I've had the erg valve go bad twice on the same 2002 Nissan Sentra, back in 2006 and again this year.

still happening. Seems to have happened right after head gasket repair 4 weeks ago. mechanics can't seem to fix the rough idle. CEL was on and said egr... but then they checked egr and said it was ok and CEL stayed off
