The purpose of the EGR valve is to direct some of your exhaust gas right back into your intake. Hence the name: Exhaust Gas Recirculation. Sounds pretty ridiculous, huh? Well, exhaust gas actually helps your engine warm up more efficiently (so the valve is open when the block's cold), then the valve's supposed to shut off that exhaust intake when you're warm. If it stays open exhaust is always recirculated into the engine. It would be like taking your air filter off and driving continuously through a tunnel filled with exhaust. Nice, huh? The life, gas mileage, and horsepower of your engine are all reduced.

Then they will repossess the wrecked vehicle, sell it for what they can get, apply that to the loan balance, and you will be responsible for the balance on the loan. They will sue you in court to get it and will win. Now if you continue to make the loan payments, then none of this will happen. Did you not have insurance on this vehicle?

They will probably run a "carfax" or similar title search on the vehicle prior to insuring it. If they don't ask you the question, "Is this a salvage vehicle?" you don't have to volunteer the information. If something were to happen to the vehicle and it became a total loss you could face fraud charges if you claimed more than you paid for the vehicle in an insurance claim.

WHAT HAPPEN IF A POLICE CONFISCATED A VEHICLE AND USED THE VEHICLE AS HIS/HER ON PERSONAL VEHICL If you could prove it (such as video or admitting it on audio) he could be prosecuted, THAT IS ILLEGAL hands down. If you were arrested then it goes to a tow yard or salvage yard for at least 30 days (in FL that i know of - and your vehicle literally cannot be touched). After that the tow or salvage yard that has the vehicle is allowed to sell/scrap it. At which time the officer can technically purchase it legally. But is highly unlikely to happen - let me know what happens
