The EGR valve should be located towards the rear and center of the engine. Just remove the hoses and unbolt from the engine. Looks like a flying saucer or dashpot design

The EGR valve and electrical transducer should be replaced at the same time as they are matched. Remove EGR transducer from the air inlet duct. Disconnect vacuum supply tube from EGR transducer solenoid. Remove air inlet duct. Remove EGR tube to EGR valve screws. Remove EGR valve mounting screws. Remove EGR valve and transducer. Clean gasket surfaces. Discard old gaskets. If necessary, clean EGR passages. Loosely install EGR valve with new gaskets and finer tighten EGR tube fasteners. Tighten tube fasteners to 95 in lb, tighten EGR valve mounting screws to 200 in lb. Install air inlet duct. Connect vacuum supply tube to solenoid. Attach electrical connector to solenoid. Install EGR transducer onto air inlet duct.

How do you change the EGR valve on a 1997 Chevy Cavalier 2.2 L engine and is it something a reasonable person can do?

Well I have a '96 Cavalier with a 2.2 and I was actually looking at my EGR Valve today. Its actually very simple! I dont know if you know much about cars but if your looking at the motor from the front of the car, on the right hand side is the thermostat; right behind the thermostat is the EGR Valve. On the EGR valve is a plug. All you have to do is take that plug off of the top. Then on the EGR valve at the bottom is 2 bolts. Remove those bolts and pull off the existing EGR valve. If your new one didn't come with a gasket make sure not to ruin the old one. Now all you have to do is replace it the exact opposite way as taking it off. Its actually very simple. If you can remove two bolts then you can do it.

What causes high NOx on a 96 Honda Accord?

Check your EGR valve. I have a 95 Accord and failed with High NOx, double the limit. I replaced the EGR valve and cleaned the EGR ports on the intake, they are under the fuel rail. I passed on the second attempt. The ERG valve was 140.00. It took a few hours to scrape the carbon off the clogged ports, some carb cleaner helps.

Is there a way to clean the egr valve on a 1995 lumina instead of replacing it?

how to clean egr valvegood question. i have a 96 lumina and am suspectful of the egr valve in mine. i read that you can at least check to see if it is stuck open/closed. how you do this i don't know. i removed what i think is my egr valve and havent tried to take it apart. i did find star bit screw on the component that i can push in without any effort (there is obviously a spring inside cuz it pushes back out) . I'm thinking that this is a good sign also cleaning out the hoses that work with the egr valve should be part of the procedure.i could use help on this too.

96 cavalier intermittently dies when you stop then starts right up when you have the ac on then at times idling smoothly it almost doesnt seem like its running then other times its running super rough?

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. ProsThe EGR valve is vital to your car's emission controls.Cons When the EGR valve goes bad, it must be replaced.Description 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.

Explorer ltd 96 v6 4.0L. can a egr pump problem p0401 be reliated to 4th shift solenoid blocked - in otherword can the car computer refuse to shift on 4th P0761 if there is a egr valve problem. thanks?

P0401 is for insufficient EGR flow and P0761 is for the transmission shift solenoid 3 performance. They are not related and a bad or malfunctioning EGR valve would not set the transmission code.
