How Things Work

Exhaust Recirculation System - Known As EGR Valve

The Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) system is used to lower Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx) emission levels caused by high combustion temperature. It does this by decreasing combustion temperature.

The main element of the system is the linear EGR valve. The EGR valve feeds small amounts of exhaust gas back into the combustion chamber. With the fuel / air mixture diluted by the exhaust gases, combustion temperatures are reduced.
