    New Car Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) Valve Hamilton

    About the Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) Valve:

    Most cars have an exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system. The exhaust gas recirculation – EGR system is used to reduce exhaust emissions by recirculating gases back into the engine cylinders via the engine intake manifold.

    The exhaust gas recirculation valve is an important component that controls the flow and recirculation of exhaust gases. When the valve is open, exhaust gases are sent through your car’s EGR system, resulting in reduced emissions. 

    How does an EGR valve work?

    A faulty EGR valve can affect the operation of your engine, resulting in a variety of different problems. When the EGR valve becomes stuck open, a continuous flow of exhaust gases will flow into your car’s intake manifold. When the EGR valve becomes stuck shut, the flow of gases will be completely blocked.


    Symptoms of an EGR valve stuck open:

    Engine Stalling – A faulty EGR valve can cause your car to stall more often. This will happen the most when your car is idling.

    Reduced engine performance – When the EGR valve is stuck open, you will experience a reduction in engine performance. This will result in reduced engine power and increased fuel consumption.

    Fuel odour – You may notice a slight fuel odour when operating your vehicle. This happens due to the increase of hydrocarbon gases leaving through the tailpipe. 


    Symptoms of an EGR valve stuck shut:

    Loud banging noises – When the EGR valve is stuck shut, the gasses can ignite. This may result in loud banging noises. In some cases, these gases can ignite with enough power to damage the engine and exhaust.

    Check engine light – If your car’s onboard computer detects problems with the EGR system, the check engine light will turn on.
