EGR valve

I am currently broke down in Whitehall Montana. Need to know the easiest access to my EGR valve . Two options that I can see , one is remove air cleaner assembly, two is access through removable floor panel in bedroom . Plus does anyone know how to remove the panel on bedroom floor ?

Dumb question, but I am good for this...
Did you try tapping it with a hammer? They get sooted up and sometimes it's a quick fix to get you to a shop...
May want to include your engine size..
Good luck.

You don't say what the issue is, other than EGR. My coach had a couple of EGR light when new, first 6K - 8K miles. Cummins pulled it and cleaned and then threw about a dozen codes. Eventually no more issues. With that said, it was drivable with the heck engine light.

EGR

Turned out to be the EGR valve, took two days to get the parts as it was a long weekend , four hours to change easy access through engine bay door . We sat a total of 4 days . Thankfully the old bus has good heat .

Been there done that 2x so far in 30k miles on a 2007 500 Cummins ISM. They covered the 2nd time under warranty. You should put you coach info in your signature so everyone knows what year/make/model you're talking about although I do see you have an Essex.

I also have a 2007 with ISM, 59k and no EGR problems. I recently installed the ugly fix to ensure that I wonít have any problems in the future.

What kind of symptoms were you getting? I have a 2009 ISM that bought used two years ago and not sure what if anything has been done with the EGR.

When it goes you will have no power , just an idle mode . If you try to accelerate it will bog , Miss fire and blow black smoke , all you can do is idle along and hope there is no big hills before you can get pulled over somewhere safe .
