How to remove the EGR valve for cleaning
It's smog time for me so I re-installed my stock exhaust and stock intake. I also re-turned my truck back to stock with my H&S Mini Maxx. After about 20 miles of driving the truck threw two codes.
P1335- Exhaust Gas Re circulation (EGR) Position Sensor
P0404 Exhaust Gas Re circulation Control Circuit Range/Performance
I removed the three bolts around the EGR along with the three holding the black casing over the top of the valve. I tried to pop the valve up and out of the intake housing. However, after several angles and tries I was unsuccessful. I decided to get out a pry bar and give it a little more pull. I ended up snapping the EGR mounting plate and the valve still didn't come out.
Any recommendations as to how to get this dam thing out? Luckly the way that it broke, the valve was unaffected and I was able to bolt is back on without issue. The black cover over the top even hides the split in the metal.
