What Does the EGR Valve Do?

EGR stands for exhaust gas recirculation. The valve allows unburned fuel and toxic exhaust to re-enter the combustion chamber to be fully consumed, increasing your fuel efficiency and lowering the number of pollutants that your engine puts into the air. Your engine is designed to work best when the EGR is supplying the correct mix of fumes into the engine. Over time, your EGR can become clogged with carbon build up which harms the performance of the vehicle. EGR valve service is recommended every 50,000 miles or more according to your owner’s manual.

 

What is Involved with the EGR Valve Service?

The EGR valve is located at the back of the engine. During EGR valve service, it is removed from the engine block, the valve housing is opened up and cleaned out using carburetor cleaner. The valve is checked for proper function. A new gasket is installed, the housing reassembled, and the valve reattached to the engine block. This service usually takes about an hour.

What are Signs of a Failed or Clogged EGR Valve?

A clogged or broken EGR valve can cause:

 

  • Your engine to sputter or idle roughly while waiting at a stop light
  • White or black smoke coming from your exhaust
  • The smell of gas from the unburned fuel being sent out your exhaust system
  • A sudden drop in fuel economy
  • Engine light or service notification in your driver information center

 

 

If you put off having your EGR valve inspected and cleaned, particulates can end up entering the combustion chamber and damaging your engine block, valves, and pistons, which can result in a repair costing thousands of dollars.
