What is an EGR Valve?
The EGR valve works by recirculating a measured amount of the exhaust gases back into the engine through the air intake
system, reducing the amount of emissions the engine produces.
The problem lies with the exhaust gas that contain carbon deposits, this gas is constantly being recirculated through the
engine, which over time will cause a build-up of the carbon deposits in the intake manifold and other parts including the
EGR valve. This build up in the valve is often what causes them to fail.
Common issues include:
Poor idling revs;
Engine lethargy and unresponsiveness (low speed);
Engine hesitancy and chugging (higher speeds);
Smoke from the exhaust;
Excessive engine temperature;
Trips to the garage because of the engine management light coming on.
What are the benefits of EGR delete?
An EGR valve naturally has high soot content, which reduces your engine's
power. Properly disabling it decreases soot deposits, which prevents harmful
contaminants from being reintroduced back into the engine and causing issues.
With restored engine power comes restored diesel MPG, which means better
