How hard is it to switch out an EGR valve? Could I do it in two hours?
I cleaned mine last year and it was a pain to get off because of the location of the screws. there like tucked under the valve making it hard to get a tool under it.
you can do it in less then 2 hours. after removing mine the first time I had to remove it a second time because I wanted to replace the screws that came on it with Allen screws from Ace Hardware of the same size. The second time I removed it took me less than 30 minutes removal and install.
The first time took a couple hours because I couldnt get to the screws.
But after I cleaned the valve I really didnt notice a big difference in performance but my rpm's changed and I had to turn the idle down.
use a flexible wire brush and engine cleaner or some kind of carbon cleaner. its thick and it dont wanna come off.
hope it helps ya.
