Is there a general price for the replacement of a EGR Solenoid and back pressure valve?

haha, it's mean to make fun of people because they don't know any better.

For an EGR valve, you're looking at $200 plus or minus $50 for an OEM from the dealers. It's around $120 for after market.

So you drive a mitsubishi 3000? I don't know the price for an EGR for one of those, but it's prolly more expensive. After all, if mitsubishi touched it, it's probably faster than all the other car parts :P. That must make it more expensive.

Man, the easiest way to actually find out the price is to call the dealership and just say "I WOULD LIKE A QUOTE FOR THE EGR OF A 95 ALTIMA". Then they will tell you something you won't like. Then you'll probably call some place that sells after market parts. I hate calling to ask about the price too, but it has to be done.

BTW, if there's anything wrong with your EGR, the car would shake while you're idling. The shaking would be worse when the car is warm.

no....the engine light will come on if the EGR flow isn't within a narrow window....if it flows too little, or too much, it'll set off the light.

Altima 2.4L engines, by far the most common failure with the EGR system that I see, is the reference line from the exhaust port to the transducer deteriates and rips open. A 50 cent fix

Well I learnt something there. Do you think that a similar line in my impala would be causing a misfire? There was a code for the EGR on my impala but the mechanic just said to replace the EGR. I figured it wasn't that simple, but who am I to argue with a mechanic? So I replaced it anyways, and the misfire is still there.. BTW, I still have the old EGR valve and it's sitting right beside me. It looks like new, that's why I was sketchy to replace it.

your engine uses a much different EGR system...there's no vacuum lines, its all operated through solenoids mounted directly to the intake

LOL you know your GM cars too well man. I should have known that considering I've seen the system hundreds of times.
