To help accomplish this, most models utilize whats called an EGR system. This is a series of ports and valves designed to divert a small percentage of the expelled exhaust gases from the exhaust system, and redirect it back into the inlet manifold and back through the engine. This process aids in reducing an engine’s harmful emissions.
The down side, as you can see in these pictures, is the re-circulation is contributing to an excessive build up of sludgy deposits through the intake system, EGR system, EGR valves, and the inlet manifold and ports. This buildup restricts the airflow into the combustion chamber, leaving your engine struggling to breathe. This can have serious consequences including increased engine temperature, an increase in fuel consumption and noticeable decrease in engine power. Left unchecked, premature engine failure is possible.
