Question about 2000 Chevrolet Impala
It will probably fail after a few years ,so why go to all that trouble. Got to come off,then you most likely can't clean it,depending on the type of valve.

Sometimes you can remove them and clean the carbon build up off of them and lubricate it before you reinstall it. Make sure you can find a new gasket before you take it off. Usually you ruin the gasket removing the EGR. Good luck. Please rate me so I know how I'm doing. Thanks.

You have to the EGR valve (sometimes the Intake manifold to EGR Vlalve line also). After you remove it take a drill bit the about 20 % smaller than the actual hole of the outlet side and rotate the drill bit with your hand to dig out the carbon. Aditionally the line coming from the intake manifold to the EGR valve will clog near the connection to the EGR valve. I use either a single piece of copper wire or the wire that you would use to tie ribar together to clean the line. When your done cleaning take a piece of vacuum line and connect it to the diaphram side and **** on it... then plug the line well with your thumb. Grasp the valve and blow thru it... Air should blow thru it freely. Remove your thumb from the vacuum line and try blowing again.. No air should pass thru the valve.
Then reinstall the valve and start the vehicle with the vacuum line disconnected (but blocked off) Use another piece of vacuum line connected to the diaphram again and **** on the line.. The vehicle should die or run really bad. If it does this then you cleaned it correctly.

Hello! Cleaning works at times...The EGR is bolted to the back-side of the intake manifold...Two bolts hold it in place...More than likely it's fouled with carbon...However, looking at the age of the vehicle I would recommend replacing it...
Auto Zone sells them for $74.99...The part # is EGR3173...Guru........Saailer

Not sure why you would want to clean it and not just replace it..... it's a cheap part that is normally replaced as part of a tune up. To clean it, remove it and spray it out with a spray degreaser, engine cleaner, carb cleaner, etc. Make sure to rinse it completey and make sure it's thoroughly dry before reinstalling.
