EGR Valve


What is an EGR Valve and where is it Located?

The exhaust gas recirculation valve - EGR valve for short - in your vehicle is a critical part of the emission reduction system. Most commonly located on the intake manifold, the EGR valve uses vacuum from the induction system or a signal from the vehicle’s computer to open a passage and allow the engine’s exhaust gasses to be reintroduced back into the engine, combined with incoming air / fuel mixture. These exhaust gasses reduce the temperature of the combustion, which results in the reduction of harmful nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions being released into the environment.

EGR Valve Failure

EGR valves can fail by becoming stuck open, allowing for too much exhaust gas to enter the intake; or by being stuck closed, preventing or limiting the amount of exhaust gas to enter the intake. When an EGR valve is stuck in the open position it may result in rough idle, decreased engine performance and increased fuel consumption due to the fact that your vehicle is not burning and using the fuel that is available to burn and use. When an EGR valve is stuck in the closed position it may result in increased NOx emissions and pre-ignition (knock). Failure of any other component of the EGR system such as the EGR pressure sensor or a cracked vacuum line may also result in an inoperative EGR valve. OBDII Check Engine Codes related to EGR valves include:

P0400 - EGR Flow Malfunction
P0401 - Insufficient EGR Flow
P0402 - Excessive EGR Flow
P0403 - EGR Circuit Malfunction
P0404 - EGR Circuit Range / Performance
P0405 - EGR Sensor A Circuit Low
P0406 - EGR Sensor A Circuit High
P0407 - EGR Sensor B Circuit Low
P0408 - EGR Sensor B Circuit High
