To reduce or eliminate the amount of smog-creating pollutants emitted during the combustion process, the Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) valve recirculates a portion of the exhaust back through the process. This results in cooler combustion temperatures, which eliminates the formation of NOx emissions that contribute to air pollution.
Every Standard® EGR Valve is calibrated for precision performance. To ensure trouble-free operation, all Standard® EGR Valves must pass comprehensive quality testing, including computer-controlled bench testing for resistance, leakage, and response and flow rates.
Injection-molded high-temperature polymer prevents temperature-related failures
Palladium/gold/platinum alloy with Teflon-based lubricant ensures very low contact resistance
Direct-fit OE replacement with expected lifespan of more than 16 million cycles
Stainless steel internal components and fully encapsulated copper windings and connections ensure precision operation and greater protection
Improved anti-rust coating on machine casting for additional protection against rust for maximum life
Includes mounting gasket
