How to properly reconnect your EGR valve back to the system. Learn how to remove and reconnect exhaust gas recirculation valves in this free car maintenance video.
In this clip, we're going to talk about the proper way to remove and replace the EGR Valve, or Exhaust Gas Recirculation Valve on a 1997 Ford F150. In this step we're going to talk about the proper service procedure for hooking your EGR Valve back up to the rest of the systems on the engine. We'll get this one right out of the way. This is your vacuum line, take and plug it right back in on the back of the nipple on top of the valve. I'm going to start the pipe fitting in the back. Run it down as far as you can by hand. Just to save you wrenching in a real tight area. Once you have it as tight as you can go by hand, use a Crescent Wrench and tighten it back up. There you go. That is the proper way to reconnect the rest of your vehicles systems back to the EGR Valve.
