Re: EGR VALVE $305 to replace

I'll never go through the dealer for parts unless forced to. Got my EGR at Advanced Auto for 40 bucks; installed it in an hour. I recommend to a new breather tube gasket, available only from the dealer and replace it while doing the job, also a dealer rip off, at 8 bucks for a 20 cent part.

Re: EGR VALVE $305 to replace

Does anyone have a picture of the location of the EGR valve?

Re: EGR VALVE $305 to replace

How do you know when your EGR valve is going out? I'm at about 50k miles on my '06 4.7L and it's been a little doggy for a while now. Although I need to get my leaking drivers manifold fixed, so that might be contributing.

Re: EGR VALVE $305 to replace

I had to replace mine @ 55K. Was getting MIL on, P0406. That's how I knew.

I also wondered why Mopar part was 100 vs. Autozone 35... so I dug a little. The Mopar part is made in Illinois, the one from Autozone ??? the manufacturer page says it is a "global" company... so, take a guess.

I paid the dealer for the part and installed it in less then an hour. 5.7. One of the bolts hits something else installed on the engine after the EGR during assembly.... the altenator?? cant remember... a little wiggling and I got it.
