I searched around but couldn't quite find what I'm looking for -

'01 Impala 3800 EGR valve .. What years 3800 would this exact same EGR span across? It looks like I need one and right now I'm hoping to score a good used one vs having to buy a new AC Delco. Last time I was at the yard there were 2 Impalas but both were 3.4s. There was a 3800 Bonneville or two though..

As far as a new one goes.. RockAuto lists 2 different AC Delcos for the 3800.. how would I know which one I need if I do have to go new?

Thanks!

you can always check the reviews to make sure
difference is one is the OE and the other the PROFESSIONAL series



the PROFESSIONAL series might have a slight change to the way it's made

ACDELCO PROFESSIONAL 214-2274

Okay..... Well only the more expensive one ('Professional' apparently) has reviews, which all 10 mention nothing in the difference between the two.. but now after reading them it gets me thinking about the warranty on it and who will replace the part under warranty if need be. It seems that a couple people had issues inside of 12 months and were not able to get it replaced under warranty thru Amazon.

How is it you were able to tell that one was a 'Professional'? Price I'm guessing?

Only GM dealers will warranty GM parts. You would bring your car to the dealer. They would write up a repair order, & they would check the EGR valve. If it is indeed bad, they would give you another one for free. But if it was OK, you would have to pay them the "check out fee". Really, how can Amazon verify an EGR valve is bad? In my 30 years experience, I would pay the extra $ to get the OEM part. GARY

How much is the check out fee usually cost?

Check out fee is usually a half hour of labor. They usually waive this fee if you have the work done. Of course, should the part in question actually be defective, there is no fee. GARY

True about Amazon not being able to tell I guess. Okay well, no warranty it is then I guess Confused
I can then see why other manufacturers are explored for the do-it-yourselfer.

I also had gotten some feedback from a GM tech, who said the 12578034 is the OE part for my car, and that the "Delco Professional" is an aftermarket supplier. Good or bad he had no input either way.

A tip for looking up compatibility from year to year and car to car.

The Autozone and O'Rielly Web sites are a helpful for looking for parts fitment.
Go to the web site ( autozone is easier) pick a store close to your location.
Add your car .
Then look up the part.
Click on the part details and at the bottom of the discription is a Fitment chart
It will list all the cars the part will fit..

EGR for 2001 Impala fits 2000 and 2001 Impala and Monte with 3800
Also 1995 thru 1999 Monte carlo and 1998 and 1999 Lumina
It also fits Several Buick models, Oldsmobiles and other cars.

So next time you need to know if a part will swap to a different year of engine .. It is a snap to look up.
It has a pretty good accuracy rate.

I'm curious... I have a 2001LS (3.8L motor) with 120,000 miles and still have the original EGR valve... What are the symptoms of a bad, or going bad, EGR valve?

Heck, look up the part in the parts catalog on the AC Delco website, then look up cross references. Way easier and better to go to the source than to rely on info from websites like Autozone or O'Reilly's that may not have the trim levels listed properly.

Give the GM dealer the vin #, & get the real GM part number. Then cross reference that # in the AC Delco catalog. For best results, get the OE part. It's tailor made for your application. The other line is cheaper, & made to fit a wider variety of 3800 cars, but not exactly your car. GARY

even with a trip package screwed up there is still a engine vin code that the computer uses to find the right motor for that car
