2001 Ford Escape EGR Valve Keeps Cracking
\015 We have replaced this part 2 times in 2 weeks at $75 a pop. It just cracked again causing the car to shake when idling. We also had the exhaust fixed, a tune up and the carrier bearings repaired within the past two weeks. \015\012\015\012What is the cause of the EGR continuously cracking now?\015

If it is cracking at the mounting bolts, it is almost surely an uneven mounting surface or improper torque on the mounting bolts. Check for old gasket material left behind under new gasket or burrs/damage to the mounting surface itself. It is machined and needs to be perfectly smooth. It should not require excessive tightening either. Snug with a regular combination wrench. I do not have the exact torque specifications without looking at the service manual. Sorry. If it is cracking elsewhere, get back to me. I will figure it out for you. I hate to hear of unnecessary repeat repairs. Good luck to you.
