Does the 2006 v8 have an egr valve if so where is it located?

My 07 does. It's directly across from the driver side valve cover on the fender. The black plastic piece that's either made in Mexico or Canada.

That is not an EGR valve. It is an Evaporative Emission Cannister Purge Valve. An EGR would have a connection to the exhaust manifold.

For the 2005 Mustang GT, the following link shows that those with either a BKT2 or BKT3 code(autos?) have an EGR valve, and those with either a CDC2 or CDC3 code(manuals?) do not have an EGR valve. FWIW, my 05 manual GT does not have an EGR valve.

I don't know how this plays out for 06 and later models?

That's what I thought too. It does have a connection to the intake which an EGR valve does. I just never followed where the other hose coming into the valve came from. Still not sure where it comes from :headscratch:.

It runs back to the cannister underneath the gas tank. It controls fuel vapor flow from the charcoal cannister back to the engine and is operated by engine vacuum.

Ahah! Learn something new on this car everyday. I still wonder if some 05+ models do have an EGR though because my PCM has thrown a code for EGR in the past when I was having some cam problems.

I wounder if its just Cali. cars?
That was my 1st thought too, but it states that all of them meet Calif. emission regulations. However, I did read on other forums that the BK codes are for autos, and the CD codes are for manuals. But I could not find any info as to why the autos require EGR's if those forums are correct.

Didn't you say in another post that you had replaced that piece?

Yes, I did replace it because it was throwing a code for the EGR valve, but it turned out to be a false alert. It was actually a problem with my cam install. It was making that horrible sound due to not torquing the front cam seal all the way down. After I fixed that, it never came back.

Do you recall if the p/n was 4R3Z9C915AA?

I don't think so. These are the numbers on the top of the original one which I'm pretty sure he used to look it up at the parts dept:

7U5A 9G641 FA 8302B - This one made in Mexico.

This is the part number off the new one I got:

7U5A 9G641 FA 7A31A - This one made in Canada.

IIRC he only used the characters from "FA" onward.

P.S. Anybody need a new one from Canada never used...$20. I think it was somewhere between $50 - $70 but don't quote me :)
