Pricey but needed

04 Impala. Price is way too high but use discount codes. The GM DTC P404 code (EGR) is common on early 2000ish GM's. Clean the carbon out of the the EGR passage from the valve to the intake. 140K & mine was 100% clogged & causing SES lights. I didnt realize this until I bought the replacement EGR valve but I had it sooo...Just one thing to check before installing. BWD makes decent parts so I just kept it & installed it (not an easy task with some GM's).

        Web site should note "includes Gasket" instead of recommending a separate gasket purchase that turned out to be un-necessary and needed to be returned.

                    This is an exact replacement, however, they say the gasket does not come with it. Well, after I ordered the $7.49 gasket it arrived WITH a gasket, so save your time to send it back,

                                                    A:

                                                    Hi Fred, glad to assist you! An EGR valve works by recirculating used exhaust gases into your engine. These gases contain unburned fuel but very little oxygen, and they're very hot. A hot intake charge carries less oxygen, so a working EGR system effectively makes your engine act smaller than it really is. In terms of driving, an EGR valve that's stuck open will cause a noticeable drop in horsepower at the very least. Along with that may come detonation -- "knock" or "ping" -- under hard acceleration, and the attendant cylinder misfires. The engine will also see an open EGR valve as a massive vacuum leak, so expect hard starting and a very rough idle. An EGR stuck closed or clogged with carbon won't exhibit many symptoms, since engines don't technically need them to run. But expect a very noticeable drop in fuel economy, a noticeable gasoline smell from the exhaust pipe, a very hot catalytic converter, or all of the above. All modern vehicles monitor the EGR system, so any fault with the system should trigger a check-engine light. You'll get one anyway if the engine ends up detonating, misfiring or running rich; all of these will trigger diagnostic codes. But you should find EGR diagnostic codes along with them if the EGR is the source of the problem.

                                                    Hi Sheldon, happy to help! The EGR valve on your Chevy Venture should be located on the driver's side on top of the motor near the rear of the transmission dipstick tube and probably on one of the bolts that hold it on. To test its condition you should check the EGR by disconnecting its electrical connector at the valve. Use the voltmeter to test terminal 2 and 4 for voltage. Both should show about 5 volts on the meter when the ignition is turned on. Use an ohm meter to test terminals 2 and 4 across 1 and 5. If either circuit is open the EGR valve must be replaced.

                                                    Hi Bob, glad to assist you! The EGR valve on your Oldsmobile Alero would be located right of the intake towards the battery. It will be a round cylinder with a two bolt hold down and a plug in the top.
