Block of instruction---EGR Valve---

What is it, where is it, and how do I replace it?

Is it more cost efective to take it to a shop?

Thanx in advance.

Since you have a 95, I will admit..it's a pita.

It's behind your intake, and the only way I could gain access to it was to remove the wiring, fuel rail assembly, and intake.

If you have the tools, I'd say save yourself quite a bit of money and do it yourself.

I would say if he will do it for 160 then let him do it. . . . .just my thoughts.

Currently In the Short Bus Garage:
2 - '94 T-bird LX's 4.6L (one with 300,000+ miles and one with 200,000+ miles)
1 - '97 Mark VIII LSC - INTECH V8 (120,000+ miles)
1 - '97 F150 XLT 4x4 Flareside, 4.6L (130,000+ miles) - Currently being dismantled and rebuilt with upgrades!
1 - '00 Mustang GT (likes to accelerate with the brake on!), 4.6L (60,000+ miles - only comes out when I need to get somewhere fast.)

oh yeah, and they all have 4R70W's

No way, to much money to just change the EGR. Buy yourself the Haynes manual and o it your self. Dont be lazy! It will be easier and you will learn. Sh!t, I did by my self the exploder swap in my 95 couagr without the knowledge, and 5 mechanics were I lived told me that it was not doable, so when I was done, I took the car to them and show them, they were like SOB's dont know nothing, that's why I do not let any mechanics touch my car anymore.!

I'd disconnect the egr tube from the exhaust manifold and pull the entire intake. That way you can clean the intake passages really well while you're in there.

To answer you question rbrown, we got a read out, (code) at Autozone. Im in Kuwiat, now so the Misses Had to handle it, we ended up paying 250, total. it took the gut 2 days to do it, but she seams to be happy with it.



I am Lazy, but if it would have saved me 250, juct call me Jesse Owens
