Re: How To: Install a new EGR

I used 8 mm and 10 mm open ended wrenches.

Re: How To: Install a new EGR

Is the EGR on the 3.7 in the same location?


EDIT: I guess the EGR was not introduced to the 3.7 until 2007 or 2008.... correct??

Re: How To: Install a new EGR

EDIT: I did the job today. Ended up just taking off the serpentine belt and loosening the alternator (+/- additional 10-15min). I actually found the paper gasket hidden in the bottom of the box that my EGR came in (bought the BWD brand from O'Reilly's that came with the metal gasket and paper pipe gasket). Thankfully my blue rubber gasket at the TB didn't break when I pulled it out, so all went well. Went ahead and did the Taylor shorty conversion at the same time and cleaned my TB out as well (had 2mm of carbon build up, ugh). <<- Next comes the catch can when I can afford one...

Hmm just planned to do this job, and bought the EGR (came with the metal gasket but not the paper one for the tube). You think I can make due with the old paper gasket? No one around me stocks the paper gasket, even the dealer.

Mine came with just the metal gasket also and no problem . Also, if you read my post from earlier, The OP is wrong about the insturctions and photos'; there is no need to remove the belt, or loosen and move the alternator or cut the bolt; just rotate the egr to the left after removing the drivers side bolt and slightly loosening the other, the lower one comes out and goes in with no problem.

Can't picture on how to do those instructions in my head, but thanks for the advice. Hopefully I won't have to replace it again. As it is, I did it just because it "probably" needed it, never got a CEL or anything after 93k on the clock.

Re: How To: Install a new EGR

I just did this over the weekend and also had to move the alternator to get the bolt out. What a pain in the ass.

@dmsfun: I do not see how rotating the EGR to the left will allow the bolt to clear the alternator. The top of the alternator is blocking the bolt, so rotating the EGR does nothing to allow the bolt to be removed from the head. Sure, you rotate the EGR, but the bolt itself isn't moving, and neither is the alternator, so I don't see how that could possibly help...?

Moving the alternator wasn't that bad...but agree on the second point, I don't think there was any way I could have rotated it out of the way considering that the bolt that was inaccessable was the pivot point...

That being said, some people have said they've been able to pry out the bolt with a flathead screwdriver...I tried and failed on that one. Every Jeep is different.

I don't think I would try the screwdriver because of the possibility of messing up the threads in the head.

Alternator wasn't tough to get it moved, but it was a very snug fit so it was tough for me to get it lined back up to get the bolts in.

Oh yeah, I must've suppressed that memory, that was a PITA. A 5 min PITA, but a PITA nonetheless.

Try it, it works, 100% guaranteed, and the bolt goes in and out without even touching the alternator. I discovered this method about a minute after I saw the bolt would not come out, and it works perfectly.

Re: How To: Install a new EGR

I did the EGR replacement today and I had to cut the bolt. The "wiggle" technique did not work with me and I didn't feel like removing the alternator to get access to the EGR screws.

I was having problems with idle stalling, erratic idling, and shuddering around 40 MPH. It also threw a 406 CEL at me a couple of times within the past week. It turns out this EGR was the culprit! This was the only component I changed and so far no problems with idling or shuddering! I have almost 90K miles on the car so I'm guessing that the original owner of the Jeep never changed it out.

Re: How To: Install a new EGR

Idk of this has been mentioned ( with so many pages) but the 3.7, at least mine, does not have an EGR valve....
