EGR Valve Spacer Plates
The exhaust gas recirculation system helps the engine to run more efficiently and can improve gas mileage and emissions when it is working properly. When it is malfunctioning, lots of problems can occur. The dash light may come on that there is a problem with the engine. The engine may begin to run rough or rich. It the worst case scenario, the engine may not start at all, or will not stay on for very long. It may be a problem that needs to be handled immediately, or there may be a bit of time. The EGR valve spacer plate is a component of the proper function of the EGR valve which opens and closes to create optimal engine performance. The spacer plate is pretty much a gasket type part that keeps the valve tight. Replacing the spacer plate means that many small parts must be removed and replaced in the process.
