Hello,

You must start with the engine cold becasue it is by the intake manifold and you don't want to burn yourself. Here is a video on how to test the valve once you have it off.

Here are diagrams that will help you remove the valve on your car

Check out the diagrams (Below)

Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.

Cheers, Ken

REMOVAL
If the EGR system operates incorrectly, replace the entire EGR valve and transducer together. The EGR valve and electrical transducer are calibrated together.

Remove the air cleaner lid, disconnect the inlet air temperature sensor and makeup air hose.
Remove the negative battery cable.

Engine in my 2001 PTCruiser locked up. I bought low mile used engine without realizing that my car had EGR valve and used engine DOES NOT have EGR value. Can I somehow modify things to use this new engine or am I SOL?

For example, the head on my old engine likely is OK. Can I use old head on new lower unit?

Or can I use new engine if I replace computer? (I assume original computer would throw a code if engine did not have EGR)

You help greatly appreciated!

Hi SRPMO, Welcome to 2carpros and TY for the donation.

For example, the head on my old engine likely is OK. Can I use old head on new lower unit? I will go with this direction. Computer/Reflashing is much more than a headgasket
