I have an EGR fault light showing and have replaced the top valve but the garage says it has a top and bottom valve is the correct? I'm unsure if this service is free?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Christine, Thank You for writing into AskPatty! First off I am not sure if your Avenger is a 2.0, 2.4, 2.7, or 3.5L engine. To address the concern of your Exhaust Gas Recirculatory Valve (EGR), there is only (1) EGR Valve. If your vehicle is under the factory warranty it should be a covered item under the dealership. Hope This Helps! A. J. Valle

Lori Johnson, Owner and Instructor at Ladies Start Your Engines Dear Christine, I've not heard of 2 EGR valves, but all vehicles are different. If you had a check engine light on and you replaced the valve yourself, you still need to have the code cleared with the use of a scan tool. After that you can see if it comes back on, then you'll know that there is still a problem. Lori Johnson www.ladiesstartyourengines.com
