    Anyone around here replace an EGR Valve.

    On One of my routine inspections I noticed that a line going into the EGR had fallen off. Upon closer inspection the tube was clogged with carbon build up and the post it slips over was corroded.

    I don't have any engine warning lights or other obvious running problems. Mabey a little rough idle and slightly less than average fuel comsumption.

    So can you test an EGR Valve or just replace it and hope it does something for you? It's about $115.00.

    I had to replace mine but it was throwing a code. I had about 65,000 on mine when I did it. It was clogged with carbon and developed a hole in the diaphragm. Check with Cruiserdan on a price.

    I've got 149,000 on mine. I'm wondering if there is a way to test this thing?
