Signs of a Failing EGR Valve
Your vehicle’s EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) valve is a simple mechanism which allows exhaust gases to enter the intake manifold. On modern vehicles, this is typically controlled electronically. As you speed up or your engine heats up, the valve opens. It then closes when you slow to a stop or turn off your car.
The exhaust gases produced from your engine mix with air and fuel in the intake manifold and the harmful gases react to produce less harmful emissions. If your EGR valve fails, it will either stay open or closed at all times. This can trigger serious problems in your engine and emissions system. You will likely see an increase in fuel consumption, your engine light may turn on, and you will definitely fail your emissions test.
If left unchecked, you may eventually experience serious engine damage, stall, or get multiple ignitions. If you notice any of these problems or a strong fuel odor, visit your local mechanic shop as soon as possible. Your EGR valve may need to be cleaned, or it may call for a complete replacement.
