I agree. My 97 Fairlane was runnin like s**t after running so good for so long, found that the EGR was stuck shut. Cleaned the f**k up, runs better but still s**t. Reason is because the EGR valve still isn't opening and closing like a brand new one. So I am buying a new one and f**k off the old EGR. I will let you know how I went. But yes, if you are buying a Ford V8 (injected). Check the EGR operation, it can turn a smile into a frown in an instant.

EGR can play a major part in how the engine goes exspecially efi engines you can try a blanking plate inbetween EGR and manifold

Too many c unts giving misinformation on here...

If it has f uck all to do with how an engine goes, how come my c unting Fairlane was running like s**t until I swapped it over with another EGR (Thanks FTG Autosalvage)?? The c unting car miraculously doesn't fu ckin stall at the lights anymore, and the pinging is gone. That s**t sorta contributes to how an engine goes.

Since the EGR is a vital part of emissions control in fuel injected engines, if it fu cks out, so does your car.

Fu ck fuel injection, I am gonna get back into a real ford. An old carby 351 with either straight LPG or fu ckin heads adapted for Unleaded.

This is true at 'Wide Open Throttle', as it is not used.

There is EGR information out there, if you look.
The search function is a good idea...
Other forums also have plenty of information.

Prob too much foul language as well.

You're correct to note there is a lot of misinformation around, thankfully we have people like XR9Ute to set the record straight.

If you think new EGR is a silver bullet to make your car run like new, i think you might be sadly disappointed.

So how long do I have to wait for it to FU as I turfed the EGR probably 8 years ago and my engine's still running perfect :roll:

The only C*** on here is you!
Of course EGR will cause problems if it's f**k but just blaming EGR for all of Ford performance woes is the kind of dumbass s**t that we can expect from f**k like you who wouldn't know their head from the a***!!
