SOURCE: CHANGE EGR VALVE
The EGR valve is up on the left hand side of the engine RIGHT next to the oil filler cap.
It has an electrical lead running to it, and there is a pipe running down to the exhaust pipe.
Hope this helps!

up on manifold but most are vacuum operated check again to make sure a solonoid operates this device .. usually when the egr valve goes bad the vehicle dies at intersections or stopping

SOURCE: FAILED EGR VALVE
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.
The EGR valve is vital to your car's emission controls.
When the EGR valve goes bad, it must be replaced - it cannot be repaired.
The EGR valve, or Exhaust Gas Recirculation valve, is a vacuum controlled valve which allows a specific amount of your exhaust back into the intake manifold. This exhaust mixes with the intake air and actually cools the combustion process. Cooler is always better inside your engine. The exhaust your EGR valve recirculates also prevents the formation of Nitrogen related gases. These are referred to as NOX emissions, and are a common cause for failing emissions testing. Unfortunately, your EGR valve can get stuck, causing NOX gases to build up. You'll know if your EGR valve is stuck or malfunctioning because your car will experience symptoms like rough idle and bucking on accelertaion.
The only short term problem is a decrease in gas mileage - but it should really be replaced before sensors become sooted or your cat. convertor gets overworked prematurely.
