Help How to clean EGR valve

Hi All,

I think I may have an EGR valve problem. I have read loads of posts about the benefits of cleaning but, try as I have, I cannot find a post that explains how to actually do it.

If anyone can direct me to a post that describes how to clean the valve I would be most grateful.

Also having a health check done by an Alfa dealer in Newcastle on Monday. Fingers crossed for no big troubles.

Re: How to clean EGR valve

I have cleaned it on a 2.2dCi Laguna Estate... It involves removing it and lots of carb cleaner (that's what my friendly RAC man suggested). It's a bit or a dirty job, but onced cleaned it worked fine. I have no idea where the EGR valve is on a Alfa engine though, perhaps someone else can offer advice....
