Well, I replaced the EGR yesterday; So far so good, The check engine light cleared.
The original EGR looks pretty clean, I was surprised I didn't see any clogged ports.
The EGR pipe that connects the EGR to the catalytic converter was a Bear to get loosened!
I was worried about cracking the intake manifold, trying to get it loose.
Good 'ole PB Blaster saved me a lot of grief; I don't know if would've gotten it loose.
It amazes me that 4 autoparts stores didn't have the EGR in stock. I guess if I would've ordered one ahead of time; I could've saved a little cash.
I bought a OE Motorcraft replacement from a local Ford dealership for $180.
