Frequently asked questions
+

What is an EGR Valve?

The EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) Valve allows your engine to burn more cleanly and efficiently, reducing dangerous Nitrogen Oxide emissions by 'recirculating' some of the air in your exhaust and re-burning it, creating a more complete fuel burn.
+

How does an EGR Valve work?

All new diesel cars have an EGR Valve fitted as standard. It uses a vacuum pump to suck a controlled amount of exhaust gas back into your car's 'inlet manifold'. Here, it mixes with 'regular' air (pulled in from the car's air filter). This mix of gases actually creates a cooler gas, which leads to a cleaner burn and lower exhaust emissions.

What are the symptoms of an EGR Valve problem?

If an EGR Valve becomes blocked or fails to function, you will notice a number of issues including: rough idling, hesitation on acceleration, stalling, increased fuel consumption and more. Your engine management light may also switch on.
+
Can an EGR Valve fault cause 'limp mode' in a car?
This will depend on your car and the engine it has fitted. However, the poor performance and hesitation experienced may 'feel' like your car is in limp mode.
+
Does cleaning an EGR Valve work?
The most common cause of EGR Valve issues is clogging or sticking caused by a build up of soot within the valve. If this is the issue, then it is possible to clean the EGR Valve to return it to working order by removing it, soaking it and cleaning thoroughly with carburetor cleaner. Note, however, that removing and refitting the EGR requires some mechanical knowledge and access under your car.
+Can an EGR Valve cause stalling?
Yes - EGR Valve faults cause all sorts of 'rough running' issues, including stalling.
+How much to fix an EGR Valve?
In our experience, garages will be able to remove, clean or replace, and refit an EGR valve from £150 to £250.
