Our expert insights

What does an EGR Valve motor do?

The valve controlling your EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) controls the amount of nitrogen oxide emitted into the atmosphere by engines by recycling part of the exhaust gas back into the engine cylinders.

What are the symptoms of a malfunctioning EGR Valve motor?

A rough idle when starting your vehicle or during brief stops (i.e. low engine speeds with a warmed-up engine) can be caused when the EGR is constantly open and a continuous flow of exhaust gases goes into the intake manifold. Poor performance can be caused when the valve is open or closed. The incorrect function of the EGR valve can cause the erratic performance of your vehicle.

What happens when we do an EGR Valve Replacement replacement on your car?

There are as many different processes to change an ERG Valve.

  • The mechanic will physically inspect the area around the EGR valve for leaks

  • A full diagnostic test will be carried out with monitoring of live data

  • If deemed to be faulty and once the engine has cooled, the EGR valve will be removed and replaced

  • Diagnostic checks will be run and codes cleared down

  • The vehicle will be tested

Hey Fixter, how common is an EGR valve replacement?

With exhaust gases flowing through the component, it will eventually succumb to the deposits of carbon and hydrocarbons and it will ultimately seize. Replacing an EGR valve is an all too common repair.

Our reviews

Takes a lot of stress away

I would definitely recommend this company: knowing someone was keeping an eye on everything to make sure I wasn't being overcharged for parts and labour takes a lot of stress out of having the work done. I felt really well looked after. Thank you Fixter.

Kathleen Hodge, West Yorkshire

Excellent service

Excellent service. On time to pick up my car & drop it back. Full service cost £179, main dealer quoted me £700-lots different!

Muhammad, Birmingham

Total game-changer!

Just had my MOT done through Fixter for the first time. It took about 5 minutes of my time in total to book, hand over the key, and get it back when the car was returned. So I was able to carry on looking after my 2 year old. Total game-changer!

Oliver Woodford, London

No need to drive to a garage

Can't get more convenient than someone turning up, taking the car from the house for its MOT and returning it a few hours later. No having to drive to a garage (often miles from anywhere or in the middle of an industrial estate) or hanging around waiting.

Darren, Pontefract

I literally cannot fault them

This is the 3rd time I have used Fixter and I recommend to everyone. It makes getting an MOT super easy for me. Everyone I speak to on the phone is incredibly helpful and polite, and they seem to be the most cost effective. I literally cannot fault them.

Land Rover

Land Rover is a luxury car brand that specialises in 4-wheel-drive vehicles.

Regarded as a British icon, the company came into effect in 1978, but previous versions were built as part of the Rover Company, dating back as early as 1947.

It is currently part of Jaguar Land Rover; owned by India’s Tata Motors since its acquisition in 2008.

The number of Land Rovers on the roads continues to grow. This could be due to a rise in popularity or their indestructible nature and go anywhere, handle anything design and build.

There are around 940k on the UK roads today—and not just on the roads—they’re authentic working vehicles chosen by the majority as their commercial off-roader of choice.

Luxury executive vehicles built for getting dirty

The once army-style paint schemes and boxy vehicles of yesteryear have long-since been replaced by the modern Land Rover. These cars offer genuine luxury interiors, advanced media and drive control technology, and look every inch the part working on a farm, climbing through forestry or attending a charity event at Sandringham or Kensington.

Range Rover: the opulent end of the Land Rover range

The ultimate Range Rover starts with a price tag of £83k, and for that you’ll get a car with class-leading features, excellent components and incredible off-road performance. It’s a first-class travel experience with tomorrow’s technology built in. Every element has been scrupulously designed—and it shows.

With exhaust gases flowing through the component, it will eventually succumb to the deposits of carbon and hydrocarbons and it will ultimately seize. Replacing an EGR valve is an all too common repair.

How does an EGR valve work and what are the components?

The EGR valve is connected to the exhaust system by a metal tube. When the engine is running, the valve will be opened by the engine management system to allow the exhaust gases to travel up the tube from the exhaust system and back through into the inlet manifold, and afterwards back into the engine. The control of this valve is either driven directly by a solenoid on the EGR unit itself or via a hose to a solenoid on the vacuum circuit that is also opened by the engine management system. Some EGR units have a cooler as part of them, that is plumbed into the engine’s cooling system, literally to cool the exhaust gasses before they go back through. By the exhaust gasses going back into the engine, it reduces NOx (Nitrogen Oxide) content. This is because the exhaust gas reduces the actual oxygen proportion and increases the vapour content, which in return reduces the combustion temperature peak. As more NOx is produced as the temperature rises, this method actively reduces the amount created.

What are the symptoms of a malfunctioning EGR Valve motor?

A rough idle when starting your vehicle or during brief stops (i.e. low engine speeds with a warmed-up engine) can be caused when the EGR is constantly open and a continuous flow of exhaust gases goes into the intake manifold. Poor performance can be caused when the valve is open or closed. The incorrect function of the EGR valve can cause the erratic performance of your vehicle.
