EGR Valve Location on '05 Gr Cherokee 5.7L

My Check Engine light came on, and after testing found our the EGR Valve is throwing the codes.

Does anyone know where the EGR Valve is located? Is this an easy job to replace by yourself?

Thanks!

super easy. Dealer will charger you 300 plus to swap it out.
48 dollar part online.

It takes three bolts and the pipe removal. bolts are tough to get to

Remove air box and look under alternator. The egr valve has a long aluminum pipe that you can chase into the intake

It's on the passenger side front of the head, as said, below the intake tube above the alternator. There are two bolts holding the EGR tube (to the EGR valve) that goes to the intake and two bolts holding the unit to the cylinder head. The bottom bolt is a bear, but I got mine out without messing with the alternator. Some folks have had to cut the bolt off or move the alternator. When you unbolt the EGR tube, DO NOT remove it, just tie it out of the way. Someone on one of these forums removed it (stuck) and tore the rubber seal that seals it into the intake manifold. This will cost you a trip to the dealer and probably a few day wait for them to get it. When you install the new valve (I paid $54 from AutoZone) I cut about 3/16 in. off the bolt end, chamfered it real well, and then ground down the collar/lip on the bolt head. Next time it'll be a 30 minute job, instead of an hour + 40 this time. How many miles on yours? They seem to go around 40-60K. I had 54K on mine. Hope this helps.

EGR valve 2005 Grand Cherokee, 4.7L

The EGR valve was surprisingly simple to replacement BUT give yourself at least 2-3 hours.

I replaced mine as well - very cheap part from Napa. It is a PITA to change, however. On my '06 5.7, the alternator ended up just being in the way of one of the bolts. Had to remove the resonator box and all the covers and pull one of the polts on the alternator. This allowed me to swing it just enough to get the bolt out of the EGR valve. As Mario said, it's a super easy job, but give yourself 2-3 hours to deal with all the BS that isn't even related to the EGR valve.
