Cleaning of Air Gas Recirculator Valve

Clean the air gas recirculator valve as follows:‪

  1. Remove all old gasket material from the AGR valve and the intake manifold elbow mating surfaces.
  2. Clean the AGR valve and related parts with clean fuel oil.
    cautions

    To avoid personal injury when blow drying, wear adequate eye protection (safety glasses or face plate) and do not exceed 276 kPa (40 lb/in. 2 ) air pressure.‪

  3. Dry the AGR valve and related parts with compressed air.
Section 6.4.3.1
Inspection of Air Gas Recirculator

Inspect the air gas recirculator valve as follows:‪

  1. Visually check the AGR valve gasket surface area for nicks.
    1. If the AGR valve gasket surface area is nicked, repair as necessary. Refer to "6.4.3.2 Testing of Air Gas Recirculator Valve" .
    2. If the AGR valve gasket surface area is not nicked, proceed with step 2 of inspection.
  2. Visually check the AGR valve gasket surface area for burrs.
    1. If the AGR valve gasket surface area is burred, repair as necessary. Refer to "6.4.3.2 Testing of Air Gas Recirculator Valve" .
    2. If the AGR valve gasket surface area is not burred, proceed with step 3 of inspection.
  3. Visually check the AGR valve gasket surface area for scratches.
    1. If the AGR valve gasket surface area is scratched, repair as necessary. Refer to "6.4.3.2 Testing of Air Gas Recirculator Valve" .
    2. If the AGR valve gasket surface area is not scratched, reuse the component. Refer to "6.4.3.2 Testing of Air Gas Recirculator Valve" .
Section 6.4.3.2
Testing of Air Gas Recirculator Valve

Test the air gas recirculator as follows:‪

  1. Connect an air supply line to the AGR valve vacuum port.
  2. Visually observe that the AGR valve opens when air is applied.
    1. If the AGR valve did not open, replace the component. Refer to "6.4.4 Installation of Air Gas Recirculator Valve" .
    2. If the AGR valve did open, reuse the component. Refer to "6.4.4 Installation of Air Gas Recirculator Valve" .

Section 6.4.4
