------- Keep updated for any further queries.Thanks.

    Just replaced EGR hose & valve copver gaskets on 2002 Ford Escape 4WD. Did test drive, runs really rough & almost stops & cuts off. Any ideas?


    OK, if you replaced the EGR hose, did you go all the way to change the EGR Valve? A stuck open EGR Valve can cause a rough idle and almost make it cut off.
    Also, a vacuum leak on the EGR valve can cause a rough idle.

    prev.gif next.gif Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) Valve Removal & Installation 2.0L Zetec Engine NOTE: When the EGR tube is disconnected from the EGR valve, it must be discarded and a new EGR tube must be installed. The aluminum threads on the EGR valve must be inspected, and a new EGR valve installed if the threads are damaged.
    To Remove:
    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    2. Remove and discard the exhaust manifold-to-EGR tube. Use the following as a guide:
    3. Raise and safely support the vehicle
    4. Remove the splash shield
    5. Disconnect the EGR tube fitting
    6. Lower the vehicle
    7. Remove the air cleaner outlet pipe
    8. Disconnect the EGR tube from the EGR valve.
    9. Detach the vacuum line and remove the two retainer bolts.
    NOTE: The EGR valve sealing surfaces are soft metals and easily damaged.
    To Install:
    1. Installation is a reverse of the removal process. Carefully clean all sealing surfaces and install a new EGR valve gasket.
    2. Install a new EGR valve tube.

    1998 ford escort code P0401 I need to know what this code is for. Thank You.


    This code is an EGR code for insufficient amount of egr. It could be that the egr tube is clogged or the egr itself is bad or there is not enough vacuum to open the egr properly. There is also a sensor called the DPFE(differential pressure feedback egr) is faulty.

    R&R EGR Valve 97 Nissan . After replacing the plugs, cap & rotor and wires the vehicle still runs rough stalls when turning it is 5 speed. All that to say, I was told to replace EGR Valve I can see...


    It takes a 17 mm wrench to losen the tubing on both sides of the valve. Then it is a matter of unmounting the bracket and pulling off the vacuum line. Make sure that you losen both lines BEFORE unmounting the bracket or you will never get it off. Sometimes getting the tube fitting (flare nut) loose requires a flare nut spanner wrench. Some EGR vlaves on have one flare unt and have gasket under the EGR valve where it mates to the manifold. Make sure you replace the gasket if yours has one.

    (flare nut spanner wrench)
    http://t3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:JXlnPyZf9DSRLM:http://www.samstagsales.com/images/sw24-11x13.jpg

    I also recommend that you use a long piece of solid copper wire #10 to push through the tubes to remove the carbon build up.

    It really is a matter of time. The most difficult thing about changing an EGR valve is getting the flare nut(s) loose.

    Thanks for using FixYa.

    How to remove egr valve on 1997 lincoln towncar


    The EGR valve can be replaced by using a pipe wrench, or a standard wrench to remove the fitting over the pipe going into the EGR valve... it's not too hard to replace, I've done it on mine myself... I have a 97 town car as well... the only problem is that my EGR valve was fine, but the computer told me it was bad... But I found out that the EGR sensor was bad, not the valve... now to replace the EGR sensor you need to remove the engine... FORD in their infinite wisdom decided to put the EGR sensor on the rear of the engine, half way down next to the firewall...

    My mechanic said that as long as the car is running fine, I souldnt worry about the EGR sensor, its job is to tell me when the EGR valve is bad...

    Hope this helps
