“Rhys was great yet again and although had a few problems he sorted out as best he could. The only issue we have is with Click Mechanic, as they got the time to do the work incorrect and they should review this also consider compensation to Rhys for the hours that the work actually took to complete.”

“Andy arrived on time, and set about the job of changing the EGR valve on my Freelander 2. It took considerably longer than the 2 hours Andy had been allowed, which is clearly unfair to Andy. I had called the Land Rover Dealership and they quoted 3hours labour. When the new valve was fitted and all codes were cleared, the car was still in limp mode, so the problem had not changed. I had to take the car to the Land Rover dealership to have rhe EGR valve reprogrammed, which was a considerable expense. The overall job cost more than if i had taken it to main dealer, which was unfortunate. If I had known that it would not be possible to resolve the problem I would not have used ClickMechanic“

Mobile mechanic in Fareham , 13 years of experience


9th October 2018
“Joe And Matt changed the EGR valve that showed up as faulty on the diagnostics. This replacement revealed that the vacuum hose needed replacing due to having a split in it. They returned the following day and fitted the new vacuum hose which required removal of the inlet manifold and injector rail for access. The engine was started up but ran very badly. After further investigation they found that the new EGR valve had failed! A new replacement was sourced locally and fitted and the problem was solved. All of this extended their original time estimate but they did not charge for their extra time. I was kept in the information loop at all times as to what was happening.“

What does an EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) Valve do?

The exhaust gas recirculation unit is a device which is coupled to the engine and reduces the amount of harmful NOx emissions the engine puts out. It recirculates the exhaust gases coming from the engine's cylinders to the intake manifold to be mixed with fresh air and fuel for a renewed combustion in the cylinders.

During this process the air-fuel mixture going into the engine will contain less oxygen due to the addition of the exhaust gases. Meaning that the combustion's temperature decreases as the heat generated is spread over a larger mass. As NOx predominantly occurs at high combustion temperatures it means that NOx emission levels decrease, making for better emissions performance.

The EGR's valve is the component which regulates how much exhaust gas is lead back into into the engine through the air intake manifold.

How do you know there is something wrong with the EGR Valve?

  • When the 'Check Engine' light is on.
  • When the engine doesn't run as usual (car rocks and wobbles under acceleration).
  • When the car stalls or does not start (properly).

When should you consider an EGR Valve replacement?

Over time there can be a build up of dirt and carbon inside the EGR unit and the valve, leading to the problems noted earlier. In some cases an EGR unit that does not work correctly can lead to failing an emissions test.

Should you experience problems, like those noted earlier, then it is important to have the EGR valve inspected and, if necessary, have the EGR valve replaced. Always remember to service the EGR unit as and when stipulated in the guidelines set out by your car's manufacturer.

What happens during an EGR Valve replacement?

  • Mechanic will check the engine's ECU for faults.
  • Mechanic will inspect the EGR valve, EGR unit and ancillaries (like the transducer, port, hoses etc.).
  • If necessary, the mechanic will replace the EGR valve.
  • Mechanic will advise if any other parts need to be replaced.
  • Mechanic will reset the ECU and test drive the car.

How much does an EGR Valve replacement cost?

The cost of an EGR valve replacement depends on your car and what parts your car's manufacturer recommends using for the replacement. Find out what you could save by having your EGR valve replaced by Clickmechanic, by selecting your car at the top of this page!
