    I can certainly relate to times being tough. Kia as a manufacture have put a lot of technical information on line for free
    you have to sign up but its all free.
    The EGR valve is on the drivers rear of the engine (air filter housing side of engine). There is also a electrical control solenoid that could be the problem, plugged passage ways, a vacuum hose that could be knocked off.
