Best Answer

the EGR valve is located on top of the motor at the intake manifold. It is secured by (2) bolts and a large pipe underneath that needs to be loosened first. I suggest spraying on some rust disolver and waiting about 20 min. before starting. Use an adjustable crescent type wrench to loosen this nut. Once it is free then you loosent he other (2) bolts and unplug the sensor wire. Assembly is just inreverse of what was explained. By the way, doing it yourself will save you a lot of money. The dealers charge up to $200.00 and you can buy the valve for about $39.00 from a car parts store and have it in yourself in about 45 minutes.
