Thanks for your reply, but I hate to spend the $150 on a new EGR if something else could be causing the EGR to act this way. You say it couldn't hurt.
Should I replace an EGR @ 90,000 mi as a routine maintenance anyway? I just paid $2000 for this car and hate to put a bunch of $$ in unecessary parts, trying to troubleshoot it. One mechanic told me the EGR wouldn't cause a miss at criusing speed anyway. Maybe I have 2 separate problems? What other components should I check or monitor with the OBD scanner to diagnose this problem? Or should I just shut up and spend the $$ on an EGR and whatever else might be needed after that. I just hate to be a "parts changer"
Answer to PM: No you can check it with a vacuum pump, see if it operater freely and returns to the closed posistion, Does yours have any electrical connectors? Or just vacuum? And is there a P or an N stamped on it?
