Re: Another EGR valve question...(More info)

TR I think posted a while back about drilled jets and how bad an idea it is because they are drilled at a taper when they are made,So that may have been your problem.
DO NOT loose the gasket from your EGR because from what I have read it has a metering hole in it (Special size based on your engine )Even if you get a new one you may need to match it up to the new metering inserts they give you.

I don't know if they have an Autozone or another chain store by you but they loan tools out,you pay for them and when you bring them back you get your money back.A hand vacume pump is one of the tools they loan out.
EGR valves can be cleaned ,clean all the carbon build up out of it.Put it back on,let your engine idle and open it manually and the Idle should break up.
