Re: 4.7 egr

Did this earlier today. Not too bad. To put it in perspective; I had a harder time getting the 8th spark plug out.

The directions above were helpful and simple to follow. I would say to remove the tube before you go messing with the plug.

Make sure you have a 1/4" ratchet/sockets, as they're the only ones small enough to remove the bolts for the EGR valve tube.

You will also need an extension to remove the mounting bolts. If you have a quality set of sockets, you should be set. Overall it took me about an hour. Haven't driven the Jeep yet to see the effects.

Big thanks to Andrew for the instructions and clarification.

You've got all the info you need in the previous posts. It is pretty straight forward but is in a VERY tight spot.

Granted, I did this some time ago, but I don't recall having to rip out any gaskets. The 4.7 and 5.7 EGRs are in different locations. I think you should be OK. Everything was plug and play.
