    EGR Valve Turn Off

    What happens when you turn off the EGR valve. I understand that when disconnected its in the closed position. Will the engine still run, will fuel mileage increase or decrease ??

    What do you mean by turning it off? How are you accomplishing that? If you are using a programmer then they make sure that it is in the closed position. This will not let the exhaust gases in to the intake causing it to be gummed up. EGR is to you engine as smoking is to your lungs.
