Do you see if the manifold was cracked? usually the problem is not just the egr valve it has a modulator it is either electronic or vacum controlled, now the right way to check or the first thing to do is if there is vacum at the valve and from there check to see if there is vacum at the egr valve only wheren you rev the engine aroun 2000 to 2500 rpm , but i suggest you not to rev the engine at this rate too long if the valve opens thne the next thing to do is remove the valve and makd sure that the egr port is not clogged up with carbon if it is plugged up you can just knock them off using a small screw driver or such and clean the passage with a wire brush and put the valve back always make sure that you put it back using a new egr valve gasket.

regarding the noise make sure that all other tubing that go from the exhaust manifold is not broken it is not just the muffler that is involved in the exhaust sys that keeps the noise down!!!

remove the EGR valve and clean the carbon from the port it is connected to, they are known to get clogged up, you may also have a bad egr valve.

Tcs light and engine check light on my 2000 honda odyssey

I had the same code/symptoms a few weeks ago. Dealer did a nice job checking through all the details. Replaced the egr too, but no improvement. Finally found one cylinder not firing correctly (not the same pressure as the other cylinders.) Dealer did a value clean/adjustment, for about $250, and the problem has been gone for about a month now. We are also getting about 15% better mileage.

Hope this helps.

EGR is not the cause. They messed up on the rebuild Take it back to them and demand they fix it if it is a respectable shop they will have no problem looking into it. and if not a respectable place they are going to give you the run around if you know what i mean
