OLDS ALERO V-6 P1404 EXHAUST GAS RECIRCULATION (EGR)

2000 Oldsmobile Other

Do this code mean that I need to replace the egr valve on my 2000 Olds Alero (V-6) The code is
P1404 Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) Valve Pintle Stuck Open? I reset the code after
running sea foam through the intake manifold hoping that that would unstick the valve and also to clean the injectors. The car runs rough in the mornings for a few minutes while warming up. But once warm it runs just fine. The milaage on the car is about 110,000 miles.

thanks
