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

The EGR valve is a device that sends a small amount of the exhaust gasses back through into the intake system, thereby reducing harmful emissions.

How does an exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve work and what are the components?

The EGR valve is connected to the exhaust system by a metal tube. When the engine is running at its optimum, the valve will be opened by the engine management system to allow the exhaust gases to travel up the tube from the exhaust system and back through into the inlet manifold, and subsequently back into the engine.

The control of this valve is either driven directly by a solenoid on the EGR unit itself, or via a hose to a solenoid on the vacuum circuit that is also opened by the engine management system.

Some EGR units have a cooler as part of them, that is plumbed into the engine’s cooling system, literally to cool the exhaust gasses before they go back through.

By the exhaust gasses going back into the engine, it reduces NOx (Nitrogen Oxide) content. This is because the exhaust gas reduces the actual oxygen proportion and increases the vapour content, which in return reduces the combustion temperature peak. As more NOx is produced as the temperature rises, this method actively reduces the amount created.

How do you know there is something wrong with the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve?

An efficiently operating EGR valve is paramount to engine performance and a faulty one can make starting difficult and reduce performance considerably.
Some of the typical symptoms are

  • Difficulty in starting
  • Rough engine idle and stalling
  • Poor running
  • Reduced performance
  • Higher fuel consumption
  • Engine management light illuminated
  • MOT failure on emissions

When should you consider an exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve replacement?

As soon as you are aware of any of the above symptoms, you need to have the engine diagnostics check, even if the EML (engine management light) isn’t on. You may have experienced the light come on and then go aff the next time the engine is started and this can be a sign that the valve is beginning to stick.

Once an EGR valve begins to fail, it will expire fairly rapidly. The more the exhaust gases flow over it in a stuck position, the worse it will become.

Therefore, get it checked to be 100% certain, then get it changed.

How common is an exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve replacement?

With exhaust gases flowing through the unit, it will eventually succumb to the deposits of carbon and hydrocarbons etc and it will seize. Therefore replacing an EGR valve as an all too common repair.

How can I extend the life of my exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve?

Whilst you may not think you can have any influence over this, common sense dictates that the more efficient an engine is running, the cleaner the exhaust gasses will be. Therefore regular servicing, including the fuel filter is important.

Using quality fuel with its cleansing additives can also extend the units life as a result of a cleaner burning engine as above.

Using so called EGR system cleaners that simply get poured into the fuel tank, will not directly actually clean the EGR valve, but as previously explained, a cleaner running engine = less deposits.

What happens during an exhaust gas recirculation valve (EGR) replacement?

Whilst there are quite obviously many different engine designs on the market, there are as many different processes to change one.

There are some basic steps though that are common

  • The mechanic will physically inspect the area around the EGR valve for leaks
  • A full diagnostic test will be carried out with monitoring of live data
  • If deemed to be faulty and once the engine has cooled, the EGR valve will be removed and replaced
  • Diagnostic checks will be rerun and codes cleared down
  • Vehicle will be road tested
