About EGR Valves
A <Model> EGR valve (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) is fitted to reduce your car's Nitrogen Oxide emissions. It does this by recirculating some of the engine's exhaust gas back into the engine as this helps to reduce the combustion temperature and therefore the amount of NOx produced by the engine.
The <Model> EGR valve is located between the exhaust and inlet manifold usually on the back of the engine.
The EGR valve is responsible for recirculating or re directing exhaust gases back into the engine through the inlet manifold. The <Model> EGR valve is generally controlled or regulated by pressure or VAC lines to ensure that it is opened and closed at the correct time.
Your EGR valve can stop working due to leaks in the VAC lines, blockage due to soot deposits or failure of the actuator/control mechanism.
- The word Audi is a Latin translation of the word Horch, which incidentally is where we get the word audio from!
- Volkswagen owns the Audi brand, after buying it from Daimler-Benz way back in the 1960s.
- Not happy with just making one of the first automated cars, Audi even built and raced one in the Pikes Peak Hill race, setting records for speed even without a driver.
- Audi was founded after the German engineer August Horch fell out with the co-founder of his first manufacturing company. He called the new company August Horch Automobilwerke GmbH, which doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue.
- Audi has been responsible for many firsts in car design. One of the most impactful was the introduction of the dual-clutch gearbox, first seen in the Quattro S1 E2. Now, of course, they are commonplace.
