The EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) valve is an emission control device which helps maintain the combustion chamber temperature in an effort to reduce the formation of nitrogen oxides (NOx). The … Continue Reading What Does An EGR Valve Do And Why Is It Important For Emissions?
The Ford EGR Pressure Feedback system is known for persistent P0401 EGR low flow code issues. Bear in mind, low flow can be caused by several issues. The most common … Continue Reading Dealing With Ford P0401 Code Issues
It used to be when you heard someone say “diesel,” the word “dirty” was usually in close proximity. Those were the old days. Today’s modern diesel engines, including those found … Continue Reading EGR Valves & Coolers Are Core To Maintaining Clean Diesel Emissions
This small component does a huge amount of work to keep NOx emissions at bay, so learning how to clean an EGR valve is a critical maintenance task.
The air around us is a veritable cocktail of several gasses. Oxygen gets the most attention, but nitrogen actually outstrips it in volume, and there are several others rounding out the atmosphere. As engines rely on the intake of atmospheric air for the combustion process, this chemical makeup and its characteristics must be…
