EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) valve is a part of engine exhaust sytem and the main function of EGR valve is to reduce the content of carbon from the car's exhaust emissions. Now the question arries how this is done, simple It recirculates the portion of the gases that comes out of the engine by opening the vale and giving a passage to exhaust gasese to entre back into the intake manifold where the engine can burn it again and reduces carbon emissions and better engine performance.Exhaust gas recirculation is a very important component of exhaust system to meet emission standards. If the EGR valve has failed, the car will not pass its emissions test in Mot.
For diesel engines it is a good practice to have carbon cleaning service performed every 60,000 miles or once in a year regardless of the mileage. Regular engine oil and oil filter service also helps to prevent carbon build-up in the engine.
The EGR valve helps your vehicle to recycle gas. The EGR valve is responsible for absorbing the gas exiting the engine and sending it through the intake manifold where the engine can use it again. Without the EGR valve, your car engine will not recycle and reuse its gas, which increases emissions and your car will not pass its emission test.
