I'm pretty sure the EGR valve is located near the firewall and it looks like a spaceship/mushroom looking thing. I see there is a metal pipe connected to it but thats where I get confused. Ive done other research and a hose usually connects to the EGR valve but I have a metal pipe of some sort.

How would I remove the EGR valve and clean it?? Also, what cleaning products should I use to clean the EGR valve??

A link of some sorts would help extremley or video is what I really want so I can just watch the video haha.

But any help would be great. I seen the right ups about EGR's on this website but I'm still confused. It doesnt tell you exactly how to remove the EGR and I'm just more confused because I have a metal pipe connected to my EGR instead of a hose.

I have a 1997 Ford Taurus GL 3.0 Vulcan Engine - thanks in advance for your help!!

The metal pipe that is connected to the EGR is connected to the exhaust manifold. The pipe feeds exhaust to the EGR. As for removing it, you just removed the nut that fastens the pipe to the EGR and unbolt the EGR from the intake. You may need to heat the nut around the pipe as it may be somewhat seized. As for cleaning it, you'd be better off to replace it if there is a problem with it.

is there a gasket that will need replaced as well?? Also, do those metal pipes ever need replaced?? and if so, does the local auto parts store carry this typr of pipe/hose?
