I went to a mechanic and he told me it is due to the EGR valve. He checked with the diagonostic computer.
1. Can I replace the valve myself?
2. Where it is located?
3. Is it required to lift the car to replace the valve or it can be done by just opening the hood.
4. From where can I buy a good quality valve at reasonable price.
