I bought this EGR valve to replace the factory one on my 2001 Chevy Blazer LT. I really didn't want to spend the money, but this was the cheapest one I found for the money from any other auto parts store. It literally took 2 minutes to install. I diagnosed the old one as being no good, so I took it out, scraped the old gasket off, ordered it online and drove my wifes car to my local Advanced Auto Parts Store and installed in 2 minutes. I cleared the trouble code, started the truck and ran some errands and no codes after I installed this. Excellent product and so convenient to purchase online securely.

I bought this EGR valve for my 1999 Suburban in 8/2015. I read the reviews and was not concerned about the negative comments about this EGR valve not lasting very long, because it has a "lifetime warranty" and it only take about 5 minutes to install. In 11/2015 the EGR valve started to go bad and I got the P0404 code and my Suburban started running rough. I took it back and they gave me a new one. Everything was fine for almost two months, then I started getting the P0404 code again. I went to take it back and was told the you only get ONE replacement during the Lifetime Warranty. Well that was a suprise to me, because I didn't read that anywhere in the Warranty info on the Advance Auto web site or on my receipt. The manager listened to my story and made an exception and gave me a new EGR valve. The Suburban was running great again. Just to make sure nothing else was leading to the P0404 code I had been getting, I replaced the plugs, plug wires, distributor cap and rotor, cleaned the mass air flow sensor and had the Cheverolet Dealership check everything out connecting the EGR valve and they re-flashed my Powertrain Control Module. It is currently 3/2015 and I have put about 4500 miles on the last EGR valve and the P0404 is starting to show again. The Suburban isn't running rough yet and it takes about 50 miles for the code to come on, but I have to believe that it is starting to fail. I talked to the Manager at Advance and he told me that he would do whatever I wanted (give me a new one or give me my money back). I will say that that is pretty good, considering their policy is to only give you ONE replacement during your Lifetime Warranty. I am going to get my money back on this EGR valve and buy a Delphi or AC Delco.

    Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Exhaust Gas Recirculation Valve:

    Had issues with car stalling when warm and starting. Had several problem the past year with a 10 year old Lacrosse
    Needed 3 coils, wires, plugs and an ignition module. All needed replacement but still had sluggish acceleration and a check engine light. I thought it may be fuel injection so I took to dealer for analysis. He said the EGR valve was the most likely from the testing. The acceleration has improved and the light has to go through several cycles before it disappears. I suspect that the problem is solved. It took less than 30 minutes to install. Nuts were rusty so soak ahead of time so not to snap off and turn the project into a nightmare.

        Ok but dont last too long

        Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Exhaust Gas Recirculation Valve:

        Always fixes the 404 codes but they dont last long on my 1999 Burb for some reason. Always fixes the 404 codes but about a year later I need to replace it again. Seems to last longer when you clean the openings in the manifold. I am happy these have a lifetime warranty.Not sure a GM one would last longer but they are easy to replace. You also may get a randon misfire code along with the 404 code. I also got a new Distributor and set the spark ret with an analizer but my EGR keeps going bad I still give it 3 stars because I like Advance Auto support.

        I bought this valve 6 months ago and it failed on me yesterday. Thankfully it has a Lifetime Warranty. The two that I've handled seem to be rebuilt or remanned, not brand new but still cheaper than one from GM.

          Bought one of these to replace my factory EGR on an older truck. No codes just wanted to replace the original because of age. One month later this one threw a code. Took back and exchanged for another one thinking I got a bad one. One year later that one threw the same code again. Junk.

              Super easy to install. Comes with a new gasket as well. Recommend cleaning orifice of built-up carbon after removing old valve prior to installing new one. I used a thin rag with my finger, and then used a Dremel rotary tool with a wire wheel attachment and inserted it into the orifice to buff the carbon build-up off the cylinder walls. VERY EFFECTIVE. Ensured the thin rag came out relatively clean and then installed new valve. Just ensure the gasket is aligned properly. Also, recheck torque on the two bolts after driving the vehicle for a couple of days.

                          With reference to this BWD EGR Valve - part# EGR1273, the EGR valve may be the possible cause of the problem on your Chevy Silverado 1500. However, I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.

                          A:

                          The symptoms of malfunctioning EGR Valve: ROUGH IDLE: An EGR valve that fails to close properly can act as a vacuum leak, causing the fuel and air mixture to become too lean, resulting in an engine that sputters and misses at idle. This can also lead to engine stalling and hesitation upon acceleration., INCREASED FUEL CONSUMPTION: When an EGR valve fails to open and close at the proper rate, at the proper time, overall engine power is reduced due to decreased combustion chamber efficiency. This results in the engine using more fuel to do the same amount of work it would normally do under normal operating conditions., OVERHEATING: EGR valve serves to reduce the temperature of the ignition process by introduction of exhaust gases into the combustion chamber. If the EGR valve fails to open, combustion temperatures increase, resulting in higher overall engine temperatures, which can lead to engine overheating., PINGING AND KNOCKING: Pinging and knocking commonly result from increased engine temperatures. These increased temperatures cause pinging and knocking by creating a condition where the fuel and air mixture within a cylinder ignites prematurely., INCREASED EMISSIONS: The EGR valve's main purpose is to aid in the reduction of noxious gases produce by the engine. It does this by lowering the temperature of the combustion process through the introduction into the combustion chamber of controlled amounts of exhaust gases. This lower temperature has the effect of reducing the amount oxides of nitrogen (NOx) produced by the engine. A faulty EGR valve will fail to properly cool the combustion process allowing these gases to increase, which can lead to an abnormally high NOx reading during emissions testing.

                          If your vehicle EGR valve is bad then, you can see Rough Idle, Increased Fuel Consumption, Increased Emissions and Pinging and Knocking.

                          The "quick and dirty" method to TESTING to see if your EGR valve is not functioning properly is to put a block-off plate over the port(s) once you've removed the valve, start the engine, and observe any changes in the way that the engine runs. An improvement will indicate a bad EGR valve, and no change will indicate that your EGR valve is likely fine. You will need to be a little creative and make your own block off plate out of a piece of steel or aluminum. If this is out of the realm of your abilities, I'd suggest taking it to a qualified mechanic to have them properly diagnose and repair your vehicle. There are other component electrical tests that can be performed as well.

                          Fuel pressure might be too low. Or a bad coolant sensor can trick the computer into not allowing enough fuel. Bad oxygen sensor can also cause it. Also check fuel injectors for debris. These are the major possibilities for a rough engine run.

                          Well this all depends on the skill level of whoever is removing or replacing the part. Some may have a harder time than others who have experience. I would recommend purchasing a Haynes repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts.

                          Installing an BWD P/N: EGR1273 on a 1998 Chevy K2500 pickup with the 5.7L Vortec V-8 just took me about 10 minutes to do.

                          I'd suppose it MAY take you a bit longer. If you are not an experienced mechanic, allow yourself at least 1/2 hour to do the replacement. This part is extremely easy to replace on this particular vehicle as it's located right on top of the engine at the front, just next to the coolant/water neck inlet just off the intake manifold.

                          Removal of the EGR valve required unplugging the weatherpack electrical connector, and removing (2) 8mm bolts (with a 10mm socket hex). The tools required to make the job a snap is a 10mm socket, a 6" long extension, and a ratchet. I used my 1/4" drive set & that's all you need. If you don't have a 1/4" drive set, a 3/8" drive ratchet/socket set will do.

                          During installation, do not over-torque the bolts, as they tighten into ALUMINUM. Use a few dabs of red hi-temp RTV to stick your new gasket to the EGR valve to ease installation.
