Exhaust Gas Recirculation/EGR Valve Replacement Service

What is the Exhaust Gas Recirculation/EGR Valve all about?

The EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) valve helps lower the car’s exhaust emissions (gases from the tailpipe). It recirculates the portion of the gasses coming out of the engine by putting in back into the intake manifold, where the engine can burn it again, thereby reducing the emissions.

The EGR valve is located in the engine compartment (underneath the hood). Most engines require exhaust gas recirculation to meet emissions standards. If the EGR valve has gone bad, the car will not pass emissions.

Exhaust Gas Recirculation Valve

Keep in mind:

During the EGR valve replacement, your mechanic should also inspect the vacuum hoses connected to the EGR valve. If the vacuum hoses are cracked (leaking), the EGR valve will not function properly.

How it's done:

  • Scan the computer system in the car.
  • Check all vacuum related hoses to EGR valve.
  • Test EGR transducer.
  • Verify the EGR port is not plugged.
  • Remove and replace the EGR valve.
  • Clean the carbon deposit on EGR pintle.
  • Clear the trouble codes and test for proper operation of EGR valve.

Our recommendation:

It is a good idea to get an air induction (carbon cleaning) service performed every 50,000 miles. This will clean out any sludge or carbon build up in the air intake system. Always keep up with regular oil changes; it will help prevent sludge build up in the engine.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Exhaust Gas Recirculation/EGR Valve?

  • Check Engine light is on.
  • Possible loss of power.
  • Car will not run smoothly (shake, stumble, may stall).

How important is this service?

The EGR valve helps your vehicle recycle gas. The EGR valve is responsible for taking the gas that comes out of the engine, and sending it through the intake manifold, where the engine can utilize it again. Without the EGR valve your vehicle will not recycle and reuse any of its gas, which increases the emissions. Without the EGR, your car will not pass an emission inspection.

Acura TL V6-3.2L - Exhaust Gas Recirculation/EGR Valve - Miami, Florida
Check Engine light was on. Ran two codes which told me that the issues were coming from the oxygen sensors and EGR system. I just replaced the oxygen sensor so I figured it was the EGR system. I booked the cleaning of the EGR system and to replace the EGR valve. After he completed the task, he checked my oxygen sensors and told me they were working just fine. I checked the car right after and the check engine light went away. However, just a few hours later, the check engine light came back on...

Showed up on time and worked fast but thoroughly. When finished he showed me the old part and explained his process and did a 50 point inspection. Would definitely use this service again.

Kyle called me 30 minutes before appointment that he's on his way to my house. It gives me enough time to prepare for his arrival. When we met he courteously introduced himself. He showed me the part that he replaced. I just felt comfortable that he's the one repairing my car. I don't easily feel that way, particularly to strangers.
