Question about 1997 Toyota RAV4
If its the same code it should be fairly easy to see if the EGR valve is functioning correctly. Its vacuum operated so with the engine running you can apply vacuum to the solenoid and expect the engine to run extremely bad if not stall. If it does than you can move on to the solenoid that controls the valve.
If it doesn't stall the engine or make it idle bad than you'll need to look closer at the EGR valve, the exhaust supply pipe or the inlet into the intake which could be partially blocked with carbo build up.
If the code is different that you'll have to take a look at whatever system it is pointing to.
