An efficiently running engine is the result of the combined efforts of your vehicle components. One way of achieving this is by controlling the engine knock and managing engine exhaust emission, through the EGR valve. This emission system component can be found on the intake manifold. EGR stands for exhaust gas recirculation. As its name implies, your EGR valve works by recirculating or redirecting a certain amount of exhaust gas back into the engine cylinders. That way, your car is able to minimize the amount of excess oxygen and lower the peak combustion temperatures that could be harmful to your engine.
Only a precise amount of exhaust gases are re-circulated back into the engine. That means your EGR valve does not always put the exhaust gases into your intake. Exhaust gases are prevented from entering your engine cylinders when you have the throttle wide open, or when the engine is cold. Actually, it routes back only 5 to 15 percent of exhaust gases-just the right amount to sustain your engine with contiguous flame during the combustion process. If it fails to function the way it used to be, you will usually experience some knocking or pinging sound due to a higher than normal combustion chamber temperature.
