Question about Cars & Trucks
Before I attempt to explain replacing the EGR let me suggest strongly you take it to a professional. The problem for the DIY on this project is the EGR is exhaust - this means a lot of the time you need fire - to release the threads on the old piece. The EGR is very high heat because it carried exhaust. This tends to rust because of the moisture in the exhaust gasses. Please consider the cost of a set of torches or even the cost of replacing the surrounding units that many times will bend - break or leak.
If you really want to go ahead with it - here is some Video on it.
Best of it

The egr valve is located at the end of a hose that plugs into youe valve cover. It is pushed right into a rubber grommet that is located in one of the valve covers. I hope this helps. don.t forget to rate my nswer, thanks

This might sound crazy but it works with these Escapes most of the time. Go buy a can of Seafoam from your part store. With the engine off, disconnect the brake booster vacuum line and place it in the can of sea foam. Start your engine and keep your foot on the gas pedal and keep the RPM's around 2k.The vehicle is going to smoke like crazy for 10 minutes or so, when the smoke clears up for the most part, go drive it for a couple of miles and see if that helps. It cleans out the carbon buildup from you intake and sensors and takes care of that code you getting most of the time. OR, you purge canister needs to be replaced...

you probably have blocked passages in the intake manifold. remove the egr and check the port for a clog. you can scrape most of the carbon out with a pick or screw driver and then use some spray carbon cleaner in there. also check the metal exhaust line to the egr

Testimonial: "i looked at what was discribed and that wasnt it.Good thought thouh"
Remove the throttle body housing on the top of the intake, it is a 90 degree tunnel like small piece held by 4 small bolts, turn it over and look for two holes, these holes are for the EGR valve flow, they are probably plugged up with carboned crud, clean them out with the tip of a screwdriver if neccessary to remove all the crud, once its clean reinstall it and reset your check engine light, hope this helps, let me know

SOURCE: EGR VALVE ON 96 FORD PROBE SE
If it's a 2.0L, 5 speed (1994-7) there are two DPFE solenoids (both w/ 3 vacuum ports) near the oil filter, which control the EGR valve. They are discontinued and impossible to find except on junked cars. (FORD #'s K5T44093-4)
I have to junk my 1996 Probe if I don't find them - Missouri emissions.
