You clean or replace it.
The only hard part is the EGR valve assembly. The head on the newer Saturn is slightly different, making it necessary to find a work-around for the EGR valve.
On the back of the head, just above the transmission bell housing,
There is no pressure sensor. The EGR valve is located on the head next to the battery. Cleaning it is usuallu the first step if there are any SES codes associated with the valve.
I'd start with the basics; see if there is a fuel leak.
EGR valve is located on the top of the motor, just to the right of your valve cover, in between the valve cover and the air intake tube. it has a 4-wire connector going to it. Besides the wire harness, the valve is held in by two 10mm bolts.
EGR is on the top of the engine next to the throttle body. If your looking at the engine from the front. It would be to the right of the black valve cover and to the back. That is the egr valve, from 1994 and up the egr solenoid is located under the car above the starter.
Depending on the year, the EGR valve is easily removed by removing the electrical connector and the bolts. Looking down at the engine from in front of the vehicle, the EGR valve is connected to the right side of the head, just above the transmission bell housing.
The Saturn SL2 was produced from the years 1990 to 2002 in the United States. The best way to tell if the fusible link in a 1999 Saturn SL2 is fried is that there will be no 12v.
Did You replace the EGR valve! Happened to me!
ON my 1999 sl2 it is the transmission fluid dipstick
MINE WAS DOING THE SAME THING AND IT WAS THE EGR VALVE!! THAT FIXED IT AND IT'S RUNNING GREAT!!:)GOOD LUCK
It would, if you changed out the trans and the ecm/tcm. The SL2 SC2 transmissions have a different higher reving gear ratio.
it does not have one.
The 1999 Saturn SL2 has four 6 1/2" speakers. Two in the front doors and two in the back deck above the trunk space.
A code 32 indicates a EGR system fault. The EGR valve takes some of the exhaust gases from the combustion cycle and returns them into the intake air system. This cuts down on the NOx emissions. A faulty EGR valve shouldn't keep a car from starting. The repair for a code 32 is to replace the EGR valve.
I have a 96 Saturn sl2 with 160k going thru 1 qt of oil per week. What can I do to stop it?
Looking at the engine from the front of the car, the EGR valve is directly behind the valve cover (right side). It has a wiring harness connected to it with multiple wires. It sits straight down on the engine and is attached with two bolts. ( Note: the front of the valve cover is next to the upper engine mount)
It is on the throttle body!!
Are you asking how to??
On the bottom right of the engine.
a 1999 has a 1.9l Dohc
Unplug it :D
