Im going to try to make this as short as possible. Motorhome came in for a smog, registration address says Bakersfield. I smog in northern California. 2001 motorhome, Ford 6.8L V10. The vehicle had no underhood emission label. Time came to check for egr, visual/functional. The book says it's suppose to have an egr, years 2000,2001, 2002 (just in case). No egr was found. I ask for previous smogs. Smog was done in 2015.....EGR visual and functional done, in bakersfield. Double checked my emission vacuum routing book. It said EGR (if equipped). I grab my scan tool, to check monitors for EGR. All monitors are INC, except for EGR which says NA. We know the computer thinks it doesn't have an EGR. But with the previous smog and the book telling me its suppose to have it, I failed him and told him to get an underhood emission sticker from the Ford dealer or to go to the REFEREE. Thoughts? Opinions? What would have you done? Thanks
First MISTAKE? You went to the book.
BAR comes out and hassles you? Look picture of engine. FACTORY plate over where valve should be. No closed off lines running up from exhaust.
Look picture of scanned Data EGR N\A.
You can prove to the BAR ALL DAY LONG THAT THE BOOK IS WRONG. You went by KNOWN DATA.
You can prove it because you WROTE IT DOWN. Plus you should take pictures.
Beat the BAR at there own game. You have PROOF IN HAND.
Never make fun of the choices your wife makes. You were one of them.
The 6.8L V-10 in the "Motor Home" section of the Motor Manual says N/A for EGR.
I have seen the EGR on the 6.8 L V-10 in a pick-up truck.
The EGR valve "on applicable applications" is mounted on the right rear of the intake manifold.
When you say EGR functiional on this motorhome you must be refering to checking for the EGR monitor. cause I don't see anywhere in the book where BAR requires us to do a functional test of the EGR on 96 and newer OBD 1 trucks. Its not a bad idea tho.
