EGR Leak Empty
PostSubject: EGR Leak   EGR Leak EmptyThu Sep 16, 2021 11:19 pm

Hi, I have a 96 Buick Riviera with the 3800 Supercharge after taking off the EGR valve to clean it I noticed a leak coming from the passage on the side nearest the valve. I have tightened the nut down as much as I can with a wrench (not enough space for a torque or socket wrench) and there is still a leak. Any ideas on how to fix the leak?EGR Leak 20210912

That looks like the EGR line.



If yours is in good shape, I would unbolt it and do one of two things. Either use some high temperature RTV, or, buy some exhaust gasket material and make a gasket.
