I am working on a 2001 Regal. The car started running worse and worse. Sluggish, not wanting to accelerate or shift. Today it finally died. I found a hole burned through the intake manifold where the EGR apparently stayed open. I am guessing this is not a rare occurance and would like the most likely cause/reason for the EGR to stay open. The heat burned through the loom and electric tape on the wiring harness that lays on the intake and started to melt the fuel line that lays right next to it. This is obviously a bad situation, very dangerous. A lady with 2 small children drives this car. Please advise.
