EGR valve, engine maintenance
a: An EGR valve ~
b: Trying to run your gas grill with burned gas
What: "Using an EGR valve is like trying to run your gas grill with burned gas fumes, instead of fresh propane. It just doesn't burn after it's been burned once already. It was a way to get combustion temperatures down in the engine, by extinguishing the flame front a bit with exhaust gas- otherwise they'd have to inject something else in there to cool the burn,"
