    Attach a small diameter hose to the EGR port of the ERG valve, suck on the end of the hose with the engine running, the engine idle should get rough and the engine may even stall if the EGR passage ways are clear and the system is working efficiently.

    I am not very familiar with EGR valve. could you tell me which EGR port I should use? the are two ports on egr valve itself. one is pointing straight up and the other one is located on the side and it has this little bend. I did performed a vacuum test earlier using the port that is mounted on the top, but I didn't see any changes at all.does it mean that the egr is valve is bad? I hope I used the correct port that you were talking about..
