Question about Cars & Trucks
Silicone spray lube. When it dries there won't be any oily residue left over to attract dirt like would occur if you used WD40.

If you have small hands it can be easy. The space between firewall and EGR is tight but it wasn't too difficult to remove. The vacuum hose at the bottom was hard to pull off and I ended up cracking it and had to splice it. It was more difficult to re-install the EGR then remove it. I had a difficult time with keeping the gasket aligned while bolting it in to the lower tube. I took a few attempts. I suggest when replacing the EGR leave the mounting bolts loose so you can more easily align the metal tube. I would tighten the metal tube at the bottom of EGR first then tighten the upper two mounting bolts on top. It took me about 5 minutes to remove and 15 minutes to replace. I would be sure to clean the IAC too after cleaning the EGR. I sprayed throttle bottle cleaner down the bottom hole located on the throttle body and let soak about 15 minutes then start and run the engine a minute and repeat the process. This helped smooth the idle while stopped at a light. It also stopped the idle from shaking and almost stalling the car out at a traffic stop when the engine was warm.

SOURCE: no vacuum to egr valve
there is an EGR vacuum solenoid somwhere that controls on/off vacuum to actuate the valve. i am not to sure of the location, but follow the vacuum line back from the egr until you find a device that looks like an electrical check valve for vacuum. that is a possibilty. but then again i am a ford,chrysler guy and am just giving you an answer based on my understanding of the functuality of a vacuum egr system

You block it off before the valve on the metal pipe that runs to the EGR valve. The problem is that when you go to get it smogged you have to replace the EGR or it will not pass smog

it's getting to much egr the egr has gone bad and needs replaced.
the diaphragm in the egr is leaking, and default position for air is defrost.so when you hit 3000 rpm you don't have enough vacuum.

SOURCE: EGR Solenoid creates no vacuum
The EGR solenoid is located towards the rear of the car from the EGR vavle and slightly towards the center. It kind of stands on end. There is a vacuum line coming out the top (port C) and a green 2 wire connector plugged into it. Hope this helps.
