    as it turned out-the problem was in the wiring harness that connected to the EGR valve,I brought a new EGR valve that came with a new wiring harness and instructions saying to check the wiring harness with the EGR valve of which I ignored just replacing the EGR valve instead,sure that it would solve the problem-it didn't-same check engine light & code.I then swapped out the wiring harness,re-installed the old EGR valve...no light no code,problem solved.A note of caution the wires in the harness are not color coded and should be spliced one at a time to avoid a mix up....Hope this helps Good Luck........CC.Small in St. Louis
