What is a Pierburg valve?

What is a Pierburg valve?

An EGR, or Exhaust Gas Recirculation valve is a means of reducing NOx (Nitrogen Oxide) emissions from your engine. If seized closed the engine will operate at increased temperatures under load and may cause “engine knock”. …

What does an exhaust gas recirculation valve do?

The EGR system works by returning a small portion of exhaust gas to the engine’s combustion chambers through the intake manifold, lowering combustion temperatures and therefore reducing the amount of NOx emitted. The EGR valve is the main component of the EGR system and it’s normally closed.

Where is the EGR control valve located?

intake manifold
The EGR valve is usually located near or attached to the intake manifold, with a tube running to the exhaust manifold. There should also be a vacuum or electrical connector (or both) running to the valve which will need to be detached.

What happens if exhaust gas recirculation fails?

A faulty EGR valve can cause problems with the flow and operation of the EGR system leading to performance issues including a reduction in power, reduced acceleration and decreased fuel efficiency. EGR valves can become stuck ‘open’ or ‘closed’ due to a build-up of soot particles, carbon deposits and dirt from fuel.

Is removing EGR valve illegal?

Although it is not illegal to remove the EGR from your vehicle, it is an offence under the Road vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations (Regulation 61a(3))1 to use a vehicle which has been modified in such a way that it no longer complies with the air pollutant emissions standards it was designed to meet.

Can a car run without the EGR valve?

It might affect the environment but it is not harmful to the engine. Some people are running for more than 50k km without EGR. The EGR is disabled in all remapping.

How do I know if my car has an EGR valve?

Answer: You’re going to be looking towards the side of the engine. The hose for the EGR valve connects to the engine just below the upper, large, radiator hose. The EGR hose is smaller than the radiator hose and easy to spot. Follow the hose back on the side of the engine and you will find the EGR valve.

Is it OK to drive with a faulty EGR valve?

Can I drive with a bad EGR valve? Technically, you can drive your vehicle with a bad EGR valve, but your vehicle will run rough, shake at idle, and a check engine light will be illuminated. You might also hear popping sounds while driving down the road.

How much is an EGR valve replacement?

The average cost of replacing the EGR valve in your vehicle is anywhere from $250 to $350 on average, depending on your vehicle’s year, make, and model as well as the type of system it has. The cost of parts will be somewhere around $190 to $270, while the cost of labor will be anywhere from $60 to $80.
