How To Clean An Egr Valve




What do you think about this video?

Allen Mundorff: Nice language, mouthbreather.

Loretta Bain: after you get that stuff floating around can't you put it in a pot of hot dawn soap to finish clean it..

Thompson Kong: good job

Bill Wischnak: I didn't know Darth Vader knew how to work on cars. Scchhuuhhh scchhuuhhhh 

alwayslovez: Can anyone help me? My 92 chevy lumina starts runs fine for awhile a day at most then starts going wacky. The rpms jump like crazy and the car starts to jerk and sounds like its backfiring then it will die out and not start unless i keep gas pressed and it will sometimes die when gears are changed. Have done tune up and replaced TP sensor but still having trouble. PS catilyic converter taken out and pipe put through but car had jerking problem way before. HELP!!!

wingman1861: @madonnarules any car with an egr,so yes

Tony Carollo: Use PB blaster, its sold at most auto parts stores. Comes in a small white can, with yellow and red design/lettering. Spray it on any rusty, or stubborn bolts; it'll take care of it.

wingman1861: @matbatter2010 thanks man

nate ruckus: sorry daddy

Will Willwill: watch yourself with the chemicals. can cause cancer and bad for the environment.

annasmother: you made a mistake spraying carb cleaner on the plastic diapgragm, that will ruin it man. Just spray on the metal holes.

LEITZSEY: This mafreaka is funny!!! lmao

rushymoto: I can't see that doing much. What about stripping it down and doing a physical clean instead of poking with an ear stick.

wingman1861: @rushymoto thats as stripped down as an egr gets

Ivan Garcia: its like hes making love to the egr, "oh yeah! get in there deep" wtf!

doren garcia: Best one on EGR valve. Thanks.

namesleft: @tubongsigaw there is sloted holes under it you can fit your fingers in and push the plate in and out to see if it is sticking or not this is just a quick test a proper test would be take it off and presure test it

TimmyCoProductions: if you can bear with me and be careful with this method. use it at your own risk im not liable. but mix one parts fuel injector cleaner with 9 parts car cleaner and it will dissolve the carbon a little faster

CyberPunk733: you didn't show the hardest parts, taking the damn valve off with the rusted solid bolts & nuts, usually they have to be broken/ cut off they are rusted so bad.

wingman1861: @mmulisha1989 hold ur breathe til i care

Ben D: hope you cleaned your dash next. if the cars no longer stalling at idle, your mates might stall getting in once they see the dash.

scaryman101086: just close it with a plate ;)

Rick Bass: the EGR valve for mine is a hundred bucks, so this is a good idea

mkeane442: this motherfreaker's falling apart! lol

doren garcia: One thing added, to reset the computer on some cars you pull the fuse rather than unhook the battery so your radio presets don't have to be redone.

suprafreak1990: Thanks for posting this vid, you just saved me $45 ($125 if I bought a new EGR Valve).

wingman1861: @chevrolet0388 ive replaced a few.if its easy to get to,reuse and see before replacing. if its a bitch to get to,spend the $4 and replace it so your not swearing "i got to freakin do it again"

miggidymark: Cool video.....I got a reading of P1404 which stood for exhaust gas system, would cleaning my EGR be the solution??

BBSixx420: Good commentary .... and the emergency vehicles epic

Kevin Tristan Lawrence: Excellent guide, thanks very much.. I see one gasket here, my Vauxhall Opel parts supplier says it has two gaskets, top and bottom.. I presume I replace both?

91RiVi: you sound like the comedian pat thorton lol

helloitsmelol097: I just got a 96 buick regal and went autozone and had this same error. I've only had it for a few months and have had some major problems with it. I almost blew the engine when we drove it for about an hour on the highway not knowing that the water pump was broke. after that happened we starting having the check engine light with the egr failure. Has anyone else had any problems like this?

swingerinsurance: How long did the code stay off? Did this 11 months ago, and it came back on. Thinking about taking on cleaning all the ports.

wingman1861: @LoseMyFocus i dont think the egr is the problem,but without being able to check it out in person i cant rule it out. sounds like a fuel problem or a vacuum problem(egr runs off vacuum). if it were me id hit a pick and pull and grab a used one,clean it ,and switch it out.see it thats makes a difference. if not id check the vacuum lines used starter fluid(lightly spray vac lines with car running...idles spikes=bad vac lines). doing things should run $10-15 total doing it yourself. check in after

OSDCrusher: This is America, we clean our motherfreaking EGR valves in the parking lot

Jeremy Low: at the very end of the video, you said sensors replace themselves. I'm not sure about that. they might reset themselves, but not replace themselves.

710 Visions: If you don't want to or can't get the EGR valve off, you can pull off the vacuum line and screw a small screw into the opening of the vacuum line. Try to use a small enough screw that you don't f up the vacuum line though, in case you want to replace or clean it later.

axenz axtiz: sorry daddy.... nice kid voice

JimmyDonut42: asswhoopin' about to commence at 0:49

wingman1861: @tubongsigaw its a 1st gen dodge neon.ive never bought a new one,as ive always cleaned them up and reinstalled. if i ever have to replace one ill just go to a pick and pull and get one for 8 dollars. if the check engine light isnt on with a code for the egr i wouldnt worry about it

EthanHanus: So spraying carb cleaner inside the EGR doesn't destroy the rubber diaphragm inside? I was told that the carb cleaner will destroy it. I have a 94 Chevy with a 350 TBI with the EGR getting nasty, been looking to fix it.

blazinloud: @9393DJCobra well i hope your almost dead then, moron....go to hell

justin peck: FINALY A PERSON THATS NOT A kitty WEREING GLOVE TO WORK ON HIS CAR DAMN EVERY ONE ELSE I SEE WERED GLOVES LMAO

chipconstant: Great job for your mom-well done sir

wingman1861: it wont be the egr. look at my other video called IAC cleaning. and you want to use a sensor safe carb cleaner.gas and wd40 will not work

David King: All good, but you do not spray the diaphragm with this stuff, it damages the diaphragm! Look at any manufacturers manual, they tell you not to touch the diaphragm with any solvent whatsoever. That diaphragm will be all pieces in a few weeks.

wingman1861: i do agree it is easier! but its to hard to tell someone that over the phone or show the right fuse in a video.

frodtsl: i have a 1995 camro that is blowing misty smok out the exust and it wont stop how do i fix this problem

rockytherobson: sounds like you have a breathing problem

kurdishusa: it did not work on my toyota corolla 94.
