Is there a check engine light on. Your engine maybe missing or does it feel like something in the suspension

Yes the check engine light is on and I took it to auto zone they said it needs a new EGR valve. I was just wonder how much is it gon cost to get it fix and as far as the car shaking I think its the suspension because I change the brakes and it still was shaking a little but now it shakin alot but even worst when I press on the brakes.

Check the code again. I think if the egr code is p1404 there is a reprogram that your local dealer can do for it.

Not sure off hand. Call and they can give you a estimate. As for your girls car, check and see if the lower ball joints are loose, sway bar links are ok, or possible the cv joints in the axles are going bad.
