What does EGR stand for?

EGR stands for exhaust gas recirculation, which is exactly what the valve does.

Does the EGR valve only limit dangerous emissions?

As well as lowering NOx emissions, the EGR valve also helps increase engine efficiency and lower fuel consumption. 

Are all EGR valves the same?

No, there are different types depending on the vehicle and its age, but the EGR valve calibration process is the same. 

How long does calibration take?

Fitting a new EGR valve can  take varying amounts of time depending on the vehicle. But calibrating it can be done in a matter of minutes.
