What was the high temperature over in Grand Rapids today? Over here in Grand Haven we got up to 50-52. I loved it, a lot of the snow melted away. It was a beautiful day. Can't wait till spring time comes around.

Sorry, stupid question. What is the EGR valve, where is it, and what does it do? How do I know when to change mine?

Exhaust Gas Recirculaion valve. Front right corner or engine. It recirculates a small amount of exhaust in small varying amounts to improve emissions.
