    It is illegal to remove any component of the emmissions system. So to tell you how would put the site into a legal position.

    Fixing it will be the least costly option, in the long run. EGR will make your rings and combustion chamber last longer and give you better fuel economy.

    This is not meant to open up a discussion on egr deletion, which is only an option for an off road or track only vehicle. OK thanks guys!

    Check the egr tube off the manifold for cracks--notice on this metal tube are 2 small rubber hoses. Remove these and check the ends for cracking or holes.

    The other end of the hoses go to the DPFE sensor. Make sure it is not melted.

    THe random mis fires could be due to bad fuel.

    the speedometer sensor is on top of the rear differential. It may need to be cleaned or replaced.
