Exhaust Gas Recirculation

 

What is EGR And why do I care?

  • Computer controlled.
  • sensitive to soot and dirty air.
  • affects emissions, power and fuel economy

 

EGR is a high-tech solution to emissions.

 
But when it’s not working right – it’s costing you!
Routine Maintenance of your EGR system prevents costly replacement later and better fuel economy now!
 

REDUCING EMISSIONS

 
Diesel engines are known for emitting black smoke and diesel smell, but that is only part of the pollution that needs to be controlled. Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR), Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF), and Selective Catalyst Reduction (SCR) work together to reduce visible and invisible pollutants.
 

SO…WHY DO YOU CARE?

 
EGR mixes ‘dirty’ exhaust gas with clean intake air. When that happens, soot and particulate matter can deposit on the working parts of the EGR system sapping the power and fuel economy from your EGR equipped Diesel engine.
 

THE BARDAHL SOLUTION

 
EGRExcel Diesel has invested in a state-of-the-art technology that permits us to clean the EGR, Turbo, EGR Cooler, and DPF without removing and replacing components. This permits us to offer an economically sensible preventive maintenance service to you!
 

How often should I have this service performed?

 
There is no hard-and-fast rule for when to do it. Some engines are more prone to EGR malfunctions than others. Ford 6.0L,6.4L,6.7l and Dodge 6.7L engines are particularly sensitive. But every engine should be cleaned regularly. We recommend every two years or 30,000 miles, whichever comes first.
 

BUT MY TRUCK IS ALREADY MALFUNCTIONING

 
Our new technology often permits us to repair ‘coded’ filters, and loss of power due to build-up on turbochargers and EGR systems. Your alternative is a very expensive labor and parts bill to get your vehicle performing like it should.
 

FUEL SYSTEM SERVICE, TOO!

 
While we are servicing your EGR systems, we can clean your fuel system and injectors, too. This routine service will further improve your fuel economy and power output.
