As a basic manufacturer of emission components, NAPA® Echlin® maintains complete quality control throughout the manufacturing process.
With our expertise and manufacturing processes in place, NAPA® Echlin® is able to offer high-quality parts for all major emission control systems and evaporative emission control systems. As a result, we provide the comprehensive coverage for domestic and import vehicles that professional technicians need to keep cars running clean.
“Complete quality control throughout the manufacturing process.”
To reduce or eliminate the amount of smog-creating pollutants emitted during the combustion process, the 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 NAPA® Echlin® EGR Valve is calibrated for precision performance. To ensure trouble-free operation, all NAPA® Echlin® EGR Valves must pass comprehensive quality testing, including computer-controlled bench testing for resistance, leakage, and response and flow rates.
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
Injection-molded high-temperature polymer prevents temperature-related failures
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
The EGR Position sensor detects the movement and position of the EGR valve pintle. The EGR Pressure sensor detects exhaust gas flow through the EGR passage.
Manufactured at our TS14001 and ISO/TS16949 certified facility, NAPA® Echlin® EGR Position and Pressure Sensors use the finest components, and every sensor must pass meticulous quality control to assure that each EGR sensor’s voltage output measurement will always be accurate. Each sensor undergoes a rigorous end-of-line test. During this analysis, we validate output voltages to exacting specifications to ensure reliable, trouble-free operation.

Sensors pass meticulous quality control to assure accurate voltage output
The idle air control (IAC) valve is located on the throttle body of fuel-injected engines, where it works with the vehicle’s ECU to electrically regulate airflow to the engine to ensure smooth idling. We manufacture Idle Air Control Valves at our ISO/ TS16949-certified facilities in Greenville, SC, and Reynosa, Mexico, respectively. A key aspect of the manufacturing process is the load testing, which makes sure each actuator delivers a greater force than actual load.
Precision-machined housing ensures proper air flow to engine as required by ECU during changing load requirements
Precision-machined solenoid components generate magnetic force to actuate plunger
Anodized aluminum housing resists corrosion better than regular passivation treatment
According to our research, more than 70 million vehicles (model years 1995 through 2005) on the road today have entered “sweet spot” years for IAC repairs, which means they have an IAC that will need to be replaced soon. Choose high-quality NAPA® Echlin® Idle Air Control (IAC) Valves to take advantage of this growing repair opportunity.
The OE idle air control valves are prone to corrosion due to harsh environmental conditions. To make sure our NAPA® Echlin-manufactured IACs last, we give them an anodized coating that is thicker and more robust than the OE coating. As you can see from the results of our salt-fogging test below, our coating withstands corrosion better than the OE:
