How to Change the EGR Valve on a 1989 F150 With 5.0

A failed exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve on the 5.0L engine of your 1989 Ford F-150 will cause drivability problems. If you have not replaced this valve before in your F-150, do not fret about it. The valve is readily accessible and the repair job is well within the scope of the home mechanic. You can change the valve at home in about an hour with a few common tools you might already own.

Things You'll Need
Wrench set
Short ratchet extension
Gasket scraper, if necessary
Small Phillips screwdriver, if necessary
Carburetor cleaner, if necessary
Shop rag, if necessary
New EGR valve gasket

Removing the EGR Valve
Open the hood and detach the negative (black) battery cable using a wrench.

Look for the EGR valve next to the end of the valve cover on the top of the engine. The valve is a small cylinder with an electrical connector on top and a tube connected to its base. Two bolts secure the EGR valve to the intake manifold.

Unplug the electrical connector and detach the thin vacuum line from the top of the valve by hand.

Disconnect the pipe from the bottom of the EGR valve with an open-end wrench.

Unfasten the two valve mounting bolts with a ratchet, short ratchet extension and socket and remove the valve along with the gasket underneath from the engine.

Clean the mounting base on the intake manifold with a gasket scraper and remove carbon buildup inside the intake opening with a small Phillips screwdriver, carburetor cleaner and a shop rag, if necessary.

Installing the New EGR Valve
Unfasten the three bolts holding the electrical component to the top of the old EGR valve and install it on the new valve with a ratchet, short ratchet extension and socket. This is an EGR valve position (EVP) sensor needed by the computer to determine exhaust gas flow.

Position the new EGR valve and new valve gasket on the intake manifold. Install the two mounting bolts and pipe retaining nut finger tight.

Tighten the two valve mounting screws with the ratchet, ratchet extension and socket and the pipe retaining nut with the open-end wrench.

Plug the electrical connector and attach the thin vacuum line to the top of the EGR valve.

Attach the negative (black) battery cable with the wrench and close the hood.

For Those Who Fought For It...
