Does A Rav4.2 1Azfe Petrol 2.0L Vvti Have An Egr Valve?

Recommended Posts

I ask because I am sure that I read somewhere that it does but now can't find any info. I did think it was just diesels. If it does I will plan to clean it at some point just to keep things maintained.

Cheers,

Lee

That's not a EGR valve it's only the fume purge from the tank.

Yes - the PDF shows the closed circuit breathing system that minimises the release of hydrocarbons to atmosphere. Many petrol engines have an EGR system - the science is different for petrols and diesels but the end result is still the same - a reduction in the exhaust emission of oxides of nitrogen to atmosphere (NOX). Few would have a catalytic converter, DPF or EGR installed from choice on their car, but manufacturers need to fit such devices in order to meet ever tightening emission legislation. MOT regulations have tightened and will tighten further to ensure that these devices, if fitted by the manufacturer - are still fitted and are fully operational.
