It depends on the engine size, number of valves in the head, and difficulty of head removal. Typical repair procedure is to remove the head, replace all the valves and valve seals. This ensures the best and most dependable repair. I would guess it will run you anywhere between $600.00-$750.00 for a basic 4 cylinder engine; higher performance 4 cylinder engines will cost more. V-6 & V-8 engines usally run higher because they have 2 heads and both need to be done. Ballpark figure $600.00-$1000.00 or more.

What does the egr valve on a 1998 tracker do?

EGR valve is Exhaust Gas Recirculation valve that recirculates exhaust gas through the intake manifold to improve emissions. Typically this valve has a electric connector and harness that is computer controlled. If this valve is faulty, it will cause a check engine light to appear, or a service engine light. In some cases, it will make the vehicle run roughly. Does that help you?

How do you replace the EGR valve on a 1998 Mercury Mountaineer AWD vehicle?

I believe it is at the top rear of the engine (between engine and firewall, just left of center (passenger side). You have to remove (2) bolts (bolted in from the back, toward the front of the vehicle), next, remove the EGR tube nut that goes to the bottom of the valve. Typically, the valve does not go bad. You can test the EGR valve by removing the vacuum connector from the top of the valve, and add vacuum to the top of the valve. If the valve works, the engine will shudder when vacuum is applied. Typically EGR problems on these are caused by the DPFE senser that is located next (toward driver's side)to the EGR valve. It also bolts in from the back with two small bolts, and has (2) vacuum hoses connected to the bottm of the switch.

Could leaky vale covers cause bad head gasket signs?

If the valve cover is leaking it may let oil flow down the head and make the Head gasket appear to be leaking. Clean the engine and then use oil dye or watch for leaks. If there is a coolant leak it is not the valve cover.
