Cleaning EGR valve on 98 Toyota Camry?

December 17th, 2010 · No Comments

Can anyone comment on the process involved in cleaning the EGR valve on a 1998 Toyota Camry. Any cautions or tips. Is there a gasket that will need to be replaced, and do I need to use a sealer if there is? I am assuming that throttle body cleaner is the best solvent to use. I want to try cleaning it before I pony up $165.00 for a new one. I have basic mechanical knowledge and tools, and the part removal and re-install looks to be easy enough as it sits right on top of the engine. There always seem to be some little hang up on these “simple” jobs. Any assistance or guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Opinion: hey check this out, before you take this valve off try to check the leads off this valve, make sure that the valve is the problem and not anything else. Most dealers will give you a free diognostic Rep. and then you will know for sure. Cleaning this part is pretty simple and you seem to know what your talking about, as for the gasket it depends on the make of the vehicle-check with the parts counter at the dealership to see exactly what comes along with this part when you buy it-they can even give you a diagram of all the parts involved with the fix and in what order they are in and the best part this advice is free. I use my dealership all the time, it’s a pretty good idea to have a good relationship with your dealers parts counter-alex
