96 T-Bird V8 EGR valve

Posting for friend who's having difficulty locating it. Says it appears to be behind manifold( or obstructed by it ). Any tips for R & R, please. Bill W

If the reason he wants to replace it is a "low EGR flow" diagnostic code, it's probably not the valve itself. My '95 has several gismos to do what the older car used a single EGR valve for. Most likely, the EGR passages in the throttle to manifold fitting are clogged with gunk. You need to remove the TB, then the elbow that goes to the intake manifold. The channels I'm speaking of are between the gasket and the manifold. You can do a Google search of this newsgroup using the computer code and get gobs of help and advise.

throttle body to the manifold that is giving you trouble.. its a psssage that goes behing the throttle body to the EGR valve in the int. manifold that is clogged with carbon deposits/junk... go to www.contour.org that is a ford contour group, but they will have a piece on cleaning the passages and to put on a new throttle body gasket and a new gasket on the EGR valve.. probably cost you $2.00 for the parts and use dental picks or wire to clean out the passage and your problems will be over.. the Trouble code was i think.... P0401...... do a search for code 401 or P0401 and see if it comes up just post there and ask about your veh. and see if someone can find it for you... hope this helps.
