Getting Back Into Recirculation

Not only is hesitation upon acceleration annoying, it can be downright dangerous, especially when stalling is involved. In some cases, the problem can be traced to a malfunctioning exhaust-gas-recirculation (EGR) system. The EGR system keeps oxides of nitrogen emissions (air pollutants that form when nitrogen and oxygen combine under high temperature) at an acceptable level by re-circulating exhaust gas through the intake manifold and into the combustion chambers. The exhaust gas curtails the formation of oxides of nitrogen by lowering the temperature inside the engine. The EGR should only introduce exhaust gas into the manifold after the engine is hot. If it does so while the engine is cold, the vehicle will hesitate and probably stall.
