To control the Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx), there are only one method is available by Exhaust Gas Re-Circulation (EGR). NOx control
system that recycles a small part of the inert exhaust gas back through the intake manifold through EGR valve, to the combustion
temperature and this system is called EGR system.
OBD-II, systems were designed to maintain low emissions of in use vehicles, including light and medium duty vehicles.
As per Environment Protection Agency, (EPA) USA, and CARB standards the failure criteria for the catalyst monitor diagnostic are the
1.Linear EGR Flow rate: Abnormal low and high flow rate exceeding the specified low and high flow rate that will result in exceeding any
of the applicable FTP x 1.5.
2.EGR system component: Any component of the systems performing outside of the speciation’s that will result in exceeding any of the
applicable FTP x 1.5.
Enable Linear Flow Diagnostic means, the inputs to Enable linear EGR flow diagnostics are : No fault active on TPS, MAP , vehicle
speed, intake air temperature, Idle air control, EGR pintle , Misfire, Transmission and coolant temperature etc. EPA regulations required
linear EGR system monitoring to determine if there is a restriction in the exhaust gas recirculation systems. The diagnosis is based on the
fact in properly functioning systems, given all other things being constant and normal; there is a direct completion between linear EGR
Flow rate and manifold air pressure (MAP) changes.
