Get an estimate from a Ford dealer. Your problem may not take all the parts that Goodyear wants to put in. The dealer has recall info and may work with you to keep a Ford customer. You say your compressor went bad, but that may be the result of a problem and not the cause.
You can also try independent shops rather than franchises. But you may not know of any. Sometimes I ask at Police stations if I need help for reliable service places.

I assume (based on the code) that you are referring to the egr valve. Here is a picture showing an EGR valve (not from the freestyle):http://i133.photobucket.com/albums/q48/tommyliuca/egr%20valve/1-1.jpg
The freestyles looked similar and is in a similar location. Looking at the engine from the front of the car, the EGR valve is to the right of the engine and a little further back (closer to the driver).
Let me know if you can find it, or if you need a picture of the freestyle's (I own a 2005 freestyle).

The high pressure filter and fluid are supposed to be changed at 60k intervals. Ford has a very specific oil for this transmission and the service fee will be $300 to $450 - mine was around $420.
No other car place will touch the CVS transmission in a Ford Freestyle and most Ford dealerships are clueless on thier maintenance and repairs. On most issues that crop up the first thing they want to do is swap it out - for $4000+.
