The principle of EGR is described in Chapter 1. In this chapter a test that can
be performed on some EGR valves is considered. The exhaust gas recirculation
valve permits the passage of a regulated amount of exhaust gas, into the intake
side of the engine, under the control of the engine ECM. The effect is to reduce
temperature in the combustion chamber below approximately 1800ŽC and this
prevents the formation of the oxides of nitrogen. In order to function at its best,
EGR is used only under certain conditions, e.g. at cruising speeds and during
reasonable acceleration. In order to determine the state of the EGR valve, i.e. is it
on or off?, the system is equipped with a sensor. A common form of EGR sensor

is the voltage divider (variable resistor) type that is mounted on top of the EGR
valve so that the position of the EGR valve is represented by a voltage.
