If I had been him, I would have talked you into a Chilton or Haynes manual for your car. They are easily detailed enough to show you the location and Iwould be surprised if a chain operation like AZ didn't have the right one on hand.

if this is a 4.7l engine, the valve is on the left rear of the intake. loosen the 8mm bolts that hold the egr intake tube to the egr valve, remove the egr bolts, disconnect wiring, remove valve and tube together, attach intake tube loosely to new valve, install new valve, tighten tube bolts to egr using a swivel socket, this is not a 5 minute job, so dont attempt unless you have some time and patience.

The p0300 What does that mean?
Basically this means that the the car's computer has detected that not all of the engien's cylinders are firing properly.
A P0300 OBD DTC code indicates a random or multiple misfire. If the last digit is a number other than zero, it corresponds to the cylinder number that is misfiring. A P0302 code, for example, would tell you cylinder number two is misfiring. Unfortunately, a P0300 doesn't tell you specifically which cylinder(s) is/are mis-
The p0430 What does that mean? Basically this means that the O2
downstream of the catalytic converter on bank 2 is detecting that the converter is not working as efficiently as it should be (according to specs). It is part of the vehicle emissions

To install the EGR Valve on a 2005 Durango first it is necessary to remove the air intake hoses and palce them to the side. Next, in order to get the EGR valve you will need to remove the windshield wiper motor, which is a pain but necessary to do get to the EGR valve. After removing all of the itemsthat are in the way you will be faced with a task that will try your patience, the EGR valve is located on the right side of the motor, (as if you were facing the motor from the front) just behind and to the rear of the throttle body. After you locate it you will need a rachet with a flexible head because it is fairly difficult to reach otherwise. A mirror and light will also help so you can see what you are doing since the EGR valve is located in such a hard place to see and get to that you will only be able to see part of it while you are removing the screws. After removing the EGR valve, simply reversethe procedure and your done. P.S. I own a 2005 Dodge Durango SLT with a 4.7L engine and I replaced mine this year after a check engine light came on and I checked the code on the OBD. By the way the EGR valve is a pain in the rear to change. Good luck!
