SOURCE: egr valve on a 2002 Saturn SL1

Take off air breather tube,you should see a cone shaped part, on top and at back of engine right by the gas pedal cable. Remove the 2 10mm bolts, and it should come right off.

SOURCE: My 2000 Saturn failed inspection, EGR valve.

I have the same car, but haven't had this problem (yet), I've had others (I believe it to be the infamous intake gasket fold), but this was on the list of things to check.

Yes, you can do this yourself. The EGR is on the driver side, mounted on the intake underneath the air intake line. You might just need to clean it up a little though with some carburetor cleaner, a toothbrush, and by using a torxx wrench to gently move the pintle up and down while turning it left to right. If it gets stuck when you move it (doesn't pop back down), then you definetly have been having trouble with it...just tap it on the side with a wrench and it'll pop out. Repeat until it moves easily.

To remove the EGR:
1. remove the air intake line by loosening the hose clamps on intake manifold and the air filter box. Also remove the other hose running from the valve cover to the air intake.
2. disconnect the electrical cable from the top by pulling the tab out and pulling the cable up
3. Use a 10 mm socket and and extension bar (at least 4") to loosen the two bolts holding the valve on.

It takes about 10 minutes, 20 max to do, and is far cheaper then spending $180 for a new valve!

SOURCE: i need to know where the egr valve is located

EGR stands for EXHAUST GAS RECIRCULATION.

This is a loop back system between your exhaust manifold and the underside of your filter.

The EGR valve is located between the inlet (exhaust manifold) and the outlet (intake manifold).


About 8-12" below the air filter....toward the passenger side.


EGR carbon built up can be clean.

Check the soft membrane on the EGR valve and see is it crack/torn. If it's in good shape then you may reuse it.

The professional use a vacuum hand tool to determine the travel of the EGR.

There are carbon built up inside the EGR air passage tube too,


Make sure you give both a good cleaning.


The EGR base gasket MUST BE REPLACE!


Order one before you start the job.


Please post more info on the comment window.

Multible misfire on 1997 saturn sl 1.9


You should have a trouble code or codes for the cylinder that is not producing power.
Once you know which cylinder, you need three things to make power.
Spark, fuel, and compression. One of the three components is lacking, such as a faulty injector or mechanical problem.

saturn had a lot of problems with the coil posts getting rusty that will cause the misfire on cylinder number 3 and any skip will cause the random misfire see as one coil fire two cylinders the egr sensor is built into the vavle and try stick closed from carbon build up cleaning it will only putoff replacing it if it operates at all

Took it to mechanic after it wont stay running he said it needs a crank shaft position sensor and egr valve. Where is the sensor and how do you replace it and how do you replace the egr valve.The mechanic...


what are the codes that made him think these two parts need replacing. The egr could cause a rough idle or stall, But it would need to be stuck open a little which may not set an egr code.

The crank sensor wouldnt cause a rough idle but the car could stall at times intermittantly.

What are you exact symptoms

Chrysler Concorde 1993-1997 3.5L MFI 6cyl
Exhaust Gas Recirculation System
Operation

This system reduces the amount of oxides of nitrogen (NO x ) in the exhaust by allowing a predetermined amount of exhaust gases to recirculate and dilute the incoming fuel/air mixture. The diluted air/fuel mixture reduces peak flame temperature during combustion, which in turn inhibits the production of Nitrogen oxides. The principal components of the system are:
- EGR tube (connects a passage in the intake manifold to the exhaust manifold)
- EGR valve
- Electronic EGR Transducer
- Vacuum hoses


Component and System Testing
  1. Check the condition of all of the EGR system hoses and tubes for leaks, hardening or kinks on the rubber hoses. Repair and correct these conditions before proceeding any testing.
  2. Be sure that the hoses at both of the EGR valve and EGR valve control are connected to the proper fittings.
  3. Be sure the electrical connector is firmly attached at the valve control.
  4. To check the EGR system operation, connect the DRB III scan tool or equivalent to the 16-way data link connector. The data link connector is located on the lower edge of the instrument panel near the steering column. Follow the scan tool instructions.
  5. After checking the system with the DRB III scan tool, proceed to the EGR valve leak and control tests, then repair as necessary.

Loosen, but do not remove, the EGR tube to intake manifold screws

The EGR valve attaches to the rear of the right cylinder head.
  1. Remove the vacuum tube from the electric EGR transducer solenoid. Inspect the vacuum lines for cracking, poor seal due to hardness, or other problems. Replace with new hoses if necessary.
  2. Remove the electrical connector from the solenoid.
  3. Slide the transducer up and out of the mounting bracket.
  4. Loosen, but do not remove, the EGR tube to the intake manifold screws.
  5. Remove the EGR tube lower screws at the valve.
  6. Remove the EGR valve and transducer.
  7. Clean both gasket surfaces and check for any signs of leakage or cracks. Replace the components if any such damage is found or if the valve fails the tests.

To install:
  1. Loosely install the EGR valve and a new gasket onto the cylinder head.
  2. Using a new gasket, attach the EGR tube to the valve and tighten the screws to 95 inch lbs. (11 Nm).
  3. Tighten the EGR tube to the intake manifold plenum screws to 16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm).
  4. Tighten the EGR valve to the cylinder head screws to 16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm).
  5. Reconnect the transducer solenoid to the vacuum fitting on the manifold.
  6. Slide the transducer into the bracket.
  7. Reconnect the vacuum lines and electrical wires to the EGR transducer.

EGR Flow Malfunction, and sometimes a Cylinder 4 Misfire.


How does the oil look? Is it milky or is there any discoloration? Is any moisture or steam vapor coming out of the exhaust pipe? The EGR fault is most likely being triggered from the cylinder missfire. Sounds like you might have a head gasket blown, and/or a cracked or warped cylinder head from the overheating.
You can run a compression test to help determine this.
Good luck...i hope this helps you troubleshoot the problem.

Auto Diagnostic Trouble Code


cORRECT. tHIS CODE DOES DEALs With emmissions. P1400 deals with the EGR valve. In case u are not aware, EGR stands for Exhaust Gas Re-circulation. What really this valve does is that it re-cycles some of the exhaust gases into the cylinder for combustion. The EGR valve might be blocked or has malfunctioned. It is advised that this valve changed or consult with a mechanic who is knowledgeable about this technology. a malfunctioned/dis-abled EGR system will cause the car to fail an emissions test, and may cause the EGR passages in the cylinder head and intake manifold to become blocked with carbon deposits, necessitating extensive engine disassembly for cleaning. So it is advised that u repair this ASAP
