Question about Dodge Neon
The EGR valve helps your car more efficiently and completely burn fuel
by recirculating a portion of your exhaust and running it through the
combustion process again. This results in a cooler, more complete burn
of the fuel which decreases you car's noxious emissions by prohibiting
the formation of some harmful gases.
In most cases a bad EGR will have little to no affect on your cars gas mileage or performance. There are some cases though where there is a noticeable difference.
If your EGR valve is not functioning correctly your car will not pass emissions tests if they are required in your county or city.

Well when it gunks up from heat and exhaust residue and hence no longer moves to permit or preclude exhaust gases into your combustion system; either your warm engine combustion or your cold engine combustion will not be right and no doubt a SES light will come on. However there are no doubt tens of thousands of old cars running around with stuck EGRs.
It has a function, that is why it is there. Things that go wrong in replacing it generally include busting off a bolt, failure to properly clean the metal surfaces meaning a leak as soon as the new one is installed, and sometimes they can be in a place which is just damned inconvenient to work on.
