That sounds like a lot. The part should be only $50 or so. Check with some other repair shops.

SOURCE: how do you clean the egr valve on 99 pontiac montana

You would need to remove it and look into the passage that is covered in black soot. there is usually a little poppet that moves up and down to allow the exhaust gas to pass thru it, some are vacuum operated and some are electric. you can push the poppet open and scrape out the carbon with a little screw driver, generally they dont get all that pluged up on newer cars. I looked at a picture of yours at auto It appears yours is electrically actuated. If either the electric actuator or the position feedback in the valve are bad you would need to replace it. You could attempt to clean it and move the poppet up and down it could just be stuck

I want to install an egr valve on my 97 breeze myself. Seems easy enough. I just want added insurance from an expert. thank you.

I wouldn't cal myself and expert but have been doing it for about 30 years and am ASE Certified but enough about me. Yes it is quite simple to change out other then that one metal tube that is on there can be hard to get off due to years of heat and carbon build up so make sure you have a good hold on it so you don't strip anything. I would spray it down with PB Blaster to halp loosen it up. I do want to mention that there is an EGR valve transducer that is caligrated for the old EGR valve so you will need to replace that as well. I had a file here for the breeze and Dodge Stratus which had the same engines I think a 2.0 but don't quote me on that. Anyway took some pictures with instructions on check and replacing them. I hope this helps you and good luck. The pictures might not be exact but the same concept.

1998 plymouth breeze: Engine light on. Code reads exhaust gas recirculation flow insufficient detected. Code is P0401. What does this mean?

EGR system failure. The negative battery cable must be removed first. The EGR is the system under the hood, between the fuse box and the block. The TCM Looks kind of like a radiator, and needs to be removed to access the EGR valve. It has two vaccumn hoses connecting it to the vaccuum system, make sure you keep track of where they connect to. Loosena nd removed the bolts holding the EGR, and gently remove the EGR valve.
Remove the old gasket and replace with a new one, install the new EGR and finger tighten the bolts. Make sure the vaccuum hoses are placed back on (label them if needed), once you have ensure that you have everything installed properly, then tighten the bolts on the EGR to 200 ft. lbs. Re-install the TCM and connectors, reconnect teh battery and you should be good to go.
