Check engine light on, code was for a faulty EGR Valve.
EGR Valve was in stock, ordered on line and picked up at my local store.
Perfect match.
Only problem I had was finding out if my vehicle had a XZZZ code or not.
I sent a message to your customer service and the info I received was wrong. They said if my vehicle had the XZZZ code it would be listed consecutively in my VIN number. If it wasn't I didn't have the code.
I needed to know this because there are two types of EGR Valves.
We'll that code is buried in the VIN number and only God and Chrysler know how to
decipher this. I finally found a Dodge dealer that gave me the information.

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 Exhaust Gas Recirculation Valve:

Perfect fit for the 2006 Grand Caravan 3.8L. Included gaskets were nice. Use a 1/4" drive 10mm for lower bolts and an 8mm for the top bolts. Cleared the code after starting/driving the van a couple times. Saved my mother $260 in over-priced dealer parts and their labor.
I cannot attest for the durability. Plan to sell vehicle and get a new one in 30-45 days anyway.

          Most common fix for EGR codes on Dodge Caravan. Easy replacement, it takes about 15 minutes. Remove 8mm bolts that hold pipe/tube to intake and remove. Use 10mm 3/8 socket with extension to loosen top mounting bolt then use a 1/4 inch drive 10mm deep socket and extension to loosen lower bolt. You may need a cheater with the 1/4 drive for more leverage. You will have to use your fingers to finish getting the bottom bolt out as the socket will bind up before it is all the way out. Doing this will keep you from having to remove the alternator.

            Works great. Do not remove the Alt!

            Comments about BWD Exhaust Gas Recirculation Valve:

            Installed the part and reset the check engine light and voila, problem solved.

            Here is a little trick to getting around having to remove belt and the alternator:

            1. Remove the 8 mm bolts securing the intake tube.
            2. Then using a standard 10mm socket (or thinner if possible), for the bolts mounted to the cylinder head, remove the top one first.
            3. Take a hammer and tap the EGR unit downward and then get in behind it with a 10mm wrench to loosen up bottom bolt and remove it. You can try the socket, but the angle as the bolt is being removed becomes too great and the socket will not bite on the nut after a few turns. It takes time. Be patient!

            4. Installation requires that you install the bottom bolt first on the EGR unit and just make it snug so that you can swing the EGR unit and gasket in place for the top bolt. Snug that as well.
            5. Using the socket, you should now have enough room with an extension to tighten securely the bottom bolt along with the top bolt, evenly I might add. The bottom bolt and socket do not mate up perfectly, but there is just enough bite that you can tighten the bolt without stripping it. Besides, the torque cannot be more than 20ft lbs. It is a small bolt.

            A 6 point 10mm socket is what you need. Do not use a 12 point. A deep well 6 point works best.

            Cheers!

                            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.

                                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.

                                For help with your project, I recommend getting a repair manual specifically for your vehicle. It should be able to help you with detailed instructions on how to do many things.

                                Mike,
                                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.

                                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.

                                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.
