How to Replace an EGR Valve and Intake Gaskets on A Ford Freestyle 3.0L V6
You may recognize this vehicle form our "How to Diagnose Fault Codes P0171
& P0174". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ujt56nnw-2k
This 2006 Ford Freestyle 3.0L V6 came in with two codes and a lack of
power. We determined a vacuum leak was causing the codes. The Exhaust pipe connected to the EGR valve was
rusted to the point to where removal of the intake was necessary to
properly remove the pipe without damage. Under most circumstances you
replace the intake gaskets when removed, The 3.0L V6 has an upper and lower
plenum so that is two sets of gasket to replace.

Quick Tip-Throttle Cleaning - EricTheCarGuy
This one goes out to BowlingBallOut who posted a question about a sticky
throttle on his Saturn. It was a great question so I decided to make this
video in response to it. There are many different configurations of
throttle assemblies but for the most part if you have a throttle that is
sticking you might be able to fix it using the procedures in this video. I
am aware you may not able to purchase spray throttle cleaner in some states
now but I'm sure they have some alternative available at your local parts
One very important note here is that if you have a drive by wire throttle
(DBW), then I do NOT recommend this procedure. If you perform this
procedure on a DBW throttle body you may need to have the throttle reset in
order to get your engine to idle or even start. I only recommend this
procedure if you're trying to correct a problem with a sticking throttle.
If you have idle problems, I recommend you check out this article on my
