How To Clean an EGR Valve Without Removing It
In this episode of Driveway Dudes, Paul and Will shows you how to clean your EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) Valve, Inlet Manifold and Inlet Valves without removing any of them. This is a home experiment and an unbiased use of JLM Diesel Air Intake & EGR Cleaner. Similar products are available. This product is designed to dissolve carbon deposits, gum and varnish build up. It should restore air flow to the engine thus improving power and acceleration while reducing Exhaust smoke. Paul & Will did their best to follow the instructions on the can. They adjusted the throttle and amount sprayed accordingly. This product is a hazardous material, it is extremely flammable and harmful to skin, lungs and eyes. We strongly recommend wearing gloves and eye protection. Please read the instructions and warnings carefully. If you cannot get direct access to the turbo an alternative would be to spray (less effective) into the air duct in the direction of the turbo but please remember to remove the MAF (mass airflow)/air intake sensor first as the cleaner may damage it.

HOW-TO VIDEO: Remove EGR Valve off of a Mazda Protege5
This is a video I made with my phone when I decided to replace the EGR Valve.Sorry if the camera was shaky, but it is what it is when you are recording a video while trying to remove this valve for the first time. Sorry if any of my terminology is off. I realize some of it was incorrect when referring to things such as the sway bar or "wires". I hope this helps anyone interested in removing this valve without having to take the throttle body and intake manifold off!
