    The EGR for those that do not know is on driver side back of engine down a few inches. It's black and has a red electrical connection.

    Tools needed are a T30 or torx 30, really need 3-4 inch extension. I picked one up at Sears in some silly kit for 20 bucks.

    1.) remove the electrical connection, just tab on top.

    2) use the T30 to remove the two long fine thread screws, one on top which you can see, and one on bottom which
    Can't see.

    3) there is a bracket and a line and hoses that are in the way, rotate the EGR counter clockwise maybe a quarter turn so you can remove the EGR.

    4) I cleaned mine, gm new ones are on eBay for 125, either clean really well or replace with new one.

    5) reinstall and connect electrical connection. I tested mine not in to make sure it would close prior to putting back in car, kinda smells with smoke to do that. I also lubricants the valve shaft with some brake exhaust lubricant, it was thick. I made sure to clean well and make sure the valve moved freely.

    It is a pretty easy job, I will in future remove and clean maybe every 35-40k miles and may even have a spare valve in the car in case I have an issue like @Gator had on vacation. I think if you clean it on regular basis would never have a problem.

    I buy my fuel at just three stations most of the time. I drive mostly highway.

    Hope this helps.

    That's fine on my side. I also plan to show a pic of what EGR looks like installed and it's location on the engine. Prior to this problem, I didn't know where it was located.

    I left my little tool pack in the trunk, just in case I ever need to remove on the road.

    The forum and all saved me several hundred $$$ since no tow bill and the dealer just replacing the valve vs cleaning it.

    I didn't even look...should have...I did test the EGR to make sure it would close just by hooking up the EGR not installed, yikes it's a smoky mess, shut car off quickly. Amazing it lasted as long as it did. The emission system has issues for sure, but dang it cleans up the soot and mess pretty well
