getting the EGR valve out

I can get it to rotate in place, but I can't get it to pull out. Any tips?

I'm hoping to clean it and reuse it, so I want to be careful not to break it when I pull it out.

Thanks-

I'll give it a try. It's pretty hard to get to most of the edges - things are tight under the hood of an E-350 with a 6.0 crammed in there,

I bent a long screwdriver at the last few inches to get under the edges

Thanks guys - got it!

I just needed a bigger screwdriver that didn't flex as much as I pried it.

Now to clean the valve out - it's as coked up as an 80s hair band.

Since it is so coked up what does the inside the intake look like. It may be woth the touble to pull the intake and have it vatted. You also may want to look at the ccv filter and clean that as well. Caution do not use solvent on they o-rings they swell up and distort and can't be reused.

Just a tip for anyone else, prying can bend the valve and damage it. I rotate it to where the holes are offset and I can get a long piece of baling wire through them. Secure each end of a 3' piece in the ears of the valve, the "U" part that is left over will give you enough room to smack it up a few times with a good hammer. Just make sure you hit it straight.

taking the intake elbow off helps alot too. More room to get hands or a tool on it. I just took mine out with a crows foot prybar. Make sure the clamps are tight on the intake or itll blow once turbo builds
