How complicated is replacing the ECG valve going to be? I want to know what I should prepare for as far as time and money. And does this valve have something to do with car performance going up hills specifically? My car seems to have trouble power wise when going up hills and the check engine light comes on when this occurs. Someone told me it is the ECG valve that is causing it to occur. Is this right?

Hi lpurple14,

I believe you are referring to the EGR ( Exhaust Gas Recirculation ) valve.

When the CEL indicates, a trouble code would be stored in the engine computer.

Get a free scan done at Autozone and let me know the EXACT trouble code. The code would tell us what went wrong and how to go about rectifying the problem. Guessing is not going to work.
