Download Circuit Description properly operating exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system will directly affect the air/fuel requirements of the Engine. Since the exhaust gas introduced into the air fuel mixture is an inert gas (contains very little or no oxygen), less fuel is required to maintain a correct air/fuel ratio. Introducing exhaust gas into the combustion chamber lowers combustion temperatures and reduces the formation of oxides of nitrogen (NOx) in the exhaust gas. Lower combustion temperatures also prevent detonation. If the EGR pintle were to stay closed, the inert exhaust gas would be replaced with air and the air/fuel mixture would be leaner. The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) would
