Question about 1998 Toyota Camry
Well you should verify the code is the same, then have the problem repaired. Saying "It's EGR it's nothing to worry about" was unprofessional and should not be accepted. A better answer would have been "we know we don't sell the part that fixes this, it is a Toyota only part"
Your EGR system needs to be functioning correctly for proper engine operation as well as for correct emissions and optimal fuel efficiency.
I will go out on a limb and say that I suspect you have the 5SFE 4 cylinder engine?
These engines commonly have the EGR VSV fail, causing the incorrect/insufficient EGR flow code.
The VSV is an electrical vacuum switch that is located on the back of the engine... unfortunately it is located right below two very common oil leaks on these engine, which is what usually leads to it's death, if the heat doesn't kill it first.
The VSV is not technically difficult to replace, but you need to be a kind of flexible as there are some tight crevices you need to get your arm through to reach it. For this reason it is best left to a shop that has a lift for better access underneath the car.
