SOURCE: CHANGE EGR VALVE

The EGR valve is up on the left hand side of the engine RIGHT next to the oil filler cap.

It has an electrical lead running to it, and there is a pipe running down to the exhaust pipe.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: FAILED EGR VALVE

The EGR valve helps your car more efficiently and completely burn fuel by recirculating a portion of your exhaust and running it through the combustion process again. This results in a cooler, more complete burn of the fuel which decreases you car's noxious emissions by prohibiting the formation of some harmful gases.

The EGR valve is vital to your car's emission controls.

When the EGR valve goes bad, it must be replaced - it cannot be repaired.

  • EGR Valve = Exhaust Gas Recirculation Valve.
  • The EGR valve controls formation of noxious emissions.
  • Rough idle and poor acceleration can be caused by a faulty EGR valve.

  • The EGR valve, or Exhaust Gas Recirculation valve, is a vacuum controlled valve which allows a specific amount of your exhaust back into the intake manifold. This exhaust mixes with the intake air and actually cools the combustion process. Cooler is always better inside your engine. The exhaust your EGR valve recirculates also prevents the formation of Nitrogen related gases. These are referred to as NOX emissions, and are a common cause for failing emissions testing. Unfortunately, your EGR valve can get stuck, causing NOX gases to build up. You'll know if your EGR valve is stuck or malfunctioning because your car will experience symptoms like rough idle and bucking on accelertaion.

    The only short term problem is a decrease in gas mileage - but it should really be replaced before sensors become sooted or your cat. convertor gets overworked prematurely.

    you should clean the egr first and see if that helps.
    egr is most likely your problem.
    its going to have a build up of carbon and sometimes it will be so restricted that your car cannot run.

    that will fix your problem i bet.
    good luck

    first get a pretest test done, then you will know what areas require attention, hc a co2, are indications of unburned fuel in the system, nox emissions are usually controlled by the egr valve, good plugs, filters, pcv valve, vacuum system , choke, fuel mixture, calatytic convertors, timing, engine temperature, exhaust integrety are all factors in emissions

    Need to know where the egr valve is located on a 2000 chevy silverado 1500 5.3 liter engine


    . The EGR valve is located in front of the oil filler neck. All you need to do is remove the electrical wire from the top of the valve, there is a clip on the connector so don't try and pull it off without lifting the clip. Once the wire has been disconnected, just unbolt the two bolts holding the EGR valve on. Thats it.

    Have you tried to replace the IAC (idle air control) valve?

    Another probable cause could be a stuck EGR solenoid. If this solenoid sticks open, it will send vaccuum to the EGR valve, which will open the EGR valve and flood the system with too much air and "snuff" the engine out. This problem only shows up at idle. The engine should run fine when driving. Please let me know if this helps.
