The check engine light has come on in my Regal. I had an auto supply store check the code and it said it the EGR valve was stuck. I have had no other symptoms to make me think there was even something wrong with the car. There is no sputtering, hard start, hesitation that I have noticed as of yet. Since I live in an area that has emission control I need to get this fix (not to mention I don't want to pollute the air any more than I have too). Now for my questions.

1. Is it possible that this engine light is due to a faulty sensor?

2. Is it possible to clean or otherwise repair the EGR valve?

3. How difficult is this repair? Could I, as a reasonably mechanically inclined person, make the repair on my own?

4. Is there any place I can find a repair manual for replacing the EGR valve? I have already looked on www. Eautorepair. Com with little luck.

Any help would be great! Thanks

If you can post the code it may help, TSB's are plentiful on emmission related problems, also where the wiring harness passes through the A/C accumulator, there is a bulliten about the wires chaffing there, check that area for any worn thru wiring.
