Good to hear. I did all these as well a while ago and my Jeep says I love you every day! I avg 20 on the way to Vegas from LA.

I loooooove my Airad CAI sound. Sounds like Iron Mans repulsors

Re: How To: Install a new EGR

Nice write up; I'm doing mine this weekend. I will get the shorter bolt from an auto supply house, (Lowe's are not automotive grade).

Thumbs up Re: How To: Install a new EGR

Did you guys unplug the negitive side of the battery doing the install? Autozone got one or should I get one at the dealership? I hope this helps me I am getting big time throttle lag in the 35- 45 mph I have to slam on the gas pedal to get pass this speed.

Thanks
Chris

Re: How To: Install a new EGR

The part that come out of the intake that you broke Do you need to clean this part off, also how hard is it to remove do you turn it back and forward or pull on it to take out.

Re: How To: Install a new EGR

that little blue seal was only a few$ @ the dealer,he knew what it was before i was done telling him.when the tube is free @ the bottom just turn and pull.I cleaned it as it sits behind the TB. That blue seal will suck air if its no good.mine was out-of-shape even before i broke it.

Re: How To: Install a new EGR

after you unbolt that tube from the EGR, twist and wiggle it out gently and you just might save it. mine was 5 years old and brittle.

Re: How To: Install a new EGR

Does anyone know of an Autozone affiliate / reseller? They don't ship to Canada . I see there are a few EGR's on ebay but I'd rather buy from a reputable source.

The dealer here wants $182 + tax

EDIT

So I bit the bullet and bought everything from the dealer. $182 for the EGR + gasket and another $12 for the intake seal.

Overall it went pretty smoothly. I wasn't thinking very clearly at one point though... I have some wrenches with the ratchet-action box end that I was using, however I got it stuck on the bolt between the EGR and the alternator for a while. Had some fun trying to tighten that bolt a bit more so I could pull it out. Two wrenches don't fit in that tiny space so well.

Also, I used the M8x1.25 16 mm bolt with 13 mm head discussed in the OP, but the wrenches I have must be a little thicker as the head was a little too big and I had a tought time tightening it. I did eventually get it though.

All in all, very happy with the outcome. I had posted earlier about my Jeep "bucking" or "surging" under acceleration. The stealership flashed the PCM and cleaned the injectors, but that didn't help. This simple EGR swap seems to have worked though. For now at least *fingers crossed*.

Next up is the TB - got a look at the front of it and it definitely needs to be cleaned.

Thanks OP! +rep

Re: How To: Install a new EGR

OK, 300 miles and she runs like a top after the EGR replaced. Also guys, you DO NOT need to use a dremel tool to cut the bolt, or get a shorter bolt or trim the new bolt before installing, OR move the alternator out of the way.

Here is how to do it, which is very easy.

AFter removing intake, electrical connection, and breather tube Remove the upper right mounting bolt on the EGR. Rotate the EGR to the left, and the lower left bolt will be much easier to get to. The bolt comes right out with no problem, and goes in with no problem by using this method.

Re: How To: Install a new EGR

Also, the hemi tick, which was getting quite loud, is about 90 % gone after putting in the new EGR. The little round blue gasket was not on my breather tube. I bought one from the dealer, who listed one for mine, but the tube looks nothing like the one in the pics from the OP.
THere was no CEL, but I replaced it after reading about others experiences, and glad I did. I have 70k on the OD and it runs like new again.

That sounds good what size sockets did you use. I was cleaning my tb so I had my intake stuff out of the way but I could not get any type of wrench or socket to get in the small area with the raditor hose in the way. This is the last thing I need to do for maintances.
