WICHITA, Kan. – BG Products, Inc., has developed a solution to effectively clean diesel EGR systems without costly teardown or parts replacement.

“If your diesel has drivability issues, don’t search ‘Diesel EGR.’ You’ll probably find that results point to EGR Delete Service. Don’t fall for it,” said Jay Erwin, Director of BG Proving Ground. “The new BG Diesel EGR System Service is a safer, more effective solution.”


To the diesel owner who doesn’t prioritize maintenance, EGR can be a 4-letter word. Think about it, the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system is feeding noxious emissions back into your engine. It’s problematic.

Without proper maintenance, particulates can build in the EGR system: EGR valve, cooler and pathways. The result is:

  • Rough running and poor acceleration
  • High fuel consumption
  • Turbocharger failure
  • EGR trouble codes


The solution may seem as easy as removing the problem. EGR delete kits are a common solution passed around diesel owners and on diesel forums.

But an EGR delete is like cutting off the nose to spite the face for the following reasons:

  • It’s illegal.
  • It will set the check engine light.
  • Your diesel won’t run as cool or as clean.
  • It will allow noxious NOx emissions to pollute the air.
  • It’s possible your EGR system issues were a sign of a larger issue.
