EGR Valve Location & Removal
 
Hi All
I have a problem with my 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee 3 Litre Diesel, the engine preformance is really poor and I believe it is something to do with the EGR Valve, which I am trying to remove to clean and check it is working properly but I can not fully remove it, the bulk head is in the way, I have only about an inch left to go before I get it out but without beating the bulk head to bits I can't see how to get it fully out....any ideas how to get it out and actually test it.
Many thanks :)

Have you looked into the swirl motor?

is it throwing any codes and does the check engine light come on?

Do you have codes? Just delete the EGR. Apparently you can put a 4.7Kohm resistor in the plug and block the EGR off. I don't know the specifics but jeepfourm has more info. The swirl motor problem can be solved using the same method.
