Will a egr valve cause rough idle


Yes the car won't run properly with a bad EGR valve and will use a lot more gas as well.

You must have an egr valve for this engine to work.Sounds like you are getting oil blow-by combustion causing carbon in the exhaust which may do due to a faulty crankcase ventilation valve, bad piston rings, etc. Whatever the cause, oil combustion produces the carbon, and you will need to fix that.

Idle is rough


Spark Plugs have to be changed every 3 years
Front Oxygen Sensors changed every 100,000 miles
Can't have any Vacuum Leaks -- anywhere on the vehicle
Need to have it road tested with a Professional Scan Tool
& look at all data & get caught up on Preventative Maintenance
Very few people change motor oil 3 or 4 times a year, if at all,
and the Variable Cam Actuators fail, as a result,that & few other
things can cause rough running engine & resulting idle issues
It's well known that Ford COP Ignition Coils fail sometime in
every year of ownership

Rough idle 95 astro van, I did a full tune up , plugs,wires,cap, rotor,air filter,and fuel filter and cleaned egr vavle.


I actually had to replace my EGR valve and the gasket. I clean the valve well and reused both. I don't think the gasket sealed well enough though. So I went ahead and got a new valve, gasket and changed them. It runs a lot smoother now.

Yes it could cause that. the EGR is near the rear of the engine, if it is leaking it will sizzle water when you touch it with wet fingers.

My 91 oldsmobile 98 runs rough in idle but when driving run smooth.


Rough idle is a very common problem on 4 cylinders, but I believe the 98 Regency has a 6 cylinder in it, right?

Sometimes the coil packs get iffy, and sometimes the EGR Valve gets a leak in it causing a rough idle.

When the accelerator pedal is depressed, it can change things so that the engine seems to run smoothly.

However, I would look for codes to see if anything intermittent is occurring in the engine that may need attention.

The OBD-I scanner can help to diagnose the problem, if anything is out of specifications on the engine in question.

The owner will have to find a technician that has such a scanner.
