EGR valves: find out why it’s important to replace your EGR valve and how to do it yourself!
As engine combustion temperatures approach 2500 degrees, formation of smog producing nitrogen oxides, or NOx, increases. An EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) valve reduces these emissions by recirculating small amounts of exhaust back into the combustion chambers. Since exhaust is mostly carbon dioxide, it does not burn. Less burning reduces combustion temperature, and NOx emissions.
When a valve malfunctions, carbon dioxide is reintroduced at the wrong time, or in the wrong amounts. Engine performance suffers, as proper combustion does not occur.
Advance Auto Parts has the EGR valve replacement you need to bring your engine back to peak performance, along with other quality auto parts.
Why you should inspect EGR valves every 15,000 miles:
EGR valves recirculate carbon dioxide from your vehicle’s exhaust back through your engine. If the valve is malfunctioning you may experience reduced power, detonation (pinging), rough idle, or stalling and hesitation when accelerating. Inspect your valve and replace if required.
