Re: How To: Install a new EGR

Saved a ton of time by just grinding the top of the alternator with my Dremel. Took about 30 seconds. The bolt will slip out and then you can reuse it.

Re: How To: Install a new EGR

I just wanna give a huge THANKS to all of you that posted in this thread!...Especially to Tig that started this thread. I did the job by myself. It took me 2 hours to do. Checking the vehicle in the morning. On a side note, I didn't even have to loosen my alt @ all the bolt wiggles the further you get it out. Wrench seem to work the best. Thanks yall

^^ I did this too, only i just used a regular metal drillbit to provide enough room to get the bolt out.

Re: How To: Install a new EGR

just got done fixing this last night.. it was a good 2 hour job, maybe a little less. I ended up having to shave down the top of the alternator mount so I could get a socket on the lower bolt. It definitely helps to take the intake off and the heat shield if you have a "cold air" intake. Great write up though Tig! Made the job a lot easier for me knowing exactly what I had to do before I started.

As for the performance and problems it fixed:

1. I noticed that my mpg increased a small amount

2. Doesn't idle rough anymore or clunk when letting off the throttle.

3. Overall, everything runs a lot smoother.

I always knew there was something not quite right about my Jeep, and I had a gut feeling that it was the EGR valve the whole time. The light came on the first time, and I erased the code to see if it would come back. Asked my local shop if I should replace the EGR, they said no and told me that my K&N was messing it up. A few months later the code came up again, and then became a common occurence. My check engine light would go on and off a couple times per week. Finally got around to replacing it, and what a huge difference it made! Thanks again Tig for the awesome write up!

Re: How To: Install a new EGR

Everyone is following the initial poster and doing this easy job the hard way. As I posted somewhere in the middle of this thread, it is a simple job if you remove the top bolt, then rotate the EGR left and down so the lower bolt is now in the open, easy to get to and comes right out.

Well, unfortunately I'm not a professional, but I had to shave the alternator down because I couldn't get any sockets on there. There isn't any room for a crescent wrench either.

Well, a normal wrench fits just fine on the top bolt, so loosen and remove it, rotate the egr to the left, and the bottom one now has tons of room to get at with a wrench and comes out with no obstruction. Doin it this way, it took me 30 min total. None of the folks on here are mechanics; we're all shadetree fixers bro.

I read that in a former post. The job is done already anyways, but thanks for the input.
