The code on 2005 suzkui forenza is p2279 say i have a vaclum leak and to change egr gasket have done that and still the vaclum leak its said i have any way to fine the leak

The code is for an intake leak, not just the EGR valve.
In most cases the leak is the hose to the valve cover or one of the hoses to one of the sensors is damaged.
Check the hoses, and if you replace anything make sure you disconnect the battery to clear the memory of the computer.

96 Stratus wont restart after it is warmed up, dealership has changed distributor, computer, crank pos sensor, coolant sensor, oxygen sensor

What about the spark control Module? Sometimes when these get hot they either run rough or die and won't restart until it cools down.

I have a 1999 Protege 1.6L with 93,000 miles. And a
1996 1.5L with 170,000 miles.
When my light came on, I got the EGR code read out at Advance Auto ($0). I googled 'Mazda EGR' and found this is frequently due to carbon buildup in the throttle body. It seems the carbon restricts the flow from the EGR, which then calls for a more open valve, and the error code is "excessive flow". Go figure.

Very easy to disassemble throttle body (just check to see where the EGR line is attached to the intake air path, just prior to injector assembly). Sure enough, a clump of carbon around the EGR port in the throttle body. Cleaned it up with a paper clip, Q-tip, and carburetor cleaner. Total cost < $3.
Cleared to code. No light on now, car runs fine.
If your "EGR VALVE" is bad,
you can get one cheap at the url below, and they take Pay-Pal.
Then you can install it of have it installed.

A less expensive fix is to replace the engine Coolant/Antifreeze "Temp Senser"
This will cut fuel to the injectors if not working properly.
Also replace the engine coolant "Thermostat",
when changing "Temp Senser".
You can pick up both at Auto-Zone for about $35.00.
This fixed our 1996 model. The 1999 model was fixed by replacing the
EGR Valve.

Hope this helps.
