When you know how to replace the EGR valve in the Land Rover Discovery you will feel better about caring for your car. It’s quite easy to replace the exhaust gas recirculator (EGR) valve of the Land Rover Discovery and you need not be an expert in automobiles to get this job done perfectly, though you should have some basic idea on things present under the hood of your Land Rover Discovery.
I listen from Taurus owners that just had the same problem (EGR insufficient and EGR excessive) and they replaced the EGR valve and the 4 oxygen sensors (if you do this use Ford sensors). This didn't fix the problem; then changed the Vacuum Regulator Solenoid and a tube mounted sensor part numbers F63Z-9J459-AA, and 4U7Z-9J460-AA. this fixed my check engine light and code issues, as well as it stopped idling so high that it caused the trans to jump into gear. It sometimes jumped so hard that he thought he had a broken motor mount.

Replace EGR valve in '98 Camry?
My EGR valve is bad according to a diagnostic test I had a autoshop
run yesterday. I need to replace it.
If I were to buy one, is this an easy thing to replace on a 1998 Camry
LE V6? Or should I get a mechanic to do it?
No, I'm not terribly handy, but if its obvious, I certainly don't want
to pay someone.
