How do you tell if a EGR valve is clogged up? And how do you clean it out if it is clogged up?
Do you

1.Remove EGR valve from the engine.
2.Check EGR pintle for carbon build-up and sticking. Use carburetor cleaner and compressed air to clean minor deposits.
3.Check the vacuum diaphragm for leaks with a handheld vacuum pump.
4.If a problem is found, replace the EGR valve.
5.Reinstall the EGR valve on the engine using a new base gasket.
