    EGR on Z12XE?

    I tried to find the EGR on my Z12XE engine the other night, and I'm buggered if I can see it.

    I'd like to find it to give it a bit of a clean and check it's operating properly.

    Is it below the intake manafold, or hidden somewhere else?

    Im not sure why you would want to 'clean' the egr valve as its not something that requires cleaning.

    Never the less.

    You will need to drain the coolant as on the z12 the egr is coolant cooled.

    The egr is bolted on the head just under the plug for the DIS pac, i think its 3 E12 bolts from memory, but if i were you, id leave well alone.

    with the EGR being an exhaust gas recirculation valve it gets choked with carbon, common problem on vauxhalls, thats why they need cleaning

    Ta, I'll have a wee look. I'll probably not remove it, just more interested where it was. The EGR on the X16SZR was easy to remove and clean, just two bolts.
