The egr valve is on the passenger side of the motor. It is a round canister at the back almost at the firewall.
Looking down on the engine, the EGR valve is to the right of the rocker cover, connected to the head.
behind your trotle body on top of your intake
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.
The egr valve is located on the drivers side of the engine on the rear of the intake manifold. Its held on by 2 bolts and has a vacuum line on the top of the diaphram.
On the driver side firewall next to the evap and brake booster
If you have an egr valve failure why are you replacing th oxygen sensor? Most likely the EGR valve assembly is blocked or partially blocked. Often they build up exhaust deposits on the EGR valve and ports.
Pull the black tube that connects to the top of the EGR valve itself and plug it with something. I used a metal coat hanger head but I recommend something metal that is non-flammable and straight.
On a 1996 Ford Explorer ( that has the 4.0 L EFI V6 engine ) the EGR valve is located on the drivers side of the engine beside the engine oil dipstick ( it is lower down and has a round top on it )
the egr valve is located on the back left side of the engine. getting to it is easier from underneath the car. (up on jacks). I had the same thing on a 96 mx-6. we canged the egr boost solinoid sensor located on the air intake box
you need to replace the egr valve it is located on top of the motor on the left side you need to replace the egr valve it is located on top of the motor on the left side. Most of the time it is the vacuum lines that come off the EGR valve that makes the check engine light come on. I changed my EGR valve and the engine light is still on with a code that said low vacuum check out full size bronco.com they can answer any question you have
The sesor is located in the egr valve which is in the center of the engine, on top. just to the left of the thermostsat/heater hose entering the engine
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.
on my 97 hardbody ka24e the egr is under the breather behind the throttle body to the left a bit. It is round metal and has a diphragm under it you can press up on to close the valve which is one of the tests to see if it is failing.
The EGR valve is located on the top of the intake manifold rearward of the throttle crank under the cowl. If you suspect a problem with the system, you may want to check the EGR control solenoid, the EGR control backpressure transducer and all vacuum hoses.
EGR should turn on Service Engine light on 96 and later. The tube / pipe to the exhaust manifold can also become blocked. EGR could cause rough engine. Many other possibilities.
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.
Maybe it's not closing all the way? I have a 96 roadmaster wagon and have been getting check engine light lately - code error is EGR related P0400. Found out there is service bulletin for corrosion problems with the valve.
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.
check that the vacuum hose is not clogged up
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.
i have the same truck and same code , it seems that there is a problem with the egr vsv electrical valve connected to the egr and it's not the modulator valve the one that looks similar to the egr but plastic this one has two hoses to it and an electrical connector
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.
I dont know what other egr valve will work, but I know they can be cleaned out and put back on the car. I have a 96 Paseo, and I soaked mine in carb cleaner and was able to get all the carbon out and put it back on the car and works fine.
not sure about the 96 but they are similar to the 97. On the 97 you remove the plastic cover, the EGR valve is located on the left side (standing in front of and facing the car) to the rear of the engine about the 11 oclock position.Answerit should be under warranty - there was a recall or something
