    I should have changed it 2 years ago when the light came on, it didn't cause me any trouble until a few months ago. I didn't want to pay the $ to fix something that wasn't broken but my 2007 caravan started dying at idle speeds. I replace the easily accessible EGR valve and now everything is great.

    Tip: take the top bolt out then rotate the valve out of your way to get the bottom bolt.

    This EGR valve fits our Chrysler minivan. It's easy to install & seems to work well. Unfortunately, they don't last all that long on this car. My big complaint, however, was with the warranty coverage. This valve has a limited lifetime warranty, but the info to back this up gets deleted out of the Advance Auto computers after 2 years. I couldn't put my hands on my original receipt, so I had to buy the part again. This is also complicated by the fact that when you buy parts at one of their stores, the warranty info is only available IN THAT STORE. Other chains retain all warranty info for all purchases much longer & make it available to all stores. While I am almost always a happy Advance customer, I am not happy with this situation.

      Comments about BWD EGR Valve:

      This EGR valve failed after only 14,000 miles. I recommend replacing yours with a factory OEM part from your dealer. It may be a little more but the OEM one lasted 54,000 miles and 7 years. This one from Advance lasted only 14,000 miles and 1 year.

                  easy to replace on 2007 Chrysler Town and Country 3.8 L van using a 1/4 ratchet with long bar. Looks like OEM. tested old unit by blocking off with a thin metal strip from soda can. Car ran fine with no shutter, so unit was bad. replaced with this new egr valve and eliminated shutter. gas mileage up by nearly 2 mpg to 19.7 around town.

                          Replaced the oem part at 89,000 miles and less than 5,000 miles later the check engine light is on again with exactly the same fault code. When I purchased the part from my local store it was not registered properly to my account as a limited warranty part so no refund is applicable! It's a pain in the rear to get to the bottom bolt but I have to go through it all again due to the poor quality part.

                                    Not easy to find out if my dodge had the right code for the part. The only way to find out was to contact the dealer. I was able to get a part number from them and cross reference it at an auto store which saved me about 50% off their cost or more. Not a hard part to install.

                                        A:

                                        The transmission uses a special hydraulic fluid under pressure to engage a series of forward gears and one reverse gear, basically transferring the power from the engine to the rear wheels. It has to do this constantly and smoothly every time the vehicle makes a trip. Sometimes the transmission can malfunction or indicate some warning signs before total failure. The transmission fluid level can be one of the most overlooked maintenance chores, responsible for the majority of transmission problems. Dirty or contaminated transmission fluid can cause hard shifting. The transmission filter sits in the pan sump and filters all particulate matter and debris in the fluid. When the screen or filtering device becomes clogged, the pressure flow from the pump becomes restricted, causing a high back-pressure condition. If the vacuum line becomes loose at its connection point, or the diaphragm fails inside the modulator, the transmission will not shift properly. The vacuum line and modulator should also be inspected for proper working order.

                                        With the 3.8 liter motor the EGR valva is right in front on your left when facing the motor. You don't have to touch the alternator to get to it. You can work around it with the right tools. I used a short socket with an extension to get to the bottom bolt. The bottom bolt is the hardest part.

                                      I just put this egr valve in, when I started vehicle afterwoods it sounds as if there is an exhaust leak and while idling if I got the rpm/s up to 3000 the car hesitates like crazy.

                                      any idea what is wrong. 2006 grand caravan sxt 3.8L

                                        Sounds more like a vacuum leak. Are you sure you hooked up all the hoses like they were.

                                        Could be a vacuum leak cheak the hoses make sure they are intact correctly and clamps are tightly fastened.

                                        You will find those letter sets in the VIN number of your vehicle. If you look at your VIN number and you see the "yzz" consecutively in the VIN than you have the "YZZ" option. If you do not see the "yzz" in your vin, then you do not have the "YZZ" option.

                                        Most codes the factory will put them on the valves itself,but you can find out which code you have thru a dealer or with the window sticker.Either way it will have this info in the options section.A code xzz which is listed for this vehicle is for a mid model year vehicle.

                                      I understand the EGR sensor is to be changed at the same time as the valve, and that they should be purchased as a set that's calibrated to one another? Or is my information incorrect? I see the parts are available individually, which seems ill-advised if they need to be paired... ??
