This engines EGR valve has a built in computer sensor for the EGR valve position, It is not recommended to attempt to bypass it for this reason, usually the valve does not fail, it gets clogged with carbon from the combustion process, if you will have a fuel injection service done on your vehicle every 6 months you will eliminate virtually all EGR related problems. ,this is a link to input in your browser that shows you the location.Please RATE my service on the rating page, I will continue to answer any additional questions you may have, until you are completely satisfied with my answers, Thank You for using Just
