Re: How To: Install a new EGR

Thanks for the write up, it helped ,me today. I ended up dropping the alternator and pulling the bolts. Didn't take that much longer.

Re: How To: Install a new EGR

took it for a spin. Feels smoother and more responsive. Hopefully MPGs come up. My wifes ride so we shall see what she does with it. Or if she even notices a difference.

Re: How To: Install a new EGR

Hey Guys, just swapped out the EGR valve on mine. This tutorial helped out a lot. I was not able to wiggle the bottom bolt free or away from the alternator. I loosened the bottom bolt almost all the way, but left enough room to fit a medium sized flat head screw driver between the bolt and the alternator. Once the screw driver was in place, I was able to slowly guide/loosen the bottom bolt out with a 10mm open head wrench with no problems. I took my time and made sure not to strip the threads. I also purchased a smaller bolt from Lowes that made the reinstall much easier.

Re: How To: Install a new EGR

Replaced my EGR today without cutting the bolt or loosening the alternator. Just removed the driver's side bolt, swing the EGR to the left, and the passenger side bolt comes out with a little wiggling of the bolt and EGR. Reinstall was even easier.

My symptoms were no idle. Jeep wouldn't start or run without pressing the accelerator. '05 5.7L.
