EGR Valves

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.

  • Injection-molded high-temperature polymer prevents temperature-related failures

  • 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

  • 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
