You can get one at Auto Zone for about $80. bucks there not cheap, but not too hard to replace. ps it's also a good idea to change the vacuum lines as well there cheap as well. Mike

My egr valve keeps cracking

What you should know is the EGR valve is an Extended Warranty part under Federal Pollution guidelines. While the mileage and age of your vehicle may have exceeded the Warranty period of the original Factory part, there are some guarantees on the replacement part depending on the brand.

That said, it is The EGR that is the victim rather than the cause of your problem. Overheating of the EGR is the likely cause of the cracking. The EGR is not apparently opening fully or at all.

This is a problem. Because the onboard computer should be monitoring the various switches that control the opening and closing of the EGR valve.

I would suggest having the passages to the EGR valve cleaned. Have the Vacuum lines to the EGR valve checked for routing between switches. Incorrect routing of the Vacuum lines can also cause poor acceleration.

Smoking, EGR valve failure, etc can be a clogged Exhaust system too!

Before buying another EGR see if you are eligible for a free replacement.

Have a compression test done to verify engine health and replace the sparkplugs at that time.

Please comment on my info.

Diag codes for trouble shooting po141,po404,po440

Code 141 is the O2 (oxygen sensor) gone bad, needs replacing.
Code 440, 442 and 445 are all in the EES (Evaporative Emission System). They are leaks in the PCM (Powertrain Control Module). It tests this system when there is about one fourth tank of gas left.
This system controls fumes from the fuel by storing it in a vapor canister until they can be burned off. This system has several parts in it. You have the solenoid (which is a vent valve and a purge valve), fuel tank, a vapor canister, and you have lines coming from engine vacuum port, going to the vent valve. But you may want to check your gas cap. This is the culprit most of the time. As we take it off and on, it can cause leaks. This is also the cheapest solution. You'll have to clear your code with an OBD scan tool, to see if it was repaired by replacing your gas cap.
Also older vehicles can have a leak around the fuel filler neck where the gas cap attaches to is a seal and it could have gone bad.
A lot of times that seal is leaking around that filler neck. So more likely than not, it is leaking and/or gas cap needs replacing.
A 403, 404,405 are in the EGR System.
401 and 402 are the EGR valve.
You will get these codes because the PCM has sent them. It will send them to test the system as part of a self-diagnostic test and the other reason it sends it is because it wants to monitor the EGR system through everyday, normal operations.
This is what is known as PCM command. It is looking for correct signal of the wires to make sure they are working right from the solenoids in the EGR valve.
There is a problem in the EGR system that needs fixing. Sometimes replacing the EGR valve will fix the problem, but before you go out buying a lot of parts for your car, have a mechanic shop test the EGR system.
Good luck.

The engine malfunction light turn on and brought it to the dealer. said P0406 and needs egr replacement. but the light turns off again and after a week it turns on again for 1 day. now the light is gone....

Sounds like you have a carbon buildup in the valve. The EGR should be located near the altenator on the right side of the engine, depending on what engine you have. 4 bolts, 2 8mm and 2 10mm.. take it off and careful not to lose the metal gaskets.. spray the valve down with carb cleaner and wipe it out.. pump the valve to make sure it plunges ok and replace. should fix your problem. Or you can replace the valve yourself new for about $80.
Here is the procedure if you care to do it yourself.

Tools: 8 mm socket, 10 mm socketEquipment: Replacement EGR Valve, Replacement EGR Gasket (metallic)1. Disconnect the electrical fitting attached to the EGR valve. You will need to unlock it (red tab) and then depress the latch near the rear of the fitting before sliding it off.2. Disconnect the vacuum tube connected to the top of the EGR valve using an 8 mm socket. It may be easier to remove the entire vacuum tube by diconnected it at the top of the engine as well (also 8 mm).3. Using a universal socket joint (I found using a 1/4" drive was necessary to get the clearances around the alternator), remove the 2 bolts holding the EGR valves to the exhaust manifold of the engine using a 10 mm socket. The bottom bolt is a very tight clearance.4. Remove the valve and gasket.5. To install, reverse the steps using the new EGR Valve and EGR Gasket.6. The 10 mm bolts should be torqued to 225 in-lbs7. The 8 mm bolts that fasten the vacuum tube to the EGR valve should be torqued to 100 in-lbs.
Tip: I have found that if you loosen the alternator mounting bolts, you can get just a little more wiggle room to get a socket on the bottom bolt.

Good luck, i hope this helps, please rate me a fixya.

It is more likely the DPFE sensor has a problem than the EGR, I replaced dozens of that type of EGR sensor, very few EGR valves.
