How to Test EGR Valve: Ultimate Guide

Background The exhaust gas recirculation valve abbreviated as the EGR valve is an emissions control device primarily intended to lower nitrogen oxide pollution. Oxides of nitrogen by properly in the engine’s combustion chamber. Nitrogen oxide is an inert gas and will start to build at temperatures above 2500 degrees Fahrenheit. The EGR valve recirculates some of this nitrogen oxide pollution back into the engine’s combustion chamber because the exhaust gas helps lower the temperatures of the air/fuel mixture.

Best Aftermarket Catalytic Converter Reviews In 2021

A catalytic converter is a very important component in your car. As a part of emission control system, it reduces the amount of harmful and toxic gases that are released into the atmosphere. Although designed to last as long as a car, in real life it is not always like that. Anything from driving habits to engine related problems can shorten the converter’s life-span. Sometimes, it is possible to revive a clogged up converter using catalytic converter cleaners.
