Depends on the car. Try it and find out I guess. On older vehicles, yes you can. On newer ones, no. Reason: Today's cars are completely computer controlled and if you take the EGR off the computer will know it and possibly even shut the engine down completely. On older cars, sure. Just pull and block the vacuum tube to the EGR and drive it. note: You will notice a small drop in gas mileage if you block the EGR. What can I say, they designed the engine to run with one.

Why does the engine light keep coming on indicating EGR valve in a 2000 Chevy impala after the EGR valve was replaced?

I just replaced my egr valve and my light went off, however some reasons for yours not to go off might be that the hose/pipe coming out to the eghaust manifold into the egr valve has enough deposits in it to cause a blockage.....signifying that your old egr valve was good, just not getting any unburned fuel to it. I don't know how to clean the blockage out so maybe search the net and see if you can find out how to do that. perhaps a carborator cleaner will work?

What is the function of an EGR Valve on a 88 Nissan sentra?

The EGR valve and the EGR sensor work together. The EGR gas temperature sensor is mounted near the EGR valve. The sensor detects the temperature of the exhaust as it moves through the valve. The information is sent to the ECM and in turn the EGR on/off time is regulated precisely and more efficiently. Any malfunction with the EGR gas temperature sensor will set off a code 35 ( Info taken from HAYNES MANUAL)
