Default Intake off to replace egr?

I need to do something with my EGR, it's definitely causing some running vibration, white plugs, suspect it's stuck open.


Does the intake manifold have to come off or do the two 12mm bolts have clearance to the firewall?

If a KA24E, I didn't.


The cross-tube, to the exhaust pipe, was a royal PITA though. After days of soaking, I got the nut off at the exhaust pipe instead. Then replaced both parts.

Intake manifold doesn’t have to come off. But like lug nut said, the EGR cross tube IS a royal PITA! I recently replaced my tube with one from Scamazon, and the bends in the tube were straighter and it was MUCH Easier To install. I actually physically pushed the firewall back to reinstall the OEM tube. It was the only way I could figure out to get it back in and line up the threads to the EGR unit.

But no need to remove the intake manifold. 2x- 12mm wrenches gets the EGR nuts off.

So previously I had the EGR off when I had the motor out, pretty sure, but I *know* had the tube off so actually getting the other bracket off so I could access the two 12mm bolts was the hardest part.


Entire thing took abouit 1.5 hrs with several breaks inbetween


RUns much better, was stuck open as I suspected and now I'm at 99% perfect with 1% being plug wires I think....
