How do you replace the egr valve on a 96 mercury mystique ls v6?

Pretty easy actually. The egr valve is that flyin' saucer

lookin' thing on top of the engine next to the Upper Intake

Manifold. You'll see it back near the firewall of the engine bay on

the driver side. Should be two bolts holding it onto the UIM, and

perhaps a larger nut on the underside, I'm not certain. It is very

rare for the EGR valve to need replacement in these cars. Try

searching for the Check Engine Light code on a contour web site

& you should find plenty of info on how to fix your problem

with minimal fuss. Typical causes for emissions related CELs are

the DPFE sensor (easy fix), cleaning out the EGR passages behind

the throttle body (easy fix), often both.
