Question

where is the exhaust gas recirculation valve location and how to fix

Answer

Hi Kelly, I assume thus is the coupe Sebring, not the sedan or convertible which don't use the 3.0L engine. The egr valve is very close to the throttle body and the distributor at the front of the engine, to the side just a bit. It is supplied by a small diameter pipe that branches off the front exhaust manifold, and in turn it sends the exhaust gas to the intake manifold/throttle body. It has a round vacuum actuator (vacuum hose attached to that) and a flange between that and the valve body mounted in that small pipe. Inside the flage area is the valve stem (a rod with a circumferential slot into which you can insert the tip of a screwdriver and thus move the valve stem back and forth, against spring-action that tries to close it). Often that action get sluggish due to 'gum', so spray the stem where it enters the body of the valve with some WD-40 and move the stem with the tip of a screwdriver to loosen that up. Please 'rate' my answer (see below). Thanks, Roland
