Am considering undertaking this project this weekend.
- Any cleaning done to the actual "Tube" after removal?
- after spraying carb cleaner into valve, what next for the unscraped carbon?... just let it drain down below?
- spray and scarpe, or let sit???? more detail?
- what else is missing from your thread?
sorry, am detailed-oriented and will follow instructions step by step to get it right. if you can expand more, that will be helpful.
thanks, and i too did my own spark-plugs 2 months ago.
[quote=sallymax;6878435]........From my experience if you are willing and able to change the spark plugs on a 6 gen max you can clean the egr valve. The valve does not need to be removed to be cleaned. I just removed the egr tube from the intake manafold to the valve. I would also replace the gaskets when you do this. You do not have to do this but the gaskets might get messed up when you remove the tube. Then I sprayed some carb cleaner in the valve and used a small pipe cleaner to scrape out the carbon. If you have access to compressed air use that instead of the pipe cleaner. After I did this and cleared the code from the computer I have not had and egr problem since. quote]
